AUSTRALIA | 2021 PARTICIPANT
Andrea Kirwin is an Australian-Fijian Artist/Producer based in Nambour on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. With a warm stage presence, retro soulful sound and a knack for storytelling, Andrea has been steadily building a national following since the release of her first album, ‘From the Ground Up’ in 2013. Having self produced 5 independent albums, she has continued to build a sustainable music career and has now opened up a shopfront for her record label, Peace Run Records, at 14 Queen St, Nambour.
Andrea’s unique brand of island soul has continued to evolve over the past 8 years since she has been recording her original music. Having built her career as a singer-songwriter over the years by gigging up to 300+ shows a year, she has become a seasoned and sought after performer at events in the South East QLD. Her original tunes are influenced by artist’s such as Carol King, Otis Redding, Corinne Bailey Rae and Norah Jones. Andrea’s laidback style of folk-soul-jazz has crystalized in her new album, BLOOM, which was launched on 1 May 2021 with a full band show at Sunshine Sounds Festival, QLD, curated by Katie Noonan.
