Recommended to me by listening to Huey Morgan interview her on BBC 6 Music (Sep 5, 2010), Andreya Triana is an experimental soul artist.
I’ve heard a sample of her music on MySpace, and I’m already feeling her drift. ‘A Town Called Obsolete’ has a brilliant sense of forgotten days gone by about it.
Andreya grow up in South East London, and though my memory of the interview is a little fuzz, she came across as a really enchanting lady. What I can recall as clear as day is that she was totally speaking my language when she said she’d like to collaborate with the likes of Nina Simone, De La Soul and Gnarls Barkley – artists she adores.
During the course of writing this post I discovered that she has already released a debut solo album. One more album couldn’t hurt, right? Beside, I’ll need all the help I can get if I’m to get through this 10,000 word dissertation – which I’m still to start!
