Philadelphia, PA: Philadelphia-based folk singer/songwriter Andrea Nardello will be releasing her new EP Human on August 17th through Noble Steed Music. This new EP follows her 2016 release Fire, and 2014’s Echo.
Listen to “Honey Whiskey” off the EP
About the EP, Nardello says, “Life is hard. We love. We lose. We get stuck. Loved ones die. People overcome unthinkable circumstances. For me, “Human” is a collection of songs that explores vulnerable topics. Loving someone when they are broken. Striving to challenge yourself when you are stuck. The final stages of life and all that is unknown. It is truly a soundtrack of my life and the people in it. I always get nervous before releasing new music and my only hope is that anyone who listens can connect to these songs in some special way.”
She also added the following about the first single, ‘Honey Whiskey:’ “Last April, my Father-in-Law passed away. It was sudden and quick and we were all devastated. Tommy’s passing was peaceful, with his loved ones by his side. He was a great man and he was strong and sweet like honey whiskey. I guess you could say this song is a true story. I don’t know what happens after we die. I only hope we all get to see each other again.”
Philly’s Andrea Nardello has garnered favorable comparisons to Melissa Etheridge and Shawn Colvin for melding pop songwriting smarts with a confessional and literate songwriting style, exploring relationships, romance, and her family life. Nardello’s refined accessibility draws from folk, rock, soul, and even the swagger of hip-hop. She can tug at your heartstrings with her softer tunes and get you dancing on your feet with her upbeat songs and powerful voice. Fans ride an unforgettable emotional roller coaster during her live shows.
Nardello has been busy touring, opening for Colbie Caillat, Brandi Carlile, Tony Lucca, Gabe Dixon, Ron Pope, Emerson Hart of Tonic Fame, and Tim Reynolds of The Dave Matthews Band. After releasing ECHO, Nardello won the prestigious Philadelphia Songwriter’s Project Contest and won Tri-State Indie’s “Acoustic Artist Of The Year.” Her songs, “Leave The Light On” and “Home To Me” each won WSTW’s Award for Folk Song Of The Year.
Nardello also spends time fundraising for important causes like The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and The MILE (Music Is Love Exchange). Nardello completed two service trips to Guatemala in support of the MILE. The MILE is a network of artists, musicians, and music lovers that bring positivity and change to the lives of disadvantaged and underserved children, strengthening families and communities both in the U.S. and abroad. Nardello is always willing to help, offer her time and believes that music is a universal language that helps heal and connects us all.
