Andrea Ramolo, triple threat

The Shadows and the CracksAndrea Ramolo is a great example of the kind of artist that gives Canadian roots musicians a good name. She is articulate, highly educated, versatile, bold, funny, talented, shrewd, determined and in stereotypical Canadian fashion, well-mannered, even sweetly humble.

She’s got a great work ethic, to boot: Andrea Ramolo is notorious for her incredible touring schedule, logging 300-400 shows over the past two years with her one-man-band, Jason Skiendziel. She’s also blessed with mesmerizing looks. Plus, she’s an experienced actor and she does a mean tap-dance!

All of which might make it easy to overlook her best quality of all: she sings wonderful self-penned songs with a tough n’ tender goose-bump-inducing voice.

Andrea Ramolo dropped by The Woodshed and proved she’s a triple threat in lucky Episode 13 of The Woodshed Sessions.

On Wednesday, March 30, Andrea releases her second solo CD, The Shadows and the Cracks with a show at Toronto’s The Great Hall.
