Composer/Lyricist/Guitarist/Vocalist Andrea Carter
Carter has been composing since the age of 5!
Playing guitar, writing lyrics, and singing was always a part of
her life. But 15 years ago, it became a major part, performing with
her own band "Andrea's Fault" (which for those not living in California,
the name is from the famous earthquake fault line: The San Andreas
She now is a full-time prolific singer/songwriter and able to capture
your story down to the last detail with warmth, poignancy and humor.
Her sultry voice, reminiscent of 1940's Torch Songstresses, adds
to the romance of her music. Her lilting ability to switch from
one octave to the next is evocative of Sarah McLaughlin.
Reviews from her fans are sensational! Here are just a few:
||From Mike in Indiana:
Wow! What a surprise...A little Diana Krall and Norah Jones
mixture, with original lyrics and a great sounding group all
||From Robert in California:
What greatly impresses me is the "jazz classic" qualities of
Andrea Carter's original melodies and poetic lyrics; this plus
the fine performances by vocalist and band.
||From Elissa in Southern California:
I love Andrea's lyrics! She wrote about my fiancé and me and
absolutely nailed it! He laughed…and teared up! It was a great
success! Now he is in love with Andrea ;-)
