Biography

Ireland (2007 – present)

Andrea Jane Corr, MBE (born May 17, 1974) is the lead singer and writes most of the lyrics for the Irish folk-rock band The Corrs. She also plays the tin whistle.

She was born in Dundalk, County Louth, Ireland, the youngest daughter of Jean and Gerry Corr, two musicians. She and her elder siblings, sisters Caroline (b. 1973) and Sharon Corr (b. 1970) and brother Jim (b. 1964), formed The Corrs to audition for the 1991 film The Commitments. Although all four appeared in the film, Andrea was the only one to be given a speaking part. But several years later, in another fleeting appearance in a major film, she was wanted strictly for a singing role - it was the musical Evita, in which she played Juan Peron’s mistress, who is abruptly displaced by Madonna’s title character. She stands 5’1” tall, making her the shortest of the four Corr siblings.

As the youngest member of the band, Andrea joined it directly from school, not having the chance to move into a flat of her own until the age of twenty-five. She has confessed to the distinctive habit of sucking her thumb for reassurance, and for recreation enjoys cooking, reading and going for walks. In addition, she is known to be doing live performances barefoot.

Andrea has recently finished recording her first solo album, titled Ten Feet High. The album is being produced by Nellee Hooper and is due out on the 28th of May 2007. Besides singing, she will also be playing the piano. The single track will be called Shame On You (To Keep My Love From Me) and we should hear it in the radio soon.

    Andrea....my heart hurts....ditch Brett, come be with me.....you're too beautiful for ordinary life...... And stay away from Mr. Hooper...I could have done a better job! I mean it and am sure of it -- I can just hear the album I would have put out for you.....you needed to some extent to duplicate those Corr harmonies, that music....strayed too far -- but still would have showcased you. Love knows what to do -- Hooper didn't love you & understand you from the inside like I do. And BTW, your bb girl was born on exactly the same day as I -- I like that -- strange Kismetic coincidences. Some day we will all celebrate together in Louth, okay? Take heart, in any case -- nothing can keep your talent and beautiful voice down.....

    She should have come back with an original album. Now I've almost lost interest in her.
