Andrea Szirbik: Folk with a Twist
folk frolics through country, pop, rock, bluegrass + more bouncing from silly to
sultry to serious and back! some might say that if Shakira, the Dixie Chicks,
Jewel, Ani DiFranco... and maybe also Dolly Parton got stuck in an elevator
together and then wrote some songs, that starts to describe my music. haha
regardless of all that, the best way to decide is to listen. and here you are.
Getting to know Andrea Szirbik
Andrea Szirbik describes her music as "folk with a twist." This Dover-based singer
songwriter frolics through country, pop, bluegrass and rock, her lilting vocals offering
up naked-hearted, sultry, sometimes downright silly lyrics that reveal with glassy
vulnerability her path through life and love. Her original compositions feature Szirbik on
vocals with guitar, ukulele, piano or banjo, at times flying solo, but often accompanied by
at least one member of the full band "Andrea's Spectacles" featuring: Matt Young
(bass, harmonies, mandolin), Dan Murphy (percussion), Kristin Nobel (fiddle, harmonies),
Scott Sutherland (mandolin, banjo) + sometimes also Joseph K Murphy (electric guitar).
The full band project has an upbeat (yes, danceable!) folk-rock-americana vibe. Chris
Hislop of The Spotlight writes "The music infiltrates your brain and you'll want to listen
again in the spirit of paying closer attention to the stories she weaves with such grace
throughout her songs."
