Theresa Andersson

Photo By Miranda Penn Turin

It’s a little unfair, because Theresa Andersson is half Swedish, which means there’s virtually no way that I won’t like her. But, I only noticed this fact after I listened to her music for a few minutes and already decided I liked the sweet indie pop coming out of my speakers, so bias averted. The New Orleans performer grew up on a wool spinnery in Sweden. She recorded all of her album, Hummingbird, Go! in her kitchen and regularly recreates it for a live audience. My tiny indie soul is in multi-instrumental heaven. Check out an mp3 and tons of regional dates below.

I have to say, her indie pop sound are a great driving factor for her. Her music is simply to die for!

In regards to recording everything in her kitchen, you have to check out her videos! I had no idea what she actually was like until I watched one of those videos. My personal favorite is Birds Fly Away: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMXqn42AykM

As well, I also think that Theresa does a great job at telling a story through her music.

I hope that you got a chance to see Theresa at one of those dates!
