Bio

“If she just so happened to write all these songs well she could be bigger than any of us realize at the moment. Open Spaces from Andrea Desmond showcases a Top Flight Independent artist from the Seattle area. Let me go on record and say Andrea Desmond is one artist to watch in 2014." - Cyrus Rhodes, The Muse's Muse (Jan 23, 2014)

"Desmond captures lightning in a bottle that will ring true not only for older more experienced listeners but new ones as well. How is this possible? Only an experienced artist armed with an honest, genuine, sincere approach can pull it off.” - RJ Frometa, Vents Magazine (Feb 25, 2014)

“The more I listened to this CD the more it feels as if Desmond is one of those 'under the radar' artists that has a lot of potential. Perhaps that's what Spectra Records saw in her because shes not under the radar anymore.

I want someone like Andrea Desmond to sing me a timeless melody - it's that simple and real.. Her voice and musical signature are to say the least magnificent." - Michael Morrison, Music Emissions (Feb 07, 2014)

"All tracks are powerful, melodic and infectious, which doesn’t even begin to describe the inducing vocal presence of Desmond.. In my mind she is a musical triple threat. She’s got a good look, she can write music/play piano, and she’s a great singer." - Andrew Weiss, Music News Nashville (Feb 26, 2014)

"After listening to Open Spaces by Andrea Desmond it’s evident to me Andrea's talents with her band are far beyond what I imagined or even expected. She has a powerful writing style and voice and look that many people will gravitate towards." - Travis Ford, Rock N' Roll View (Jan 29, 2014)

"Open Spaces EP by Andrea Desmond is an incredibly fluid musical statement from beginning to end. It provides brilliant artistic vision from an amazing singer and subsequent musical visionary… Perfect pacing, intriguing compositions and a stellar voice have her scoring big here with me! 5/5 Stars" - Natalie Brennan, Skope Entertainment Inc (Jan 28, 2014)

"She seems a likeable, genuine, and all around kindhearted person. Sometimes a good heart and a nice voice is all it takes to reach the next level. Her future is bright and full of potential.” - Markus Druery, Indie Shark Reviews (Jan 27, 2014)

Andrea, also known as Seattle's "indie pop sweetheart" (myseattlenightout.com), is a true musical free spirit! She is a singer-songwriter on piano who is nominated for a Shorty Award, a mini-version of the Grammys honoring the best of social media. She recently won Best Singer/Songwriter Music Video for Akademia Music Awards and also won first place for her song "Run" in the Eco Arts Awards: Songs of Freedom Competition. She was nominated for Best Adult Contemporary Artist at the Artist in Music Awards, for which she also performed at the Nomination Ceremony/Red Carpet Event in Hollywood. Now with her powerful backing band, the White Lights, they made it to the finals of the Seattle Jammin' Challenge, which kick-started her career in the city. They recorded four tracks at Toybox Studios with Justin Cronk of Vendetta Red back in September 2012, and soon after Andrea got signed to Spectra Records - one of the world's largest independent labels. The album is to be released soon. Currently Andrea is writing and developing new songs with Seattle's top producer, Martin Feveyear of Jupiter Studios.

Her music is hard to put in a generalized genre, but she incorporates elements of indie, rock, jazz, folk, and pop. Desmond received training in songwriting under the guidance of Alan Menken, the Oscar-winning composer of such Disney classics as Beauty and the Beast and Alladin.

Andrea’s positive attitude along with her sultry sounds, conscious lyrics and high-energy stage presence radiate her pure soul! When one hears Andrea for the first time, it will take the listener from a culture of despair and deliver them to a culture of hope! Her music, along with her sweet and compassionate smile, combined with her angelic voice, will remind you of good times while taking you to another dimension of bliss & harmony.

In past bands, Desmond has performed with Uh Huh Her, Chicago, Whitney Meyer, the Kyle Gass band, and Floater, from the Showbox, Seattle to the Whiskey a Go Go, Hollywood.

"After years of playing in others people’s bands, playing other people’s music, Andrea Desmond took the bold and courageous leap that all who aspire to follow their heart must do. She launched her solo career and fearlessly ran to her destiny" (examiner.com). Ever since that move in the summer of 2012, "her career is already off to a fast start, and we expect to see a lot more of this amazing young artist" (Seattle Wave Radio).
