Andrews’ uncommon brand of avant garde music is characterized by a dynamic voice, delving between opera, theatrics, throat singing. By creating a tapestry of melodies, she composes musical realm of emptional depth and dissonance. “…A musical theater-cultivated flair for the dramatic—…experimental music that revels in the dichotomy between pretty and provocative.”- Willamette Weekly

The solo project of classically trained vocalist Kelly Ann (KA), from Oakland, California.
