  1. Vibe

  3. Dock of the Bay (cover)
Andrea Lee Benedick was born to sing and entertain. While her mother was preparing for birth, her father would sing to her belly and serenade Andrea as an unborn child. When she entered the world she was the first child of three to run around their tree farm in a small town in Kansas, where she was exposed not only to live guitar and singing every day, but also good work ethics and a positive life outlook. By age five she was singing publicly, while her father accompanied her on guitar. Her driven and strong passion has helped her with success in many areas in entertainment and the arts.
At age 10, Andrea was able to join her school orchestra, and she started learning violin skills. Also that year she joined a dance company studying movement to classical, jazz, pop, ragtime, and many other musical genres through ballet, tap, jazz, and hip-hop, which she continues to this day. The next year, at age 11, concert band was available to her, and trumpet was added to her repertoire. Choir and vocal ensembles where her favorite groups, and when any extra music groups were offered, she was always directly involved. Harmony came naturally to Andrea at a very young age. With the combination of a sharp harmonic ear and written music training, she created a sold foundation for aspirations toward a music career.
In the latter part of high school, after many awards from regional and state contests, Andrea did the Junior Miss Scholarship Competition. She was named her county’s Jr. Miss and went on to receive the honor of Kansas Jr. Miss in 1999. This gave her the opportunity to compete on the nationally televised America’s Junior Miss Program where she learned many valuable techniques for entertaining on television.
Because college was a financial option, Andrea decided to join the Fine Arts Department at The University of Kansas. Her choice to expand her visual art techniques was to strengthen her right brain and directly apply the creativity to her music. During her college days, she was singing in a duo with a male vocalist and guitarist, hosting open mics and playing at local coffee shops. This is the point where Andrea started expressing her own soulful words in songs she wrote on the guitar. Within the year, she started recording in a friend’s home studio and had her first recording session, completing 12 original songs.
At age 19, Andrea Lee moved to Eugene, Oregon where she lived for five years. She recorded a second studio album, got involved with several local hip-hop and rock bands and also widely spread her solo acoustic shows. Eugene Weekly quoted her as being ‘a tiny cutie with a beautifully huge voice’. Now at age 26 she has moved back to Kansas for a brief time to fully concentrate in her personal recording studio to complete her demo disc. With over 50 original songs, and scheduled shows throughout the year, Andrea has created a solid following not only in Oregon, but also though out Kansas and the mid-west.

I can feel the vibe, so much soul it sets my mind to wandering, pondering, all the years that I spent squandering time in a vibe-less world. Nicely done...superb vocals and expression in thst one, love the skins, and the mood it sets. ~~Matt
