Free Music Thursdays: Andrea Sorum - The Warming House4001 Bryant Ave South Minneapolis,MN
05/24/2018 9:00 PM - 05/24/2018 11:00 PM
A Minneapolis based artist, Andrea Sorum’s voice and songs are vulnerable, lilting, uplifting and genre-blending.
She was born to two rural pastors and an upright piano. Music was her first language and quickly became her creative outlet, spending hour in her room singing her poetic creations into a small cassette recorder. After completing her undergrad as a vocal and piano major she ventured to India where she volunteered with a nonprofit and recorded a full-length fusion album that was never released in the U.S. After returning to Minnesota she played in a couple bands before eventually retiring the guitar and songwriting to focus on raising a family. After the birth of her second son her mind again exploded with creative ideas. Her 2016 album, “American Dreams,” is full of the maternal love and energetic playfulness she has found as a parent. Now a single mom, a piano teacher and accompanist, she performs frequently in the Twin Cities and neighboring communities.
