You have to know the rules in order to break them. Andrea Superstein knows the rules. And she breaks them. Subtly infusing electro, indie and other unexpected elements, she as Tom Harrison, music critic for the Vancouver Province, said, is “redefining jazz.” Think Amy Winehouse meets Portishead.
Superstein’s upcoming offering, “Worlds Apart” shows her true talents as vocalist, composer and arranger. With jazz luminary Elizabeth Shepherd as producer and co-arranger, the new record brings Superstein’s fresh, modern ideas to the forefront, in an impressive 3 languages. It showcases powerful vocals exemplifying both the gentle and the strong, the light and the dark. They lithely navigate the colours of the emotional spectrum from despair to joy, deep blues to pop confection, often in the same song. She breathes the here-and-now into the classics, while brushing authenticity into every note of every new song she writes.
Superstein owns every stage she helms, commands every room she plays. She conducts an unforgettable musical experience with a combination of humour, razor-sharp wit, a gift for the gab, and a sincere connection with her audience. When you go to a Superstein show, you feel as if she’s singing just to you—and all of the new friends in the audience you’ve just made. You’ll be smiling and singing long after the lights—or the sun—have come up.
