Bio

Andrea Kirwin is an Australian-Fijian Artist/Producer based on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. With a warm stage presence and ever evolving soulful sound, Andrea has been steadily building a national following across Australia since the release of her first album, 'From the Ground Up' in 2013. She writes and arranges her songs with a focus on weaving melodies together intricately with purpose and passion much like the way her Fijian grandmother used to weave pandanus mats in the village back in her mother's homeland of Fiji. Her sound is an earthy blend of roots/reggae/funk and soul and her distinctly warm voice waxes and wanes between her more gentler songs and upbeat crowd pleasing tracks. Being self-funded and a full time independent artist, Andrea loves to perform in many various forms including solo, as a duo (as the Kirwin Sisters), Trio, four piece and six piece band. She is also currently putting together a mighty 11 piece band for her next musical evolution leading into 2018. Check out www.andreakirwin.com for more info, music and merch.
