Biography

Twenty-four year old singer/songwriter Andrea Davidson began her love affair with performing and composing music when she was a senior in high school at the age of 17. She wrote her class graduation song after playing the guitar for only 3 1/2 months. Following high school graduation she worked at a law firm long enough to save for all the necessary equipment she needed to make a living playing music. At the age of twenty she left Madison, Indiana to broaden her performing skills in a more fertile music environment. She chose her birth place, Louisville, Kentucky, as a first professional home.
As she began gigging throughout the Louisville scene, playing bars, clubs, music venues and private parties, time proved the singer and the city to be a fabulous musical match. Davidson is blessed with a powerful roomy voice that retains emotion, unique timbre and uncanny dynamic control. More importantly she has a special connection to her many fans that can be witnessed singing along to her most familiar songs.
"There have been countless amounts of outstanding songs and enlightening conversations that have played a part in what I write," Davidson says, "However, I've been most influenced in my life by the giving and receiving of love and compassion." It’s this love and compassion that punctuates her songs with insight and depth far beyond her twenty-four years.
Her honest lyrics and soulfully intense voice can be experienced with the release of her new album Retracing Steps. Embracing skills earned and perfected from her 800 plus performances since she's been to Louisville, she draws 12 songs from her vast catalogue of original compositions into an astute and musically incisive album. Through this sparkling debut, Andrea is feeding her fans an intimate invitation into her emotions. Her music is suffused with a multitude of influences ranging from the melodic vibrations of The Beatles to the lyrical resonance of Bob Dylan, the soulful sounds of Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye, to the acoustic feel of Ray LaMontagne and Patty Griffin.
Andrea interrupted her year long recording process of Retracing Steps to travel to Cape Flats in South Africa where she taught music to a school of children living in highly underprivileged areas for two months. Her main interest lies in making change through her music whether it be awareness in areas of social justice, the environment or through any other forms of activism involving peace/nonviolence movements. She is a humanitarian and is looking for ways to merge her music and global betterment into one powerful package.
