Karen Lee Andrews has reconnected with her guitar, hitting new strides and a new style, which can only be described as Oceanic Blues. And now this commanding Polynesian woman of soul is back with her own original music and EP “Far From Home Paradise”.
Her sound is an exceptional blend of American Blues and Soul. The roots of the sound are gritty guitar, glowing valves, lush tremolo and deep reverb in a distinctively fluid Oceanic expression.
Growing up around her mother’s large Polynesian family instilled in her the role of music in bringing people together. A powerful and rich voice that carries the mood and tones of love, pain and the blues.
Andrews mostly tours as a formidable trio, teaming up with Yanya Boston on drums and Adam Ventoura on bass – two exceptional musicians. Each musician is outstanding in his or her own right, but the dynamic of the group is exhilarating to witness!
“Andrews is on an inspiring and passionate musical journey. A must-see.” Beat Magazine
“Commanding and brilliant.”
