Biography

Best known as the frontwoman for acclaimed Colombian Latin band Aterciopelados, Andrea Echeverri has long captivated audiences with her potently melodic brand of feminism. On March 8th, her debut solo album Andrea Echeverri will be released by Nacional Records, the new Warner Music Group-distributed label focused on promoting the best in Latin music.

After the critical and commercial success of 2001’s “Gozo Poderoso”, which landed Aterciopelados on the Top 10 of the Billboard Top Latin Albums Sales chart as well as a coveted appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Echeverri took time off for the birth of her first child Milagros, who has proven to be a new point of artistic inspiration. The result is the self-titled album Andrea Echeverri, Andreas first solo release. The disc was produced by Hector Buitrago from Aterciopelados and mixed by Thom Russo (Juanes, Kinky, Johnny Cash), and also features a remix from Richard Blair (Sidestepper).

On “A Eme O”, the albums upbeat first single, Echeverri observes the bond between mother and daughter as Milagros cries late at night. “Some songs are written for Milagros, but they sound like they’re written for a lover,” said Echeverri. Going ever further, she satirizes the highly sexualized lyrics of the Colombian genre called champeta, naming one of the albums tracks Lactochampeta. Its kind of a joke, because it has explicit lyrics about lactating.
