Andrea Marr, considered the queen of Australian Blues for her high energy, joyous performances, and clever tongue-in-cheek lyrical content, is proud to announce the release of her first official soul album - the EP Sass & Brass
. The sound is a combination of soul and blues, filled with the genuine passion of someone who has truly loved and lived this music. It's a powerfully energetic, brassy, big sound, reminiscent of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Ike & Tina Turner, and the JBs. The album is the result of a second collaboration with co-producer Cam Scott, also Andrea's keyboard player and arranger for several years. It's a follow up to her last CD, Little Sister Got Soul
, which peaked at #18 on the Living Blues Radio Charts, and garnered many recognitions and rave reviews, including 2009 Australian Female Blues Artist of the Year. Although short and sweet, Andrea's new EP serves up a heaping helping of steamy, sultry soul to shake your booty to.
