Andrea Lopez’s soft ballads mixed with mainstream pop rhythms are the product of a part Colombian, part Spanish, and part American background. She is a 23-year-old singer/songwriter and performer living in Miami. Andrea has adopted many rhythms stemming from her eclectic background, creating a fusion between Latin, country, folk, and mainstream pop. From her up-tempo carefree beats to her softer mournful ballads, her powerful lyrics are emotion-charged and often poetic, the result of honest stories arise from her life experiences. She cites early influences like Shakira, Avril Lavigne, Stevie Nicks, and Sheryl Crow.
Andrea wanted to transform her love of music and songwriting into a career, and knew that she would need to learn the business from the bottom up. To accomplish this goals she is now a recent graduate from the Bruce Hornsby Creative American Music Program, where she studied Music Business and songwriting. There, she also participated in Festival Miami 2013/2014 Annual Songwriter Showcase with her original songs "Safe Tonight" and "Let Her Know". The former was awarded second place in the competition.
Over the past two years and a half Andrea has been working along side Emilio Estefan in Crescent Moon Studios, assisting his team in production and songwriting sessions for top performing artists. Moreover, after graduating, she worked at the Estefan's corporate office in licensing and royalties for the Estefan catalog, where she learned the business of how an artist manages and monetizes his/her work. She has recently completed her debut EP consisting of five original songs and plans a release later this year. As Billie Joel said, "being a musician is not something you chose to be, it is something you are." Andrea is a true musician with a unique background and talent who is in it for the long run.
