ONE PLUS ONE EQUALS US – 2021
Andee has returned with a fresh approach to her sound after overcoming a dark period in her life. She talks about her journey with bipolar disorder and its challenges in the book “Mes tempêtes intérieures” by Vanessa Beaulieu released in 2018. Her personal and artistic journey led her in new sonic directions for newest LP One Plus One Equals Us with the help of producers Hill Kourkoutis, Emery Taylor, Herag Sanbalian, Warne Livesey and her husband Kori Kameda who produced her song “The Sea”. One Plus One Equals Us also brought us a very special collaboration with Toronto singer-songwriter and rapper Stacey Kay on the explosive track “Your Last Kiss”.
“These new songs are definitely about personal experiences that affected me like nothing I had been through before,” Andee says. Ultimately, I wanted to expose a very vulnerable side of myself to talk about hopelessness, mental despair, growth, euphoria, resilience and, of course, love.” One Plus One Equals Us was released on March 26th 2021 under Coalition Music Records.
Amongst the biggest influences of the bilingual French-Canadian powerhouse singer are Tina Turner, Florence and The Machine and Alicia Keys that she admires for their intensity and their distinctive vocal qualities.
