NYC based singer songwriter Andrea Wittgens returns to Sullivan County for an evening of acoustic songs at The Nest. Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada, Andrea's songs are little pieces of cinema, moving effortlessly from stark to technicolor. Described as a sonic shapeshifter, her performances have "the energy of early punk with the slickness of modern pop." She'll be joined by guest vocalist Lena Kaminsky and will perform songs from her upcoming full-length album as well as fan favorites from past releases. A sampling of Andrea's lyric art ("Southpaw Ink") will be on display and available for purchase at the show.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought unexpected creative isolation and for the first time in over a decade, Andrea re-immersed herself in deeply personal solo writing. The result was a remarkable canon of new works to be released over several projects in 2023/2024 including a much anticipated full length album recorded in Joshua Tree with vocal producer Ainjel Emme (John Legend, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Concurrently, she is finishing an EP of solo piano recordings from live sessions in Milwaukee as well as a boisterous album with Atlanta rock darlings The Steady Wicked. Lastly, Andrea recently teamed up with artists Kate Vargas and Eric McFadden to score the short film “Little Mouse” which premiered at the Dances With Films Festival in December of 2022 and won the Audience Choice award.
