Nov 8, 2013 - Andra Suchy
Raised on a beef and wheat farm in North Dakota by folk musicians, Andra Suchy began touring and performing at festivals at a young age. Classically trained and a veteran of musical theater, the guitar-playing singer moved to Minneapolis in 1996, where she has gone on to make a name for herself as one of the finest vocalists around. A regular performer on the national radio show A Prairie Home Companion, Andra has performed around the world, singing with such artists as Brad Paisley, Mindy Smith, Emmylou Harris, Chris Thile and soprano Renee Fleming. She has recorded with a wide range of indie, rock, blues and folk acts, including The Honeydogs, Jonny Lang, Peter Ostroushko and Soul Asylumís Dave Pirner. Although mainly known as a vocalist, Andra has been quietly honing her songwriting craft, self-releasing a solo album in 2006 called Patchwork Story. Just signed to Grammy-winning label Red House Records, she released her new album Little Heart on March 27, 2012. Full of infectious originals, the album is a twang-tinged mix of country, rock, folk and blues, which is sure to be a favorite on Americana and AAA radio. Already generating a lot of buzz and media interest, this album shows that Andra is poised to become the next big voice in country, Americana and roots music. Throughout 2012 Andra toured in support of the new album and showcasing at various festivals, including South By Southwest (SXSW) and the International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis.
