THE STORY

Born in France a coal miner’s daughter, Pauline Andres made a name for herself with a sweet and smoky voice that “perfectly conveys the thoughts and observations of an old soul walking home at closing time.”

Her nonchalant style serves an inclination for the ordinary suffering and every day disappointments combined with subtle literary references. The songstress recently settled in Music City after spending 5 years in Berlin, where she recorded the accidental EP ‘Fuck You French Girl‘ and 2 LPs: ‘All Them Ghosts’ and ‘The Heart Breaks’. Both records helped her build a reputation as a unique lyricist and vocalist.

After the positive reception of ‘The Heart Breaks‘ in the US, she decided to join “her” people, in the American South. This decision gave birth to her 3rd LP, to be released early 2018.

She’s written, composed, played and produced all the songs on the new record, faithful to her independent nature and work process. But for this new album, she wanted a bigger, better sound. And so she’s had help. First and foremost from long time friend and former band member Jack Davis (Bear Witness Production) a Berlin based producer and multi-instrumentalist. But also from musicians she’s worked with before including Thomas Guiducci, Stefano Chiappo and Nashville based pedal steel champion Andy Ellison.

The record was mixed by grammy nominated engineer Ross Petersen, who’s worked with some of the biggest names in the industry including Andres’ hero, Bruce Springsteen.

For the  time being, Andres will call Nashville a home and play several shows in town this Fall. Catch her with a full band or at several local writers’ nights where she’ll showcase her many new songs with her weapon of choice: an acoustic guitar.

“A heart-wrenching lyricist whose words cut to the bone”  Bucket Full of Nails

“Stunning” PopDose

“A heartbroken sigh that builds slowly into a Honky-Tonk triumph” (Loneliest Girl in Nashville review) The Autumn Roses

“Her songs are threaded with the smoke-filled stories of 3 a.m. drunks and back alley voices, but manage to walk that line between slinking off into the shadows and keeping one foot in the light of a passing car” Nooga

“Like Cline and Carter, Williams and Sandoval, Andrès has helped us remember that it is often the simple things that will help us overcome.” The Revue

“Much more than the standard Nashville Americana shuffle and twang (…) in soulful alt-country and dark folk where allusions to violence and alcohol are only a chorus away.” Post To Wire

“Pauline Andres is one hell of a songwriter” Global Texan Chronicles 

“A studied, literate debut filled with truths, half-lies and possible falsehoods, Andrès’ All Them Ghosts is a whiskey-shined diamond in the rough.”  Bucket Full Of Nails

“A dusky, hard-livin’ voice (..) channels the deep roots of americana” The Modern Folk

“A new voice with an old soul” Poet And Pariah

“All Them Ghosts (…) is thought-provoking and above all, deeply impressive. The phrase ‘write about what you know’ never seemed so apt.” Right Chord Music

“With the spirits of a thousand noir lit nightclubs coursing through her veins and a voice conveying well-worn observations, Pauline Andrès will stick to your soul.”  Global Texan Chronicles

“A commendable achievement” Live And Die In Music (Album Review & Interview)

“A collection of murky, smoky-mountain monuments to pain and ordinary suffering. Successfully articulated by an unusual Honky Tonk angel (…) Juddering ‘Chocolate Shoes’ is a monster-truck on a rubber-road – and ‘She’ has the same power, authority, darkness and even the manly step of anything by Johnny Cash.” Raw Ramp (All Them Ghosts Review)

“stunningly sharp songwriting where violence and sorrow meet a profound I-don’t-care-anymore attitude that harmoniously clash with each other while calling for another drink” Muses

“Like a Lynchian lullaby – all brooding menace, and dark-eyes girls in riding boots. With guns.” Highway Landscapes’ Video Lost At E Minor

“She’s already been compared to Nick Cave. She sounds like a younger Patti Smith” Indie Sounds

“Here are three of my favorites – She, I Remember Her and Sweet Fortune Tellin’ Ma – chosen because of they way they showcase both her rich smoky voice, the interesting ways she winds threads of rock and roll through a country framework, and her storytelling skills”  Now This Sound Is Brave

“I Remember Her is a fresh new lens-flared indie americana track, that marries Pauline’s signature smokey vocals with a killer vintage telecaster sound and bold carnivale organ.” Groundsounds.com

Fortune Tellin’ Ma’ makes it to the Hall of Sound & Vision on Beat Surrender

“Her vocals drip with a sultry menace, while the bluesy guitars twang in the distance and the driving percussion plays. It’s rebellious, angsty and raw.” Cracked Wax

“Her voice is warm and beautiful … reminding of a younger version of the great PJ Harvey (…)We forget that we are in Berlin right now and picture ourselves drinking whisky in some lonesome bar lost in the wide American countryside”  Live Review @Auster Club in Berlin by It’s Only Music But Live
