The Capitol Theatre in historic downtown Greeneville, TN will host an evening with Jill Andrews on Friday, November 3rd with the show starting at 8:00PM as part of the Capitol’s Appalachian Homegrown Series.
Beth Snapp will open the show. The series brings some of the brightest artists from our Appalachian region to the stage on the first Friday of each month.
Many will remember Jill Andrews from her days with The Everybodyfields, which blazed onto the alt-country scene in 2004. The EBF’s were co-founded by Andrews and Sam Quinn. The band released three stellar albums and after years of national touring, decided to venture off into other projects. Jill opted to make a go on her own and released a self-titled EP in 2009, followed up with the full-length album, The Mirror, in 2011 and The War Inside in 2016.
Since that time, Andrews has toured with the likes of The Avett Brothers, along with many other super talented artists. Her songs have been showcased on such shows as Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Wife, Nashville, Hart of Dixie and American Idol. Jill, who now lives in Nashville, spends much of her time song-writing and collaborating with a number of artists.
On her newest solo record, The War Inside, Andrews shines a light on her own struggles and successes, tying the songs together with a new sound that mixes her folk background with a wider set of influences. “It was a time filled with many new and exciting beginnings, as well as some deep personal loss,” says Andrews, who wrote the album after relocating to Nashville, TN. “The album focuses in on some particular moments of triumph, hardship, and hope.” The War Inside reaches into the pop and indie rock world, while still tipping its hat to Andrews’ Appalachian roots. Longtime friend Seth Avett even makes an appearance on the album, singing a duet with Andrews on “I’m so in Love with You”.
Tickets for the show are $15. For more information on this show, or other events at the Capitol Theatre, visit capitolgreeneville.org.
