Singer-songwriter to perform at Rivers Edge

YORKVILLE, Ill. — Local singer-songwriter Andrea Dawn will perform an intimate concert Friday, Feb. 1 at the newly opened Rivers Edge Theatre in downtown Yorkville, Ill. The show will also feature local songwriters Ben Thomas and Pat Moynihan.

Doors open at 7:15 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased either in advance or at the door. The show is for all ages.

The performance comes on the heels of Andrea’s new full-length album, “Theories of How We Can Be Friends,” on Waterloo Sunset Records. The record was mixed and mastered by Brian Zieske (The Academy Is, The Hush Sound), and this past summer, Andrea and her band embarked on a 12-date U.S. Tour to support the record, including shows in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Austin, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland.

Andrea was inspired by the wave of female songwriters of the mid 1990s (Jewel, Sarah McLachlan, Alanis Morissette and Fiona Apple) and began writing her own songs at age 10. Since then, she has played across Chicago and the U.S. In 2008, she was voted one of Illinois Entertainer’s “Best of Around Hear,” and in 2009 she won the grand prize for Backthird Audio’s Songwriter Showcase.
