Andia is a singing hybrid drummer; a self released, self produced solo artist. With a  drum kit, a vocal mic and a laptop, In Your Dreams takes you to the next level in brave and creative new territory.  IYD is a combination of self- written conventional songs (with vocals) and a more experimental improvised live set.

Andia is formerly from London, and started playing drums around the age of 14. Since then she has played in and toured with many bands, most note-ably; a hard rock/metal band ‘Core’, and an emo-core indie band Consider. In Your Dreams is a deeper dive into an earlier side project started in the late 90’s, Tribal igenda, which explored improvisation with drums, synths, sample loops and digital hardware, as part of a duo.

Over 14 years ago Andia moved to Finland, Mikkeli, which meant a big change in her musical career. “I wanted to do something completely different; nothing wrong with the standards, but my saying is, if it’s been done before, I’m not interested in doing it again. I want to break new ground”.

With no musicians or singers readily available the artist decided to go solo. Andia has sung  backing vocals with previous bands, so adding main vocals to IYD was essential.

The result is In Your Dreams, a unique solo act backed with a unique  visual style. Andia- a trans artist-  as in every day, so as in  ‘In Your Dreams’ is also a celebration of gender, and its diversity.

IYD encourages and inspires everybody to be different, their true self and reach for their dreams.
