She weaves melodies and storytelling together with her band to create a rich tapestry, much like the way her Fijian grandmother used to weave pandanus mats in the village. The daughter of a Fijian Preacher, Andrea grew up singing gospel and her live band performances are a soulful, funky, smooth and often spiritual experience. Her music crosses over various contemporary genres including hip-hop, folk, funk, blues and soul, however it is her gospel style vocal tones that make each song come alive. Her voice has been likened to Tracy Chapman, India Arie, Joan Armatrading and Aretha Franklin to name a few.
