•   When the 28–year–old Texas native Andrew Combs first surfaced in Nashville a few years ago, his highly melodic, moody songs earned him some lofty comparisons: People talked about Townes Van Zandt and Mickey Newbury. On his second album, Combs honors those heroes and the moment of their flowering, when country craftsmanship met folk storytelling and the sweet flash of post–Gram Parsons pastoral rock. Combs’s voice is so evocative on All These Dreams, and the settings he creates with his collaborators (led by the outstanding guitar duo, Steelism) are so rich, it’s a damn good thing his lyrics live up to the presentation.
•   His 2010 debut EP Tennessee Time earned him rave reviews from critics, his former internship colleagues included. That EP would eventually score him a deal with the Nashville branch of New York based publishing company Razor & Tie, with whom he would go on to release his first full–length album, Worried Man, in October of that year. Worried Man was a breakthrough critical success for Combs, praised by outlets like No Depression for “setting the musical pace for the next wave of Americana.”
•   “It has become so open to so many different types of music that I don’t find myself alienated at all. I grew up listening to what my parents played: Simon and Garfunkel, Jackson Browne, Harry Nilsson. Then I got into Kris Kristofferson, Mickey Newbury, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt. The majority of them all came through Nashville and gave it a shot,” he says. •   “That was always my goal, to come to Nashville and write songs. I feel like people are hungry for actual songs and are fed up with the mediocrity that’s been handed them.” :: http://www.americansongwriter.com/
Review by James Christopher Monger, Score: ****
•   The sophomore studio long–player from the Texas–bred, Nashville–based singer/songwriter, All These Dreams doubles down on Andrew Combs' '70s countrypolitan/soft rock predilections, offering up an always melodious and warmly lit distillation of all things Glen Campbell, Mickey Newbury, Mac Davis, and Harry Nilsson — both the amiable opener "Rainy Day Song" and the easygoing "Nothing to Lose" regularly threaten to break into "Everybody's Talkin'." The album's first single, "Foolin'," perks things up a bit; with its steady, Jeff Lynne–inspired backbeat and earworm of a chorus, it finds a nice middle ground between the cool retro Americana of Caitlin Rose and the pure radio pop acumen of Traveling Wilburys–era Roy Orbison. That same architecture is revisited on songs like “Long Gone Lately” and the lovely title track, both of which strike a nice balance between fedora–wearing indie pop and heartache–heavy new and old country, but Combs is first and foremost a balladeer. •   Songs like the slow dance–ready “In the Name of You,” the bucolic, pedal steel–laden closer “Suwannee County,” and “Strange Bird,” the latter a sweetly sung, smartly sentimental celebration of women both won and lost that would make Jim Croce smile, are so evocative of a certain age that you can almost smell the mingling of cigarette smoke and English Leather as you walk past the jukebox to order another pull–tab can of beer. All These Dreams, much like Combs' expressive voice, feels lived in and authentic, and while it may lack some of the gravitas of his heroes, it certainly never does them a disservice. :: http://www.allmusic.com/
