Andrew Combs

OtherA Song (New West Records), Combs showcases songs that have had an impact on him at different points in his life. Songs by The Strokes and Radiohead are a nostalgic look back at teenage self discovery, while Loudon Wainwright IIIs 4 x 10 represents a more current perspective, reflecting on his life now as a husband and father.4 x 10 sparked the initial idea to record a collection of covers, says Combs.
