Pop singer-songwriter Andrea released her heartbreak ballad “I Don’t Know Your Name” with a new music video. Receiving nearly 14K views in its first 12 hours of release, the track comes as a follow-up to her debut release “I Know,” an electro-pop song that also shows off Andrea’s R&B influences. “I Don’t Know Your Name” is the story of seeing a lost love and fiercely denying the importance of that relationship as the way to cope with the sorrow. The track is gorgeously written and carefully produced.

“With ‘I Don’t Know Your Name’ I try to express the anguish of the first time you see again the love who broke your heart,” says Andrea. “The vocal improvisation in the song is intended to echo the cry of grief and suffering of heartbreak. We’ve all been through that loss, I just hope my music can help comfort the lonely.” As Jammerzine so eloquently states in their review of the track, “Andrea has that road worn voice that is also as angelic, yet showing the cracks in the heart when she sings…. to mix that with a wonderfully subdued and minimalist track such as ‘I Don’t Know Your Name’, you get that magic that most artists try to reach.” (Jammerzine)

With only one other release under her belt, Andrea is already demonstrating the confidence and vocal maturity of a deeply experienced and professional musician. Her last single “I Know” was referred to as “a song that could stand on the strength of Andrea’s vocal performance, but instead, it embellishes them with production that conveys the feelings the vocals do.” (BlackPlastic)

After living in Harlem as a child, Andrea carried the R&B, gospel, and soul influences back with her to Macedonia. With such a culturally rich background, Andrea is proudly a one-of-a-kind artist. “I am unapologetically myself – I will chart my own path regardless of the expectations placed on me or whether there is a defined path to success,” says Andrea. “I Don’t Know Your Name” creates a clear vision of the artist Andrea is blossoming into and sets a sure precedent of the quality of music that fans can continue to expect from her. Fans can look forward to a dance-edm remix of the new single in early January.

Music is Universal. The words Skopje and Macedonia rarely arise when you speak of modern music. In fact, no artist has reached popular success outside the borders of the former Yugoslavia. Andrea is on a different journey than any before her. Her overarching goal is to transform her audience through the power of music — to help them discover who they are. Andrea’s voice touches your soul.
