Album Notes
All songs written and produced by Andrea Stray.
Not feeling the need to stick to any one genre, Andrea Stray skirts the darker edges of Americana and flirts with Indie Noir. She creates a haunting atmosphere with Into Blue
The 5-Song EP reveals the blue undercurrents of attraction and the ever dark mystery of love.

The title track , “Into Blue” has a distorted guitar intro that weaves in and out of the song. Adding cello and piano Stray describes the intent, “I wanted the music to feel like it is creeping up on you, like the way love or lust does.

Stray wrote “Don’t Cry” for a friend that she lost awhile ago. The song is about the friend trying to come to terms with his place in life and Stray trying to convince him to see some light. Scotty Sander's pedal steel weaves in and out.

I wanted "Little Word" to feel like being at a a late night jazz club,” she explained. “Bending the guitar strings creates a deep slinky mood and J.T.’s electric guitar solo feels kind of sexy, yet lonely.” She adds, "I was thinking about how the mysterious little word "love" can cause such a big sensation."

"Forgive and Forget" starts out with a dissonant riff on the guitar, just like how some relationships can be a little dissonant. "Sometimes we are challenged to embrace that old adage, Forgive and Forget. This song reveals how two people can become tangled up in their own world of elusive boundaries. 'Who's going to play that part in your twisted dream/ It's all so easy in the dark when it's just you and me.'

"You're the Kind" describes how sometimes people don't want to see that they are with the wrong person. "You came back like a hurricane/ told me to hold on to you again./ Somehow you made it seem alright, but I couldn’t see the wreckage in the dark of the night."

Stray recorded Into Blue in Nashville. "I like recording with everyone playing together and minimal overdubs. It just feel right to me to capture the way the song comes alive. I always like creating moods and I hope I was able to achieve that with these songs."

Andrea Stray lives in Nashville TN and San Francisco CA. Her main instruments are guitar and piano. Her music has been described as Folk Rock with a dash of Americana and Indie Noir. Andrea lived in many different places while growing up including Tucson, the Rocky Mountains and the foggy shores of California. Especially drawn to Tucson where the open spaces and mystery of the desert have shown up in her songs. She learned to play guitar on her father's old Gibson guitar and has written songs most of her life. She has played with several bay area bands and likes to work with other musicians on their projects whenever she can. She performs live with a full band or sometimes as a duo.
