A genre bender, whose work has been described as "diverse, atmospheric and compelling" Andrea Plamondon was told early in her career that her voice would land her leading roles in the Metropolitan Opera.
The classically trained singer has fronted bands in San Francisco with styles ranging from rock to opera to Middle Eastern, and played leading roles in theatrical productions on both the east and west coasts.
Her songs and collaborations have received favorable reviews and have aired on internet and FM stations around the globe, including Hard Rock cafes from Mumbai to Delhi.
Prior to relocating to San Francisco, Plamondon had been attending 'Massachusetts College of Art’ on a full scholarship, when the suicide of her only brother, an actor and graduate of Boston University, sent her in an entirely different direction. That direction would include hitch hiking across two continents, a degree in Poetics and a dedication to classical vocal training.
One of the singers most intriguing efforts to date, is an online collaboration with rapper Terbleos of Ghana Africa. Their song 'No One' was originally released as the first track on Woa’ Records’ The Goa Chillout Zone volume 5., produced by MTV Europe Music Awards nominee and Platinum selling artist Oliver Sean.
On the Classical side, three songs co-written with Irish film composer and orchestrator, Connor Hutton (who has assisted Academy Award winning directors Ridley Scott, Peter Pau and others) are featured on the artists upcoming album 'Songs For Forever.'
The first track on the album, Only Eden, was included in the 61st Grammy Awards, nomination ballots, on IndependentNo1s Acoustic Special, for Best Album of the Year and Best Americana. The sixth track, Dreams (deluxe version) was included in the 62nd Grammy Awards nomination Ballots, on IndependentNo 1s, Break Through Artists' for Album of the Year.
Plamondon is currently working on promoting her new release, and on editing a video shot in the outback of Arizona.
