The King and Queen of the Hillbilly Underground from North Georgia
Andrea Colburn and Mud Moseley sound like a panther screaming in the middle of the night, like a band of gypsies at a tea party, like a carefully curated hullabaloo held in a Wild West funeral home. Like Doc Watson and the Cramps had a heinous love child.
Just as much influenced by Willie Nelson, Tom Waits, and Hank Williams Sr. as new Country acts such as Colter Wall and the Deslondes, Colburn & Moseley keep somewhat of a traditional country and blues feel all while giving it their own haunting, part Piedmont, part psychobilly spin. Part Flat Duo Jets, part Bonnie and Clyde, this is not a performance that you will want to miss.
Andrea Colburn was born and raised in NW Ohio. After a difficult move to St. Louis, MO at 13, Andrea turned to music and poetry. Highly inspired by Bobbie Gentry and Led Zeppelin, Andrea wanted to learn to play guitar, so her mother bought her one as a gift at 14 years old. She half-heartedly learned and played throughout high school, but didn't stick with music. After life led her to Georgia in 2012, and she was befriended by a large group of bikers and musicians and she met all the right people, she started writing songs and performing almost immediately.
They say Mud Moseley was born somewhere near Winder, GA but this information could never be confirmed. He was found in the woods one day with nothing but a guitar and a pair of overalls. After intensive etiquette classes/reform, Mud was still considered a threat to himself and others and was released back into the wild. Rather than going back to his feral life, he decided to bless the world with his music and moved to the big city. The rest, as they say, is history.
“…poke in the eye for Nashville Pop.”, and “Andrea Colburn has a strong country voice and is a very fine songwriter. The world needs CDs like this to counterbalance the tedious Nash-Pop confections…”
-Paul Riley (Country Music People UK) ★★★★★
“ In a time when studio trickery creates artificial perfection, this bare bones, sincere collection of tunes from the heart is as fresh as a sip of just-brewed moonshine.”
-James Kelly (Creative Loafing) ★★★★☆
