Andra Cilliers grew up in Swakopmund, a small town squashed between the ice-cold Atlantic Ocean and the mystical Namib Desert before moving to South Africa at the end of 2007.
Since then she has independently recorded two solo albums, extensively toured South Africa, Namibia and Botswana; repeatedly performed at all the major SA festivals (oppikoppi, KKNK, Aardklop, Splashy Fen, Up the Creek, White Mountain Folk Festival, Innibos, Rise&Shine Fest, Park Acoustics, STRAB in Mozambique…) ; and supported the world-famous Sarah Bettens (K’s Choice) on a 10 day sold out European tour.
“This singer/songwriter presents something a little different to what listeners of contemporary music are used to. Her haunting sound and innovative melodies are sheer genius and leave you wanting more. A blend of rock and folk sounds, this is a must-see performance. “ – CUE Newspaper – 2014 Fringe in a Flash Review
Andra is well known for her passionate performances and has been compared to artists like Janis Joplin, Tom Waits, Marianne Faithful, and Eddie Vedder, but she humbly states:
“I’m just telling stories – attaching the only sounds I know how to make.”
