The best kept secret in music


"Female Talents Take on Anodyne's Stage"

When operating outside of Conscious Congress, the emphasis of the songwriting changes from serving rhythms to often melancholy and yearning singer-songwriter confessions and observations. ANDII sang the four such vignettes comprising her 2019 solo EP, What I'm Good At, and five others, including Conscious Congress’ “No Sense,” in a voice that finds middle ground between Melissa Etheridge and Bonnie Raitt’s bluesy bluster and the gentleness of a Sarah McLachlan or Lauren Daigle.

With the muscular backing of her guitarist, keyboardist, drummer and bassist, ANDII sounded vigorously challenged by more maximal arrangements than the more folk-styled musicality found in her recorded solo work. And she met the challenge handily with fortified vocal oomph and aggressively amiable magnetism. - Shepherd Express

"ANDII adds a tropical touch to “Winter Blues II”"

“Winter Blues II” follows up ANDII’s 2019 EP What I’m Good At. Like the songs from that album, the new track is buoyed by Heath’s strong voice and plainspoken lyrics. (Opening line: “Sitting on the couch in my underwear / Trying to think of something clever, but it’s just not there.”) Coupled with a L’Resorts-esque island vibe, you have, in the artist’s words, “a veritable life raft for both herself and others who struggle finding hope during the most desolate time of year.” Goodness knows we all need one. - Milwaukee Record

ANDII wasn’t supposed to be a musician—not if the scatter-brained, ten-year-old version of herself had anything to say about it, that is.

Growing up in a family of vocalists, ANDII was drawn to visual arts, literature, and science instead. The very first thing she remembers wanting to be was an archeologist, in fact. Music, while ever-present in the way of hand-me-down guitars and long-forgotten lessons, wasn’t something she imagined she’d ever be good at. 

At 15 years old, however, she learned that her hearing would be lost in the matter of a few short decades due to a genetic anomaly. Unsure of when she might lose the gift of sound, her desire to author music intensified. She taught herself the basics of guitar, leaning on the distant memories of lessons she’d taken previously. She first learned songs by some of her favorite artists, building an understanding of songwriting and storytelling, until she finally broke away and began writing her own material.

More than a decade later, ANDII has written dozens of songs about life, love, and loss, and there simply isn’t any path that makes more sense for her than that of musicality and vulnerability.
