Andrea Tierra is a 24 year old singer-songwriter from Medellin, Colombia. She has been performing traditional Colombian music since the age of twelve. Andrea is the result of innovative mix of popular Latin-American rhythms with jazz, flamenco and the essence of her own poems which she brings to life on all her performances. Her songs are progressive with a shade of irony and are often politicized against world injustice. Her contralto voice touches the hearts of the audiences with her interpretations of contemporary love songs as well as new generation songs. Andrea transcends the age gap with the intensity that only a musical leader can do.
Andrea’s talent is a family tradition that has been growing within her since her childhood. At an early age she was part of her father’s theater company as a singer and actress traveling throughout United States with great success.
Since 2000, Andrea moves to New York and starts her solo singing career, forming a band and playing in the most popular bars and restaurants of the city. Among the many stages where she performed, she had the opportunity to sing in the annual Colombian heritage festival held at the Madison Square Garden and was one of the audience’s favorite artists.
