Speakers » Andria Simone
Performance She’s chasing her dream of being an R&B and soul singer. And she's determined to succeed.
She’s chasing her dream of being an R&B and soul singer. Of finding a home among acclaimed singers like Aretha Franklin, Annie Lennox, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Alicia Keys and Aaliyah. At 24-years-old, Andria Simone may well one day join this “A List”. For now she’s earning her stripes by writing and singing her heart (and soul) out on Canadian stages.
The riveting and forceful Do What I Want showcases her bold feminist approach to life and Shame is a classic Southern-soul style ballad that captures the power of Andria’s pipes to full effect, Nothing Comes Easy is rousing and gospel-tinged, while Change is a deeply personal song, inspired by those facing illness and hard times.
It is live performance that captures Andria’s heart. “I would rather sing live than hear my songs playing somewhere,” she confesses. For Andria chasing this dream is her reality: “This not working out is not an option. I will just keep doing it.”
