"Tropical Soul"

"Local island child, Andrea Lindborg, has returned home to put a band together and rock the house at the Yokwe Yuk Club once again. Performing a night of originals with local musicians, she was a true tropical soul, lighting the stage with her beautiful melodies and soulful trumpet solos." - The Hourglass


"Females Rock the House"

Andrea Lindborg, one of the lone females in the Oberlin Jazz Department, proves that musicians have no stereotypes. Born in Panama and raised in the Marshall Islands, Andrea forged her way into Oberlin's jazz scene and has proved herself as a player and writer. Drawing inspiration from people and places she knows, she dives into the depths of what it is to be a woman, a composer and musician. " Historically, men act and women appear, and that just isn't the case anymore. A woman still has to fight against this suggestion, that all she is good for is appearing a certain way. It's like people expect less of you, and you have to work twice as hard to blow their socks off! Everything takes time, and it is up to each individual to come to terms with their individuality. The thing about jazz is that you have the freedom, this colorful canvas to paint, and you can do so with your own flare." She truly has an understanding and appreciation of music, and certainly continues to defy stereotypes and provoke thought and reflection through her tunes and her own flare." - Defying Sterotypes
