Why hello there! My name is Andrea Netherwood and I've been creating songs since childhood. As a child, I wondered why so many artists created songs that all sounded very similar to one another. I daydreamed that if I ever recorded music my music wouldn't sound like one long song, instead each song would be distinctive. Through the years, I've played in several bands and as it goes, some had falling outs~ The Xenophiles, Super Geek League, Height Weight Proportionate (a duo project with Erika Wolfe from Drive It Like You Stole It).
I'm strongly influenced by Lene Lovich, B52s, Wall of Voodoo, Eve Libertine from Crass, Tears for Fears, and Fad Gadget~~to name a few. I can find something that I like from every genre and my musical tastes span the globe and through the centuries. Currently my favorite period for music is from 1976-1985. My brother Ash and I used to fantasize about what it must have been like to be a teenager during that time because it was a time when many great musical innovations were occurring. Punk, industrial, experimental art rock, hip hop, electronic music, new wave, no wave...all of these genres were very raw and major labels were still taking chances on new sounds, at times controversial messages, and experimentation.
In addition to music, I enjoy doing/creating short films, videos, glass art, visual art, photography, dancing, social experiments, and performance art.
