Country girl meets city girl. Nature meets industry. A advanced intercrossed of folk and electronica, Andrea Revel's back LP Citysong has been dubbed 'folk-tronica' or more affectionately "Morcheeba goes to Nashville". It's a natural evolution for a musician transplanted from Calgary's hotbed of folk to the urban soundscapes of Montreal.
Dedicated to twisting the expectations of a single genre, Andrea has taken folk into the world of playful and sly emotion - from the femme-fatale of the 1920's flapper to the lovelorn and always proper fifties girl. Still keeping to what she knows best, Citysong showcases Andrea's trademark finger-style guitar playing, worldly melodies and true-to-the-bone lyrics.
The transition from acoustic to electronic was not easy for Andrea. Although inspired by the softer sounds of urban music (Jurassic 5, Spearhead, Portishead), she couldn't fathom writing in this style. It wasn't until Andrea collaborated with electronic producer Michael McCann on his project Behavior, that she could see where electronic music could take her writing. Andrea was so inspired that she decided to abandon studying the flamenco guitar and East Indian Classical voice to delve into the world of bleeps and beats.
Andrea's debut LP, Mile 0 (zero), remains a devout testament to her folk roots. It was proclaimed one of the best folk albums of 2000 by CKUA radio and carved Andrea a niche in the Canadian music scene. In the Spring of 2002 the single 'Hands Bound' received over 4 plays a day on Calgary's commercial radio station Peak 107.3, and in 2004 her songs were featured in the Nike sponsored kayak video Girls at Play.
In 2002 Andrea spearheaded the Rogue Folks series bent on showcasing urban folk artists in western Canada. Rogue Folks (Kris Demeanor, Chantal Vitalis and Andrea) is known for a wry, irreverent and downright clever show.
