ANDREA DESMOND- INNER FIRE (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO)
NOVEMBER 20, 2017
Andrea Desmond is an award-winning pop singer/songwriter based in Los Angeles, whose sultry sounds, conscious lyrics, positive attitude and high-energy stage presence radiate pure soul.
Andrea received training in songwriting under the guidance of her cousin Alan Menken, the Oscar-winning composer of such Disney classics as Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin.
Her new song Inner Fire, released October 1st, co-written with Natalia Bortolotti (Warner/Chappell) and produced by SR (Randy Jackson), is inspired by the sounds of Sia, Ellie Goulding and Adele, among others.
In 2013 Desmond was signed to indie label Spectra Records, where she released the EP Open Spaces, and was nominated for “Best Singer” in the Shorty Awards. Additionally, her song Run won Best Singer/Songwriter for the Akademia Music Awards and first place in the Eco Arts Awards: Songs of Freedom Competition.
Looking to further pursue her career, Andrea moved to Los Angeles in 2014, where she began performing frequently at the House of Blues, and ended up connecting with John ‘Sly’ Wilson, songwriter of Justin Timberlake’s Billboard hit “Suit and Tie” for advice on the industry.
When one hears Andrea for the first time, it takes the listener from despair and delivers them to a culture of hope. Her music, along with a sweet and compassionate smile, combined with her angelic voice, reminds the listener of good times while taking them to another dimension.
