For Andrea Hamilton, music has always equalled healing. Andrea began touring as a professional musician at age 16 after winning one of GMA’s Best New Song awards. She immediately made it her mission to inspire hope through uplifting pop music. After taking a two-year break to battle for her own physical health, her mission to reach those who need hope-filled music is even stronger.
Andrea’s cover of Bastille and Marshmello’s song Happier, in collaboration with German producer Koni, has 3 million streams and climbing. Her latest original pop single, a collaboration with Nate Vandeussen called “Running Wild,” came out on ATLAST Records this year.
Andrea’s latest EP, All But Lost, is her 8th album as a solo artist. Its five indie pop tracks talk about making the best of a difficult life. Each synthy, song is a perfect balance of fun and heartfelt.
Hamilton co-produced the record with her long-time friend Kevin Penner, owner of Greenbean Recording Studio (Los Angeles/Hawaii). Andrea’s angel-esque vocals and smart synth lines pair with Penner’s indie drum loops to form a sound like Haim, Imogen Heap and Ingrid Michaelson got tea together.
Andrea’s music has been featured in Extreme Home Makeover, Temptation Island, Bachelor in Paradise, Preachers of LA, Too Young to Marry, Snookie and JWoww, Freak Show, Mystery Millionare, Ex and the Why, and many other shows and indie films. She also co-wrote the theme song for TLC’s My Giant Life.
