Feeling a bit camera shy


RiaSoul or Andrea Velasco Deasy is a singer/song writer born in Anchorage, Alaska of Colombian immigrants.

In the Colombian culture music plays a central role as she was influenced early on by her grandfather who played concert classical guitar. At first, playing with friends in college dorm rooms, bedroom four-track recordings, then open stages at Ohio University in Athens Ohio--a move to Columbus OH brought her on the open mic scene as she has been playing at local venues coordinated by Multifestival.

My music is influenced by the spirit of folk-- trying to tell a story or provide a message, and soul-- trying to impart a feeling. My musical mentors through the years have been Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Dave Mathews Band, Elliott Smith, Tom Waits and many other soulful artists.
