Besides jamming out on stage, Andrea’s got nearly two decades under her belt teaching music lessons and coaching bands. She even became a Senior Program Director at a nonprofit, crafting epic workshops and camps to empower and amplify girls and non-binary youth through the power of music! Austin’s her turf via Nashville, and beyond the beats, you can catch her championing artists in her local scene, diving into activism & community projects, and shooting pool with pals.
