Andrea Marr
Watch Me Work It is Andrea Marr’s latest album of raunchy soul/blues. Without pretension, Watch Me Work It encompasses the full emotional range of what it is to be a woman: fearless and unapologetic at times, compassionate at other times, and always playful. Andrea Marr grew up in Sri-Lanka. Singing gospel in church at a young age, and was influenced by her jazz musician father. was. At age 7, she heard Elvis Presley and unknowingly began interpreting jazz standards with blues phrasing. “I only realised I was singing ‘blues’ at 16 when someone told me they loved my bluesy feel.” She recalls.

Three albums on, Andrea Marr reigns as one of Australia’s premier female soul/blues vocalists. Marr has won such prestigious blues music awards as Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society Blues (MBAS) Performer of the Year, and Victorian Blues Artist of the Year. In 2006, Andrea Marr represented the MBAS in the Memphis International Blue Challenge. This blues competition is the worlds largest gathering of international blues bands - all competing for recognition in the USA. The event was a successful showcase of what Australia has to offer the international Blues scene. Andrea Marr takes her gospel-influenced vocals from the likes of Etta James, and her emotionally gutsy phrasing is reminiscent of KoKo Taylor. However, Watch Me Work It is distinctly Australian soul/blues, featuring Lloyd Spiegel on guitar. “Watch Me Work It sounds like a blues band having a lot of fun with a chick singer in front being cheeky. It's true to what I do live for the most part and that's what I love about it. Sassy, soulful blues...” Marr explains. The sassy Andrea Marr has been part of the Melbourne blues scene for some years now and finally people are sitting up and taking notice... and rightly so. -Inpress Magazine (Melbourne)
