Andrea Soler, Nimbin Bush Theatre, tonight
Byron Bay Community Centre, Sunday
Singer-songwriter Andrea Soler’s music evokes the tradition of the troubadour with a beguiling joie de vivre, taking the listener on a journey through the realms of indie folk, jazz, roots and world music. Andrea’s voice has a tone often described as wild honey.
She wins hearts wherever she goes and has also won some awards, taking out ‘Female Vocals’ and ‘World Music’ categories at the North Coast Music Industry Awards.
Andrea is regularly on the road touring throughout Australia. She is not only getting ready to launch her latest single Daydreamer here in Australia at the beginning of June, but is also about to set off on a three-month tour throughout the UK and Europe. She will be sharing some of her antipodean warmth on the UK festival circuit, including Sunrise Celebration, A Lost Weekend, and Larmer Tree Festival, and is also venturing to new territories – Germany, Switzerland, Denmark – while also returning to her musical roots in Paris and Abbey Road Studios in London where all her releases, including Daydreamer, have been mastered.
Since the release of Andrea’s debut album Earth On An Axis she has become a festival sweetheart. Her band of gypsies has performed at last year’s renowned Woodford Folk Festival, Dorrigo Folk Festival, and Mullum Music Festival to name a few, and has also won the ABC North Coast Artist of the Week, and more recently became a 2012 Music Oz Awards finalist.
Andrea plays the Nimbin Bush Theatre on Friday at 7pm and the Beach Hotel on Sunday from 5pm.
