Mandy Rowden - Kickin' Butt With a Pen and Guitar

Tasty Brew Music

I met Austin singer songwriter Mandy Rowden some years ago when she breezed through Kansas City to meet up with former tour mate Duncan Hill. I quickly became a fan of her music and work ethic. The icing on the cake was she and my dearly departed friend Tom Green were from the same bustling East Texas metropolis of Sulphur Springs. We have stayed in touch over the years and I was so happy to recently have a conversation with her via phone on my Radio Show. We talked about trying to launch a new album via Kickstarter during a pandemic and the Texas 2021 Snowvid castastrophe going days without running water or power. Kicks butt with her pen.” –Austin Chronicle “Rowden tells it like it is over a wiry brand of alt-country, singing in a low-key, sleepily sensual voice that calls to mind Kim Richey or Lucinda Williams.” –Charleston City Paper As I said, brought up in East Texas, Mandy Rowden has been a practicing musician since the tender age of six. That’s when she began learning classical piano and guitar, laying the foundation for an eventual career in music – but it wasn’t until the Americana sound found its way into her soul that she embraced her true path: that of a real-deal, down-in-the-dirt singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who’s weathered some storms and emerged with tales to tell. In addition to making music of her own, Rowden is dedicated to helping others discover the joy of songwriting, vocal performance and instrument study. That’s why she founded Girl Guitar: a comprehensive rock school for women, bringing music enthusiasts of every skill level into six-week workshops with a rollicking showcase at the end. The Austin-based program introduces beginners to the basics of their chosen craft and encourages intermediate and advanced musicians to further hone their skills, all while surrounded by a supportive female community.

Adobe And Teardrops Podcast

For a complete transcript of this episode, click here! New website, who dis? Adobe & Teardrops condemns the violence against AAPI women this past week. I played a set of AAPI Americana artists in solidarity, and to remind us that this impacts the Americana world as well. Album of the Week: Melissa Carper -- Daddy's Country Gold I also wrote this up in No Depression. I can’t say enough that Melissa Carper is so freakin smart. Daddy’s Country Gold is vintage-style excellence, but it also subverts classic country music and insist on adding a queer presence there. As we’ll see on “Makin’ Memories,” a lot of this album is about questioning the past, and what really happened, and maybe seeing new things in it that we didn’t before. Gabe Lee -- “Ol’ Smokey (Reimagined)” (Single) (2:49) Mercy Bell -- “Black Dress” (All Good Cowboys) (6:40) Amina Shareef Ali -- “Farewell to My Man” (In the Dark (Awake of Course)) (11:26) Morgan Wade -- “Other Side” (16:26) (Reckless) Rob Leines -- “Saturday Night” (19:35) (Blood, Sweat, and Beer) Royal Horses -- “Time Wounds All Heals” (Single) (24:10) Sam C. Jones -- “Born to Love You” (Single) (27:44) Melissa Carper -- “Makin’ Memories” (31:56) (Daddy’s Country Gold) Mandy Rowden -- “Ghosts on the Arkansas” (35:48) (Parachute) The Heels -- “High Heels On” (Single) (40:36) Deadass Dobro -- “Through the Night” (Single) (43:23) Schmekel -- “FTM at the DMV”(48:54) (The Whale That Ate Jonah) Janet Simpson -- “Nashville Girls” (50:11) (Safe Distance) Samhain -- “Let the Horses Run” (Single) (53:07) Ontarians -- “No Regrets” (The Greatest Short Story Never Told) (57:22) Yasmin Williams -- “Adrift (ft. Taryn Wood)” (Urban Driftwood) (1:01:54)  Podcast intro by Alma Contra, music from Two Cow Garage’s “Stars & Gutters” Send me music via SubmitHub! Send me money via Ko-fi or Patreon.
