Living in the beautiful coastal town of Ocean Grove has helped shape Andrea Robertson into the award-winning singer/songwriter she is today. With music that’s as natural as it is soulful, Andrea has a knack of fusing the blues, roots, folk and country with a dash of rock; combining the old and new seamlessly and creating a delicious treat for music lovers along the way.
Her vocals are effortless, her songwriting is beautifully crafted as she relates both the ordinary and the extraordinary in her own unique way, and although you can hear her influences are many and varied, Andrea truly is her own person when it comes to her music and sound.
“Robertson combines old and new seamlessly, with influences and instruments that are less common in the modern music scene appearing in her songs, and fitting in with an unquestionable ease, creating a new modern and unique sound that belongs to Robertson.” FORTE MAGAZINE
Andrea has two independent releases to date – the aptly titled debut album It’s About Time (2014) followed by her highly celebrated second release, Remind Myself (2017) - both featuring Australian Blues Legend, Chris Wilson on harmonica.
Remind Myself was beautifully mixed and mastered by former Melburnian, Nick Huggins (Two Bright Lakes, A Pocket Full Of Stones) now located in Point Lonsdale, Andrea’s neighbouring town, with critics and listeners likening the quality of the production to that of international songstress, Gillian Welch.
The release of Remind Myself was followed by a highly successful Regional Victoria Tour, bringing her trademark sweet-yet-edgy sound to new audiences around the State.
Winner of the highly sought after Queenscliff Music Festival Emerging Artist Grant in Nov 2017, Andrea will be recording again in late 2018, with album number three due for release in early 2019, followed by a further tour.
Andrea has also received public recognition for her contribution to the local music scene, and more specifically encouraging young people in music, when she was awarded the QMF Ross Lipson Award in 2016, she was listed as one of the Geelong Region’s top seven artists for 2017, and has also had significant recognition for her song-writing skills.
Regularly giving back to the local community and sharing her love of music with both the young and the young at heart, Andrea rightly has a reputation as being one of the region’s hardest working musicians.
She has worked with other highly esteemed artists including, Sarah Carroll (The Ukulele Queen of the Bellarine), Tim Neal (B3 Hammond Organist extraordinaire), Robert Calvert (Saxophonist - Nicky Bomba’s Melbourne Ska Orchestra and Wayne Jury.
