Andrea is a singer-songwriter from the Sunshine Coast with Australian Fijian roots. Andrea weaves melodies and storytelling together to create a rich tapestry, much like the way her Fijian grandmother used to weave pandanus mats in the village.
Each song is crafted in a way that allows the listener to subtly enter into the space between words and really experience the story, whether it be a love story or about letting go. Her music crosses into various contemporary genres including hip-hop, folk, funk and soul, however it is her smooth laid-back vocal tones that make each song come alive. Her voice has been likened to Norah Jones, Tracy Chapman, India Arie and Joan Armitrading. Andrea helps aspiring singer-songwriters with mentoring advice and runs workshops that meld poetry with song and music. (www.andreakirwin.com)
