Andreya Triana

On Counter

An experimental and self-taught singer and songwriter originally hailing from South East London, Andreya Triana grew up submerged in a multicultural atmosphere. A unique vocalist, Andreya began singing at the tender age of 7, taking influence from the sights and sounds of inner-city London. Her early love and passion for music would see her locked in her bedroom for hours on end writing poetry, making homemade mix tapes and recording tracks - utilizing two battered cassette decks to record harmonies.

Her early love of improvisation would warp and change over the years, hugely influencing her 'Freeflo Sessions' - a hypnotic one woman show using a sampler to loop vocals, percussive sounds and beats live. To date she has taken her Freeflo Sessions worldwide, dazzling audiences far and wide with her cutting edge and soulful performances. 2006 saw her selected from thousands to take part in the Red Bull Music Academy in Australia, where she further developed her style for improvisation and secured links with some of the best producers and musicians on the music scene. Multiple collaborations ensued daily at the Academy, including 'Tea Leaf Dancers' a collaboration with now-legendary electronic muscian and producer Flying Lotus (released on Warp Records). The track was hailed as a classic, getting rave reviews from Benji B and Gilles Peterson while getting airplay on Annie Mac's Radio One show. It was this song that also caught the attention of Ninja Tune stalwart Bonobo.

In 2009 Triana’s career took another upturn when she toured the U.S and Canada with the Bonobo live band, played the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury, and secured a three album deal with Ninja Tune. Her debut album, ‘Lost Where I Belong,’ was released in 2010 to rapturous praise. Produced by Bonobo and imbued with his cinematic, future-beat magic, it also featured two co-writes with fellow Ninja artist Fink.

Since then, Andreya’s been working intensively on both sides of the Atlantic, writing her sophomore album, which is due for release in 2013. She’s planning some intimate gigs during the remainder of 2012, ahead of a 4-track EP which will be released as a taster for the album.

Andreya Triana has truly come into her own as a songwriter and performer, travelling across the world to play everywhere from Poland and the Isle of Wight through the U.S. to Switzerland, where she supported Erykah Badu. Her U.S writing partners include Marc Nelkin, Carl Ryden, Rex Rideout, Juanita Stokes and Blac Elvis, and in the UK she’s been holed up with Rick Nowles, Jimmy Hogarth, Alan Nglish and Dee Adam. Such an illustrious list of collaborators is testament to her own abilities as a writer.

Rapidly approaching the peak of her powers, great things can be expected from Andreya Triana in the months and years to come.
