Andrea Schroeder (Germany)

Andrea Schroeder

Current album: ‘Void’ (Glitterhouse, August 2016)

Andrea Schroeder is an exceptional phenomenon of German singers whose voice is as riveting as her poetic, often melancholic lyrics. After playing countless sold out shows, her third album ‚Void‘ was released in August 2016, followed by an extensive tour in winter 2016. In January 2017 she collaborated with Mick Harvey on his song ‘Ich Liebe Dich … Ich Dich Auch Nicht‘, a German version of ‘Je T’Aime… Moi Non Plus‘.

Not only with her current album ‘Void’ but also with her two previous albums ‘Where The Wild Oceans End’ (2014) and ‘Blackbird’ (2013) the Berlin based singer thrilled both music critics and feuilleton. The Rolling Stone even described her second record as a ‘massive album full of drama and wistfulness’, ranking it ‘somewhere between Leonard Cohen, Scott Walker, Nick Cave and Nico’.

While ‘Where The Wild Oceans End’ was produced by Walkabout’s mastermind Chris Eckman, the singer worked with Ulf Ivarsson (Thåström, Sivert Höyem) and Jesper Lehmkuhl for ‘Void’. It was mixed by Victor Van Vugt who already worked with Nick Cave, Sonic Youth, P.J. Harvey, Einstürzende Neubauten or Mick Harvey in the past. Recorded in Berlin and Stockholm in early 2016, the album not only features her band (Jesper Lehmkuhl, Dave Allen, Catherine Graindorge, Mike Strauss and Maurizio Vitale) but also special guests like Kristof Hahn (Swans) and Pelle Ossler (Ossler, Thåström, Sällskapet).

Press commentaries

‘Andrea Schroeder sounds like an evening prayer and there’s nobody in Germany who sounds like that – a Hildegard Knef of wistfulness, feather boa around her shoulder, supported by a band that heavyly and straddle-legged lays a ground Schroeder can stride across.‘ – Rolling Stone, 4/5 for Void

‘A terrific voice, hypnotic sounds of extreme beauty.’ – In Viaggio
