SINGLE REVIEW: INNER FIRE BY ANDREA DESMOND
SEPTEMBER 27, 2017
Years can go by waiting for your chance, for the opportune time for all of your patience to pay off. Andrea Desmond decided enough was enough. She took a bold and courageous leap that all who aspire to follow their heart must do. All the while, she developed her sound and writing style to match what’s closest to her very own unique sound. From being a piano/vocal teacher and songwriting coach, to an assistant to a composer working on an upcoming PBS TV show, she has been building a musical foundation within LA. For “Inner Fire”, she worked particularly close with SR (who has been helping Randy Jackson on projects), and songwriter for Warner Natalia Bortolotti. Also, with influences like: Sia, Ellie Goulding, and Adele, you can infer what type of track it might be without even listening to it.
With the aforementioned, we can infer this is going to be a very vocally-centered track with profound lyrics that take you beyond face value. We’d love to point out Andrea’s positive attitude, her sultry sounds, conscious lyrics and high-energy stage presence, her pure soul is exposed and shown to the world. When you hear her for the first time, you get a sense of hope in a time of despair, a sense of energy when one feels drained, and a sense of love when one feels alone. Her music, along with her sweet and compassionate smile, combined with her angelic voice, will remind you that there is still some good left in this world, the good times are yet to come. “Inner Fire” was recently released as a teaser to promote the premiere on October 1st, but it’s already heating up as it has had some time to marinate. We’d like to give you a sneak preview of what’s yet to come and we want you to be the first. Listen, enjoy, and fall in love with Andrea Desmond.
