Born in Baltimore, Andrews is trained in operatic vocal performance, but several years ago she turned her talents toward songwriting and a more folk sound. Andrews has humorously described her own music as “part Sinatra, part Gillian Welch.” She is based in Atlanta but has toured extensively, playing intimate venues in the U.S. and Canada. She is also an activist and says, “The shape my activism takes is by lending my art, my voice, my influence – small as it may be – to causes I believe in.”
Andrews’ Greencastle performance is one stop in a long tour sandwiched between several shows in Chicago and elsewhere in the Midwest, before she returns home for a few shows in her adopted state of Georgia. Joining Andrews for the DePauw show will be local favorite Gus Moon, who will himself soon be touring with show dates in Kentucky and other points south beginning in early March.
