Andrea Lake is a singer songwriter who grew up on re-wilded land in the countryside of Southern Ontario and currently resides in Montreal. Her acoustic sound reflects influences of pop, folk, finger style guitar and neo-soul. Andrea sings the gamut of the human experience, often faith in the phoenix rising in love, friendship, and the world. Her love of nature is ever present. Multi instrumentalist Delorca calls her "a craftswoman of delicate songs and a voice that sings the Canadian landscape."
Born into a family of musicians, Andrea began music education before the age of five in recorder and then piano and soon moved on to voice. Former San Francisco opera singer Deborah Skoggard discovered and mentored her in her teens during a time when she regularly performed as a singer. She also discovered the guitar at this time, pursuing classical as well as acoustic styles.
Andrea lived in Australia, New Zealand, France and Japan while completing a degree in philosophy and studying yoga. She worked as a college instructor in critical thinking while still teaching yoga. During this time her drive to continue to pursue guitar and learn songwriting crystallized. She studied with finger style guitar teachers and mentors, and especially benefitted from enrolling in a songwriters program at Berklee Online with Berklee College of Music.
Andrea is currently co-writing with numerous musicians in the United States and Canada, writing her own songs and playing shows in Montreal and beyond. She is soon to be recording in both Montreal and Nashville while still studying at Berklee Online. Andrea continues to teach yoga.
