On his new album, ‘Ideal Man’, Andrew Combs worked with producer/engineer Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby, Benjamin Booker) to achieve a more raw, direct sound. The collection was captured live in Cohen’s Brooklyn studio, with compact arrangements fuelled by taut, elastic grooves. 


While Combs may be best known as a singer/songwriter in the classic 1970’s Laurel Canyon sense, he demonstrates the true versatility of his work here, often setting the acoustic aside in favour of atmospheric synthesizers and distorted electric guitars. 


Combs worked with some of his favourite writers on the album, including Dylan LeBlanc, Jeff Trott, Joe Henry and Kenny Childers but the stories he tells here are deeply personal and remarkably vulnerable.
