OTHER WAY PRESS
“Andrea sometimes referred to as the perfect musician because she possesses the triple threats of amazing looks, a beautiful singing voice and music composition. She is impressive whether singing indie music or her typical genre of Pop and Electronic. Having worked in the LA area for a while to build her music knowledge, she has continued to deliver amazing songs. “Other Way” is a lively song that is a reflection of Andrea in that it is genuine, easy to relate too, beautifully sung and well written.
“Other Way” tells the story of friends who want to do more for each other and letting the light within shine. Looking the other way sometimes is important when there’s nothing else to do. Andrea brings her regular energy to the song, it’s fast-paced and “happy.” The production is excellent with all the instruments coming through and instead of overpowering the vocals, do a perfect job of complementing them. Mastering is also technically sound with every aspect of the song coming through the speakers beautifully. If you listen to “Other Way” with headphones, you will really enjoy the body of work that Andrea put together.
The song is quintessentially Andrea Desmond in the ways that it shines through from the beginning to the end. You can easily tell that it is one that a lot of work went into. Andrea continues to deliver excellent work and is an inspiration to other young artists on how quickly a career can skyrocket given a good work ethic and solid fundamentals. “Other Way” should definitely be on your summer playlist.”

“A beautifully crafted song, that inspires hope in your soul. So many times a song about strength, leaves me feeling closed and angry. Defensive. Andrea’s song does the opposite. It fills me with strength, while remaining open and loving. Hopeful. Like believing the sun will rise tomorrow, and getting up early to see it happen. A new fresh start, on a new fresh day… Andrea possesses the unique gift of being able to pull out honest emotions, and place them into a beautiful song. A healing and guiding voice, in a confusing world.”
– Susan Varnes-Newland, Seattle Wave Radio (May 25, 2018)

Her songs were recently licensed with the Discovery Network (including partners such as the Oprah Winfrey Network and TLC), the PBS Series “Road Trip Nation”, and with Magical Elves, the production company behind shows such as “Top Chef”.

“Ok seriously though, this girl is amazing and I can’t wait to see where she goes in the future with her career. I mean, when she moved to Seattle, WA and started performing she was named Seattle’s “indie pop sweetheart”. I’m hoping to see her really bloom into a serious power in the music industry. With her humble, hardworking attitude she is bound to be a huge success! Like Dave said, she’s on the precipice of greatness.” – JoeJoe Keys, Indie Music Reviews (January 02, 2018)
“That light shines brightly for Andrea, who admires and adores her fans. It is without any of this that Andrea would not be the person she is now. “Inner Fire”, is a track that is simply upbeat and catchy, which keeps it all moving together, so that it becomes danceable, and rather listenable more than just one time around, but many more times indeed.”
– Natalie Perez, Skope Magazine (September 19, 2017)
“Andrea Desmond. Remember that name…An-dre-a Des-mond. Everything about Andrea and her music just screams out pop star.
Everything about Andrea and her music just screams out pop star. She developed her sound and writing style with producer Martin Feveyear (Presidents of the United States of America, Kings of Leon, Mudhoney). Andrea possesses a B.A. in Music with an emphasis in Composition so it’s no wonder she is writing amazing songs. And that’s the thing, this isn’t her only great song. If you go to her Youtube Channel you can find many other songs as well as live performances. Let’s just say this girl is versatile!
I could write thousands of words about her new single “Inner Fire”, but for the purpose of this review I have to make it much shorter. Mostly what I can tell you is that if you are into positive pop music that is well written and well produced, then you need to check out this single. Probably one of my favorite things about the song and Andrea’s music is that even though it’s well produced her voice always sounds very organic and natural.” JoeJoe Keys, Indie Music Reviews (October 21, 2017)
“Known for great vocals and capturing melodies, Andrea promises that her new sound will strikingly deliver magnificent and captivating feelings to her fans. Described as a budding talent, music analyst says that the music world should prepare for a big star. Andrea is also a talented songwriter and a great performer, electrifying the crowd with her melodic voice.”
– NBC Right Now (September 30, 2017)
“Inner Fire” was recently released as a teaser to promote the premiere on October 1st, but it’s already heating up as it has had some time to marinate. We’d like to give you a sneak preview of what’s yet to come and we want you to be the first. Listen, enjoy, and fall in love with Andrea Desmond.”
- Harrison Morgan, Vents Magazine (September 27, 2017)
“The song is extremely smooth and showcases Andrea Desmond’s strong vocal abilities. The instrumental is ethereal and sure to take listeners to another world. ”
– The Fresh Committee Blog (October 28th, 2017)
“If she just so happened to write all these songs well she could be bigger than any of us realize at the moment. Let me go on record and say Andrea Desmond is one artist to watch. It’s impressive music that’s easy to groove to, highly marketable, uplifting and extremely entertaining. The writing and singing abilities of Desmond are rock solid and the melodies and harmonies are well crafted and catchy. Last but not least the vocal presence from Desmond just makes the whole thing work by just being herself.”
– Cyrus Rhodes, The Muse’s Muse (Jan 23, 2014)
“So who is Desmond anyway? In my own words she’s a singer/songwriter who draws on life’s experiences from both the interior and exterior vantage point. Her musical narrative and striking lyrics deliver sincere and genuine vocal performances.
One thing that impressed me the most is the sheer impassioned pop vibe one gets.. Desmond has a strong visual and her voice sounds as if she is classically trained. She also plays piano.. Kudos goes out to the amazing songwriting. I always said you can sell what you don’t truly believe, here Desmond captures lighting in a bottle that will ring true not only for older more experienced listeners but new ones as well… Only an experienced artist armed with an honest, genuine, sincere approach can pull it off.”
– RJ Frometa, Vents Magazine (Feb 25, 2014)
“The more I listened the more it feels as if Desmond is one of those ‘under the radar’ artists that has a lot of potential… I want someone like Andrea Desmond to sing me a timeless melody – it’s that simple and real not overly synthetic built upon a house of cards. Her voice and musical signature are to say the least magnificent and will do the job nicely. The potential is indeed palpable, and that low-key modesty of Desmond speaks for itself.”
– Michael Morrison, Music Emissions (Feb 07, 2014)
“In my mind she is a musical triple threat. She’s got a good look, she can write music/play piano, and she’s a great singer. Like I had mentioned its impressive how well Her vocals at times shift from classical to even soulful. This reminds me of Adele, Lily Allen, Jessie J. and Imagine Dragons. Desmond is a captivating composer and singer within her own right.”
– Andrew Weiss, Music News Nashville (Feb 26, 2014)
“After listening it’s evident to me Andrea’s talents with her band are far beyond what I imagined or even expected. She has a powerful writing style and voice and look that many people will gravitate towards.”
– Travis Ford, Rock N’ Roll View (Jan 29, 2014)
“All tracks to me are thoughtful and a stellar performance-driven pop that are wonderfully powerful in nature. Rest assured Andrea Desmond is making her presence known in an otherwise commercial myriad of soulless clutter. Perfect pacing, intriguing compositions and a stellar voice have her scoring big here with me! 5/5 Stars”
– Natalie Brennan, Skope Entertainment Inc (Jan 28, 2014)
“She seems a likeable, genuine, and all around kindhearted person. Sometimes a good heart and a nice voice is all it takes to reach the next level. Her future is bright and full of potential.”
