Andrea Sorum:

Andrea Sorum was born to two rural pastors and an upright piano. Music was her first language and quickly became her creative outlet as a young girl. Modeling her heroes Jewel and Joni Mitchell, she began her song-craft as a pre-teen, spending hours in her room singing her poetic creations into a small cassette recorder.  After completing her undergrad as a vocal and piano major, she narrowly escaped the temptation to accept a full ride to law school and ventured instead 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 marriage and family, so she thought. After the birth of her second son her mind again exploded with creative ideas. Her second album, “American Dreams,” will be released April 17 and is full of the maternal love and energetic playfulness she has found as a parent.  Now a single mom and a full-time piano teacher and accompanist, she performs in the Twin Cities and neighboring communities as often as she can.
