I am here. (2011)

I had originally set out to record an album with my cousin Bryan who passed away in February of 2010. I am here, the song and the album, are dedicated to him. Andrea Szirbik: Music (written and arranged), vocals, acoustic guitar, ukulele, household percussion, keyboard and piano (except where noted below) Fancier instrument parts were created/added in by the amazing musicians who played them: Joe Harding, bass guitar: i am here, things to share; Jon Briggs, banjo: i am here; Matt Young, mandolin: i am here, puddle jumper; Mike Thornhill, drums: no fear, things to share; Kevin Weiler, piano: no fear, rosemary (and thanks to Kevin and Sarah for letting me invade your house for piano recording!); Chris Guzikowki, electric guitar: no fear, rosemary, shine and things to share; Peter Connell: lead acoustic guitar: springtime, things to share; Rebecca Shelly: cover art and CD design. For more information about the final version of this album, check out www.ListenToAndrea.com

who i am (2012)

this album embodies my genre "folk with a twist." i finally started experimenting with harmonies and more percussion, and recorded a couple of songs in Spanish as well. the finished album will have two bonus tracks and will be re-mixed and mastered. all songs written, arranged and performed by andrea szirbik. many thanks to: rebecca shelly (cover art) matt young (mandolin) sam harding (drums, congas) amari thornton (child vocals) kevin masse (percussion assistance) joseph k murphy (post production excellence)

BIOGRAPHY

I am a singer-songwriter in Dover, NH. I've been singing pretty much as long as I have been able to talk and grew up playing instruments and singing duets with my mom. Although I had been writing and performing my original songs since around 2002, RPM 2011 was my first time recording them. For more info about me check out my website below!
