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 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 the Bay Area 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 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 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 EP 'Songs For Forever.'
The first track on the album ‘Only Eden’ was included in the 61st Grammy Nominations Ballots on Independent no1s 'Acoustic Special for the categories Best Album of the Year and Best Americana. The sixth track, Dreams (deluxe version) was included in the 62nd Grammy Nomination ballots on Independent no1s, 'Break Through Artists' for Album of the Year. 'Dreams' was also chosen for National Indie Radio (WNIR)’s BEST Songs of 2019 Radio Special, and on Feb. 5th - 2020, the artist was selected for BWH Music Groups' ‘2020 Women to Watch – BEST Female Independent Artists.'
Plamondons' new music video will be released in the fall of 2020.
