Listen to the Debut Full-Length Album
From the vein of Gregory Alan Isakov, Brandi Carlile and Ray LaMontagne comes Andrew Michael Akins - a singer-songwriter who strikes a balance of emotive traditional folk and southern-tinged country soul. Aptly described as "Texas-Folk", the 25-year old songwriter already boasts an impressive catalogue of two EPs and a full-length album, each self-produced and engineered. Akins' pension for honesty and depth are reflected lyrically in all three works, poignantly touching on themes of spiritual doubt, family, hypocrisy, depression, and love. The young Amarillo-native profoundly weaves in his own experiences unabated, providing listeners a deep well of empathy and grace.
