Andrea Echeverri of Aterciopelados
Andrea Echeverri, lead singer of Aterciopelados will release an intimate acoustic session EP with her band featuring solo material and some of Aterciopelados’ best known hits. Grammy-nominated Latin rock icon Echeverri and her band Aterciopelados will release a special live acoustic session EP exclusively on iTunes on December 20. Recorded this past summer in the iTunes studio, the session features some of Aterciopelados’ biggest hits (“El Album”, “Pipa de la Paz”) as well as fan favorites from Andrea Echeverri’s recently-released solo album, including “A eme O” and “Amortiguador.” Andrea Echeverri’s single “Amortiguador” a Discovery Download earlier this year, became iTunes’ most successful Discovery Download to date.
Andrea Echeverri’s self-titled solo debut recently received a Latin Grammy nomination in the “Best Female Pop Vocal Album” category. The album was released by Nacional Records, the new ADA/Warner Music Group-distributed label. Best known as the frontwoman for acclaimed Colombian Latin alternative band Aterciopelados, Andrea Echeverri has captivated audiences with her brand of feminism. After the critical and commercial success of "Gozo Poderoso," which landed Aterciopelados on the Top 10 of the Billboard Top Latin Albums Sales Chart as well as a coveted appearance on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Echeverri took time off for the birth of her first child Milagros, who has become a new point of artistic inspiration. The result is the self-titled album “Andrea Echeverri,”Andrea’s first solo release. The disc was produced by Hector Buitrago from Aterciopelados and mixed by Thom Russo (Juanes, Kinky, Johnny Cash); it features a remix from Richard Blair (Sidestepper).
Following is Andrea Echeverri and Aterciopelados “Live” EP tracklisting:
