Andrea Daly

You’re a good listener… Come to a show so I can sing to you."

Andrea is a composer, songwriter and singer based in Brooklyn, NY.

Her voice garners comparisons to Sara Bareilles and Norah Jones, but her multi-genre musical output is a melting pot of influences, from indie artists Regina Spektor and Ben Folds to jazz, classical, and theater composers Duke Ellington, Aaron Copland, Ahrens & Flaherty and Stephen Schwartz.

Andrea has participated as both a pop and theater writer in the Goodspeed Musicals Writers’ Colony in Connecticut, and the Johnny Mercer Songwriters Project in Chicago, with master teachers Craig Carnelia, Andrew Lippa, and Lari White.

In 2013 she signed a publishing contract with Warner/Chappell Music, and currently writes for both herself and other artists. Andrea also performs original songs at New York venues including Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, New World Stages, and Lincoln Center’s Bruno Walter Auditorium, and her new musical Legendale (with Jeff Bienstock, bookwriter/lyricist) is in progress with a reading planned for fall 2014.

Daly received her B.A. in music from Kenyon College and graduated summa cum laude with highest honors and the David B. Perry Prize in music. This fall she will complete her PhD at Stony Brook University in New York, where she has been honored both with the President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching for her work teaching undergraduate musicianship and analysis, and with Stony Brook’s prestigious five-year Graduate Council Fellowship.
