Andra Day (born Cassandra Monique Batie) is from San Diego, California, where she studied singing at the School of Creative and Performing Arts. Cultivating soul, jazz, and R&B through her voice, she is able to tell her stories through captivating music and engaging performances. Her voice is best described by NPR's Katie Presley as having "Eartha Kitt's unflappable confidence, Amy Winehouse's effortless grasp of classic jazz, Billie Holiday's access to raw emotion, and Adele's range and pop sensibility."
Andra has recently performed a number of performances, including a duet with Ellie Goulding at the 2016 Grammy's, showcasing her talent at the Bonnaroo's and Essence's festivals, as well as being nominated for: two Grammy's (Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance for "Rise Up"), three BET Awards (Best New Artist, Best R&B/Pop Artist, and the Centric Award), and the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding New Artist.
Andra begins her "Cheers to the Fall" US/Canadian tour in November 2016. Tickets are available on her website here.
