In 2009 Andrea embarked on her solo career and picked up a job songwriting at a local music school in Bega, NSW where she lived from 2009 – 2012. Andrea continued to perform at Festivals under her own name with a band of friends. In 2012 Andrea made the move with her family to the Sunshine Coast and things started to really take off. She recorded her debut Album, ‘From the Ground Up’, which she released on her own independent record label ‘Peace Run Records’. The album draws on her gospel roots, hiphop teen years and folk and reggae influences from her days with the Andi and George Band in Canberra. Over 1500 copies of the debut Album have been sold in 2 years. Andrea’s folk-infused chilled island style has found it’s home in the musical community on the Sunshine Coast, QLD, Her second Album, ‘The Story of Us’, is set for release on Friday 2 October, 2015 and will be another beautifully crafted Album. It can best be described as a sweet blend of Hip-hop, Reggae and Soul with an Island Style Roll. Andrea and her band will be touring Australia-wide from October to December 2015.
