Atlanta based Andrea & Mud play Surf Western music- a unique blend of honky tonk, 60’s surf music, and soul, the combination of which is akin to Junior Brown, Southern Culture on the Skids, and Marty Stuart. The latest release, Bad News Darlin’, drew National and international attention, charting in the top 40 on AMA’s singles and album charts.
With recent Sync Placements (in the new award nominated/winning movie Red Rocket) and a new relationship with Warner Chappell Music Group, 2022 is set to be a great year for Andrea & Mud.
Surf-western music is a vigorous elixir – blending spaghetti westerns with rough-edged, honky-tonkin’ classic country. Atlanta-based duo Andrea & Mud draw upon genre stalwart Junior Brown, who coined the “surf-western” term, into their own special mix, tossing in heartier blues stock ala Shovels & Rope. Their songwriting is uniquely potent, and with their new album, Bad News Darlin’, they extract parts of themselves to cope, mend, observe, and grow.
