I've loved Andra Day since the first note I heard out of her mouth. She speaks to the bluesy soul music lover in me. She is getting a lot of comparisons to people I love like Amy Winehouse, Billie Holiday, Adele and Eartha Kitt but I honestly think she stands alone.
Her fist big exposure was on YouTube through her viral covers of Muse, Jessie J, Eminem and Amy Winehouse songs. Post signing, she released Rise Up, which has become a powerful anthem that I seem to hear everywhere these days. I can't wait to see more from this rising star!!
Check out her debut album, Cheers to the Fall and then buy it/stream it for yourself. Happy listening and happy Friday!
