Andrea Carlson’s new album, “Drivin’ Myself Wild For You” , takes you on delightful journey through songs of love and life. This award-winning singer/songwriter from Philadelphia may echo 30s and 40s jazz and blues, but she brings to it a new point of view stamped with her own unique sound and style. Born in Tennessee, and then moving around all over the country, Andrea settled in Chicago for a time. There, she was a student of Fine Art there at Columbia College, and then later at the American Conservatory of Music, where she earned her BM in Classical Guitar. However, singing was also a passion, namely jazz. Throughout her studies she moonlighted as a vocalist with several different bands doing music from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. This continued for 10 years, and she was able to perform in many of the top venues and festivals- a highlight was opening for the one and only James Brown! Once moving to Philadelphia, she began to perform solo with her classical guitar, singing and playing all the jazz standards that she loved. More and more, she found herself writing extra lyrics to the songs, and sought new ways to arrange them. Realizing she had yet another interest, she began composing songs of her own. Not long into her new venture, she entered a contest with the Philadelphia Songwriters Project. She was a winner that year for their song writing contest! Her new album was made at Morning Star Studios with the Grammy award-winning engineer and producer Glenn Barratt. He teamed her up with the most talented musicians of Philadelphia to draw attention to the feel and character of Andrea Carlson’s music, with stunning results. Thanks Joy Novie&SPONY!
