Artist: Courtney Marie Andrews
Song: “Heart and Mind”
A sure-fire contender for album-of-the-year honors, Courtney Marie Andrews’ May Your Kindness Remain reaffirms her rightful place among the most captivating singer-songwriters working today. And today we’re delighted to share the video for “Heart and Mind,” a poignant song that actually didn’t make the cut for the album’s final track listing, despite being a recurring part of her live performance over the past year or so.
“I wanted to write a song that embodies the importance of empowerment when you feel weakened my misrepresentation and/or sexual harassment,” Andrews explains in an official statement. “Even if our bodies have been misused or taken advantage of, we have the power to speak with our hearts and minds. The most powerful way to display that message is with simple conversations with those who love us. The mother/daughter bond is incredibly powerful, and I use that to embody protection and safety in this song and video."
