Courtney Marie Andrews steals show at the Abbey

Friday night I had the pleasure of attending Bare 4 at the Freemont Abbey. This is a completely a capella show featuring members of several Seattle bands and solo artists from the area. Each artist or band performs three songs and then on to the next one with no real down time in between.

The night started with a great performance from Kevin Long and continued with amazing sets from Naomi Wachira, The Cellar Door, Pepper Proud and others. Motopony front man Daniel Blue closed the night out with the crowd right in the palm of his hand as always and Lemolo’s Kendra Cox performed as a singer for the first time ever. She was noticeably nervous but it didn’t matter one bit because once she started singing she had the full support of the audience and sounded fantastic.

The one performer on the bill that I was not familiar with was Courtney Marie Andrews. This young lady, with the help of some friends, stole the show in my opinion. As soon as she started you could see jaws dropping around the room. Expect to hear more about Courtney in the future because it became very clear to me in a matter of seconds that she is a monster talent.

Check this video of her performing Neil Young’s “Helpless” and see exactly what I’m talking about.
