A classically trained 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 Met. But the artists first love was creating and performing original music.
The eclectic chanteuse has fronted bands with styles ranging from rock to Middle Eastern (San Francisco), and played leading roles in theatrical productions on both the east and west coasts. Her songs and collaborations have been aired on internet and FM stations around the globe.
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 renewed dedication to classical vocal training.
One of Plamondons most intriguing efforts to date, is a collaboration with rapper and Hip- Hop artist, 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 more classical side, three songs co-written with Irish film composer and orchestrator, Connor Hutton (who has worked with Academy Award winning directors Ridley Scott, Peter Pau and others) are featured on the artists soon to be released EP.
Plamondon is currently working on video shot in the outback of Arizona .
