Biography

Andersson came to New Orleans in 1990 to play violin with fellow singer-songwriter and Swede, Anders Osborne. Nine years later, she left the band. Since then, Andersson has performed and recorded with several well-known New Orleans musicians, including Allen Toussaint, The Neville Brothers, The Meters and Betty Harris. In 2007, she accepted an invitation to participate in Goin’ Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino, where she performed “When The Saints Go Marching In” with The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Andersson has performed Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and has been a performer at the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans.

One-woman show
Inspired by a one-man-puppet-show (Blair Thomas, Chicago), in which the puppeteer played multiple characters and the drums, Andersson overcame the financial impracticality of touring Europe with a band by learning to play with a loop pedal. She began by looping just her violin, voice, and guitar. Wanting to create a richer sound live, however, she began thinking about adding another loop pedal and more instruments. As a result, Andersson currently travels with two loop pedals, which she uses simultaneously, along with her record player, drums, dulcimer, guitar, and violin.

Melody, harmony, rhythm, timbre; these are the traditional building blocks of pop music.
