Born in France a coal miner’s daughter, singer/songwriter Pauline Andrès is a true citizen of the world. Andrès has called Paris, London, and Berlin home, but discovered she was a little to country for the locals. She eventually made her way to Nashville, and found “her people.”
On February 2nd, the smokey-voiced songstress will unleash her new album, Fearless Heart, which features an eclectic mix of tunes ranging from heavy rock, to big-hearted ballads, to pure Americana. Even though she covers an expanse of stylistic ground, there’s continuity as she explores geographical instability, the heartache of searching for a place where she’d fit, and trying to find a place she could call home.
Today, Andrès unveils the album’s title track, a desert-tinged rocker filled with plenty of reverb and resolution. “We all reach a point sometimes where it’s hard to get back into ‘badass mode,’” she levels. “I recently even wondered if I had totally lost it, especially as I started working on this record, which took about two years to complete. But like in the song, I decided to continue and not give into the temptation of whining and feeling sorry for myself. And if I didn’t just have a fearless heart, then I’d work for it,” she says. “It’s really a song about faith and keeping keepin’ on, no matter what. I hope it can inspire people, whatever they’re going through. That’s exactly the spirit of the song and the reason why we crafted those guitar solos the way we did: they had to sound victorious.”
