What’s The Buzz ?



Hello groovers and shakers,

Hope this finds you all well. This is a little email to share some exciting news… Announcing I am on the line up for the inagural Falls Festival in Byron Bay, NSW Australia from 30th Dec – 2nd Jan 2014!

In March next year I will also be performing at one of my favourite festivals – The Blue Mountains Music Festival set in my old stomping ground of Katoomba, NSW. Make sure you get your tickets to these great festivals! www.bmff.org.au ( http://www.rvrb.me/fan_reach/pt?eid=text_email_lnk1000&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bmff.org.au ) fallsfestival.com.au ( http://www.rvrb.me/fan_reach/pt?eid=text_email_lnk1001&url=http%3A%2F%2Ffallsfestival.com.au )

The Arts Northern Rivers ( http://www.rvrb.me/fan_reach/pt?eid=text_email_lnk1005&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fartsnorthernrivers ) CONNECT Showcase, Thursday 5th December

Tuning my uke (and having a laugh) at the CONNCECT Showcase

Last Thursday we had a showcase of all seven artists who made the cut from nearly eighty applicants. It was such an inspiring night. I loved watching how much talent there is in my home town. From ‘Shiny Shiny’s’ new genre bending ‘House wife electro’ which makes electro with ironing boards and irons, the upbeat tracks of Aussie hip hop act ‘Supa Fresh’, to the warm and lulling tones of Sara Tindley. You definitely need to check these artists out. I played as a four piece and included Jake Dominey on drums, Scotty French on guitar, and Alex Elfes on bass. I’ll be hopefully posting some new videos and songs very soon.

What’s happening in 2014?

There’s some exciting plans for 2014. I’m going to be heading into the studio and putting down some new songs including: Wild Horse Mountain, Tin Can Radio and Dusty Broken Windows. I’m looking at them being released by mid next year. I’ve also started planning my third independent tour to Europe for July-September 2014. If you would like to book us for a gig, house concert or festival please send me an email and we’ll try and fit it into our tour schedule!

As an independent artist, making all of this possible is definitely not an easy feat! I’ll be creating a crowd funding project so that you can all get involved, have fun, and be a part of making it all happen…

Welcome to my first blog for the year, and thank you to all my
new friends who have joined this cyberspace connection!

Daydreamer EP Coming Soon…

It’s been two years since recording Earth On An Axis at the
wonderful Sonic Kitchen Studios (UK) and I’m currently recording
a brand new EP at Love Street Studios in Currumbin. It’s been a
really fun process and I am so excited to be launching
‘Daydreamer’ very soon. (May in fact!) Daydreamer has five
tracks and they are a collection of songs I’ve written on the
ukulele. It’s a sort of snap shot in time of how much fun this
lil’ instrument is and how the uke has inspired my song writing.
I love the way ukes are so portable and playable pretty much
anywhere. No wonder there’s an apparent shortage of em around
the globe.

We’re planning an east coast tour during May before jetting off
to tour in the UK and Europe in June-September. I’ve got some
dates already up on www.andreasoler.com so hopefully we’ll be
coming to a town near you! More dates and projects to be
announced.

COME AND CHECK OUT OUR ‘LIVE AT LOVE STREET STUDIOS YOUTUBE VIDEO

Me, James Ross, Shay Henderson, Elvis Callaghan, and Alex Elfes

I had the delight of playing the 2011/12 Woodford Folk Festival.

It was my first time performing with my own band, and I literally
had to pinch myself before heading on stage at The Duck (one of
my fave venues too!) We played live on ABC radio and also
featured on 4zzz’s Woodford program.

-Song writers on Song writing at Woodford-

One of my other highlights was to conduct a workshop on song
writing. I roped the whole band into this one because we all have
different backgrounds in song writing and music and we could all
bring something to the workshop. After an hour and a half, the
end product was an awesome song that we wrote all together –
melody & lyrics (with more that sixty people!). Luckily Goba
filmed it and it will be uploaded onto youtube .. Might be the
next big hit!

-Sewing, Bunting and a Film Clip-

It’s nice to have those days where you don’t have to be anywhere
in particular, the kettle is on, and the creative juices are
flowing. This happened for me and my mum a few weeks ago. We had
a brainwave to make some bunting for the upcoming Daydreamer film
clip. What better way to give a party-fiesta feel? Somehow this
bunting takes me back to childhood. Strawberry Shortcake,
climbing trees & sunny afternoon daydreams! Hope you like it!

Mum working her magic

I love the red with spots!

I think that was my 10th cup of tea for the day!

Until next time…feel free to share this email with your
friends, and if you want us to play a house concert in the month
of May in Australia, or June in the UK/Europe let us know!

Much love,

Andrea x
