HullabaLOU Preview: Andrea Davidson [Music]

Print

On myspace, Andrea Davidson is categorized as Acoustic/Soul/Folk. If you ask Andrea, she’ll tell you it’s a little bit Beatles, Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye and Patty Griffin… all in one.

 

Originally born in Louisville, but growing up in nearby Madison, Indiana, Davidson has a relatively new infatuation with performing and composing music. Now 24, she first discovered her love affair with music as a 17 year-old high school senior when she wrote her class graduation song after only having played the guitar for just over three months.

 

She returned to Louisville shortly after graduation to continue her music career back in the river city. She has since played over 800 performances and recorded and released her debut album titled “Retracing Steps”. Andrea comes to HullabaLOU as one of two winners in the national “Hey Bands” contest. She will be performing on the Sunday ticket of the 3-day festival.

 

According to her website, Davidson references not only her experiences, but also the passion of her fans in the inspiration to her music "There have been countless amounts of outstanding songs and enlightening conversations that have played a part in what I write," Davidson says, "However, I've been most influenced in my life by the giving and receiving of love and compassion."

 

The references of love and compassion go a step further in her music as she was greatly inspired by a two-month stint in South Africa where she was involved with underprivileged children. That trip helped channel her music into a plight of awareness in everything from social justice, environmental issues or any other peaceful activism/movements.
