Hello Friends!

It’s an exciting few months coming up, and it’s all starting off this Thursday. I will be going in to chat with Jo Shoebridge on ABC North Coast 94.5 FM at 10 am, then over to Bay FM 99.9 in Byron to have a with Rich Bell at about 3pm, then off to play an intimate house concert in Ocean Shores from 7pm (Tom’s House Concert).

We are launching my brand new single ‘Daydreamer’ here in Australia on Friday 1st June at The Nimbin Bush Theatre where we will be world premiering the Daydreamer film clip on the cinema screen! Then on Sunday 3rd June we will be playing at The Beach Hotel in Byron Bay with some very special guests including Steve Russell on keys, and Scott French (A French Butler Called Smith) on trumpet. It’s going to be so much fun and I hope you can come along and celebrate with us! And for everyone who has been asking – The Daydreamer film clip will be on youtube/vimeo on Saturday 2nd June!

Friday 1st June also marks a wonderful day because it’s the last date of our Pozible fundraising project! Over 100 friends, family and fans supported our project and pledged from $20 to $550! With your help it has enabled us to really make our tour to the UK & Europe possible! Thank you so much for your generosity and excitement about what we are doing. If you still want to take part in Pozible, you can still pledge until Friday and pick your rewards.

Ten days after our launch here in Australia, James Ross, Goba and myself set off on a three month tour throughout the UK and Europe. We’ve managed to hop onto the UK festival circuit and includes the lovely Sunrise Celebration, A Lost Weekend, Larmer Tree Festival, and Tonefest! I honestly can’t wait and am so excited that I have already packed my bags… (nearly). We are booking more dates all the time and if you see that we are coming to a town or festival near you, we would love come and do a house concert/ party for you! So far we have dates for Germany, France, England, Switzerland and working on Prague, Paris and Denmark at the moment.

All our tour dates so far can be viewed here – www.andreasoler.com/gigs

So dear friends, we will be seeing you very soon! Much love, Andrea x

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.

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
