Andra het haarself sedert haar vestiging in Pretoria ongeveer 10 jaar gelede behoorlilk in die harte van haar nasionale en internasionale ondersteuners ingesing, en Katvrou (Carina Laubser – joernalis) verwag dat “applous hoort te lui vir dekades wat nog kom” vir Andra se nuwe album, ‘A Sound or Something More’.

Alhoewel Andra se stem al vergelyk is met diè van kunstenaars soos Janis Joplin, Eddie Vedder, Marianne Faithful en Tom Waits, is haar stem uniek en haar styl haar eie.  Haar vermoë om haar luisteraars saam met haar op ‘n reis deur ‘n altyd-veranderende landskap van emosies te neem is uitsonderlik.

Pinto Ferreira van die Pretoria News beskryf haar tereg as ‘n kunstenaar met ‘n “majestieuse stem en hipnotiese teenwoordigheid” en Danie Marais (Beeld) as “’n stem waarin verlange, wanhoop en erotiese begeerte een word in ’n magtige stroom wat nêrens behalwe in die wye blou see kan eindig nie.”

Andra het haarself as ‘n uitsonderlike onafhanklike kunstenaar gevestig deur die laaste paar jare en het ‘n uitverkoopte Europese toer saam met Sara Bettens (K’s Choice), ‘n Standard Bank Ovation toekenning op die Nasionale Kunstefees in Grahamstad (2014), die gebruik van “Fall too Slow” van haar vorige album deur YP.com vir hulle VSA veldtog, en verskeie nastionale en internasionale uitnodigings om op te tree op haar kerfstok.

“A sound or something more”, Andra se 3de album, word op 14 November 2017 vrygestel by die Rockwoood Theatre in Parkview Mall om 20:00.  Dit beloof om ‘n belewenis van die sintuie te wees in die tipiese Andra-produksiestyl waaraan haar ondersteuners deur die jare gewoond geraak het.

Die album word deur Dave Ferguson, ‘n mede-musikant, beskryf as “beautifully crafted songs of pure honesty served with lashings of astonishingly unbridled force and matched with equally surprising reigned in fragility”. Die legendariese Koos Kombuis verklaar die album as een van sy gunstelling vrystellings van hierdie jaar en “verpligte luistermateriaal” en Valiant Swart beleef dit as “diep, emotional songs, ponderous, meditational, soms lig en speels – en natuurlik daai stem”.

Sekere liedjies wat deur kunstenaars soos Natalie Chapman, Cito (Wonderboom) en Anton Goosen uitgesonder word vir hoë lof is “Are you Free”, “Walls” en “My dreams forget to join me”.

    The light and darkness of her music, the ebbs and flows of her emotions, the intense passion and life that is infused in everything she touches takes me to the depths of myself.. the places we avoid because it’s too real, and in at the drop of a lick I’m on top of a mountain, cool wind soothing the scorched memories and dreams and when she plays her last note, I exhale.

  • Melani Vermaak

    Gosh, I don’t think I can compete with the way Letitia Kruger has described the journey that one goes on when listening to Andra’s voice, but still worth a shot for those tickets. Andra’s voice stirs every emotion that a person can possibly experience and thereby makes you feel so very alive. You start to see things clearer as her soulfulness and stories make you understand yourself and life a little better, you tune in more to the calm and understanding part of yourself. Her sound is as rich as her soul and her voice has an “undertone of desert”, meaning I literally can feel a little bit of the desert through her voice. Deserts are wide and open with little mysteries underneath the sand, and so is her voice. It stretches wide and it plays with you. There is no telling what she will be doing with her voice in a single song, there is always something new or captivating to discover. Also, her raw sounds reminds of of the desert because it is so natural, wild and warm! I think it would be epic to see her perform in Namibie, just for a small crowd. Never have I had the desire to experiment with drugs, but I do want to get high and her voice underneath the starry sky could me there.

    • Congratulations Melani! You are the lucky winner of a double ticket for this show!

    While i was still studying back in 2008 (busy with my chef course) a close friend of mine was driving into the college and was pumping Andra’s song Run Away…i was immediately hooked! Her voice, the sounds that came from the instruments!!! After that i had to see her perform and i will never forget her first performance that i was able to see – at Cafe Barcelona’s when they were still based in Elarduspark. I became such a fan that back in 2010 a friend and I decided to take a trip to Namibie where her Family has got a restaurant…the road that we traveled would not have been the same without her 2 albums!!!! Any mood you are in Andra has got a song for and that’s what a true artist is all about. She is never all for the fame but for the passion! Such an inspiration! I cant wait for my ears to fall in love with her new album and for my soul to be filled with great sounds! Xxx

    • Congratulations Jannie! You are the lucky winner of a double ticket for the album launch!

  • NADIA PRETORIUS

    She takes me to Europe where you can hear the buildings as she signs, those old cathedrals and museums,art galleries that old pub in the corner, that something…that freedom that going on a vacation without leaving your house/car.

    Andra’s voice is like that first cup of black coffee in the morning – dark, steamy and a shot of ‘wake up’ in a world that seems to drown out emotion and feeling. Every day we are told we are too much – too much noise, too little talking, too much complaining, too little of what is real, too much emotion, too little empathy. Andra uses her voice and her lyrics to tell me that I am not too much, or too little. I just am. And she celebrates that moment of just being, with a raw, powerful sincerity that touches me in that place of too much and makes me feel like I am enough. When you see Andra perform live, you realise that her voice is real, in all its facets, and that what you hear on her albums is nothing compared to the honest emotion and passion that she shows live on stage. When you first see her on stage, you cannot imagine THAT voice coming from THAT little body, but as soon as she opens her mouth and starts to sing, the power and skill of her voice blows you away. Her sound is unique, something different and she is an artist with something to say. She has a way of mastering her talent that makes it sound effortless, yet the precision and skill with which she is able to use her voice speaks of hours of honing her craft. Passion and skill, combined with powerful and raw vocals are what makes Andra unique. I would LOVE to win these tickets (as would we all) so that I can drag more people with to her opening and share Andra with as many people as possible. Her CD’s are constantly in my car’s player and I love nothing more than sitting in traffic, playing her tunes loud and being transported away from my day to a place where I can feel something good and beautiful. Her new album has been a long time coming and I would love nothing more than to share the launch and celebrate a Sound or Something More – can’t wait for the sound… or the more!!
