Andrea brings her modern take on jazz to Rossland this January! ‘Super,’ as she is affectionately known, is an award-winning vocalist, composer and arranger with lots of heart. She has a unique approach to songwriting and it comes out in her work. Her performances showcase powerful vocals that exemplify both the gentle and the strong, the light and the dark. They lithely navigate the colours of the emotional spectrum from despair to joy, deep blues to pop confection, often in the same song. She’s in Rossland to perform at the Miners’ Hall on January 11.
On stage is perhaps where Superstein shines the brightest. She commands every room she plays, conducting an unforgettable musical experience with a combination of humour, charm, razor-sharp wit and a sincere connection with her audience. A truly interactive experience. Superstein’s debut at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival earned her a nomination for a Galaxie Rising Star award and she later shared the stage with Canadian female heavyweights Laila Biali and Brandi Disterheft.
Superstein’s latest offering, Worlds Apart showcases her true gifts as a vocalist, composer and arranger. The album consists primarily of original music in an impressive three languages (English, French, Hebrew), rounded out by fresh arrangements of classic jazz standards. It celebrates her upbringing in Quebec, current home in Vancouver and Jewish heritage. With jazz luminary Elizabeth Shepherd as producer and arranger, the new record brings Superstein’s fresh, modern ideas to the forefront. She breathes the here and now into the classics, while brushing authenticity into every note of every new song she writes. Her stylistic range is only surpassed by her uncanny ability to use dynamics to create a lush musical experience rife with emotion: deep, raw and always heartfelt.
Join the RCAC for the next offering in their 2019/20 Performance Series on Saturday, January 11 at 7:30 pm. Sponsored by Teck Trail Operations, BC Touring Council, BC Arts Council and the Government of BC.
Tickets are available at www.rosslandartscouncil.com or at ‘Out of the Cellar’ in Rossland.
