ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I have wanted to record an album of my songs from the time I was 12 years old. Now, almost 50 years later, it has happened! Although I grew up in Manhattan, I was privileged to spend my summers in rural Northeastern Pennsylvania, working on various farms and spending lots of time in the wilderness. My early song heroes and heroines were Hank Williams, Patsy Cline and later Neil Young and Linda Ronstadt.

In college, I was exposed to opera, which took me in a totally different direction. I had played in a country band called "Bluewater" in the NYC/NJ area, but too many nights of cigarette smoke filled bars began to take its toll on my operatic voice. I made the choice to pursue opera which I did for the next 20 years. Reviews include:

"Andrea Abushady (maiden name), coloring her steady mezzo-soprano with great restraint, proved uncommonly convincing in a trouser role as the poet Don Ramiro." By JAMES R. OESTREICH, New York Times.

"Andrea Abushady was a forceful Clotilda." (Norma with National Grand Opera at the Tilles Center, Brookville) By Peter Goodman, Newsday

"Mezzo soprano Andrea Abushady sang the role of Adalgisa. Her appearance was stunning. Her singing was most expressive, especially in the exquisite duet, 'Mira, O Norma,' in the second act." By J. Samra Shiepe, Brooklyn Spectator

Two children and many years later, I left the opera scene and returned to my singer-songwriter country roots. After traveling to various open mics with my singer-songwriter children, I thought, gee, I'd like to be doing this again. And so I did!
