"Andria’s clear, pure and sweet toned voice can soothe the most troubled heart" - Sarah Fenwick, CNR
Andria Antoniou, is a London-based vocalist of jazz, Latin music and Greek Retro music. Born in a musical family in the small island of Cyprus, Andria started to develop a strong interest and enthusiasm in the performing arts since she was a little girl. Her immersion into different styles of music from an early age and her bilingual upbringing have led her to what she is as a performer; an amalgam of musics from different parts of the world expressed in different languages.
Andria has performed in London, Athens, Cyprus, Colombia and Cuba. Some of the most notable recent collaborations she had was with the Greek composer George Hatzinasios, the band ‘Classico Latino’, the award-winning Cuban violinist Omar Puente, the Brazilian musician Mario Bakuna, the Argentinian musician Roman Gomez, and the West End Musical Director, Greg Arrowsmith. Having had the opportunity to perform and collaborate with these musicians has allowed Andria to develop her own sound - a luminous, warm, and versatile voice - which draws together elements of jazz, Latin and Greek retro music.
Andria has appeared at Cambridge Music Festival (UK), St’ James Church (UK), the Vortex (UK), the Forge (UK), Sarah’s Jazz Club (CY), Gialino Theatro (GR), Phoenix Artist Club (UK), Teatro Colon de Bogota (CO), amongst others.
Andria has recently released her first debut album with Roman Gomez entitled ‘Encuentro’ for which they have received second place at the LUKAS 2019 award in the category Jazz act of the year . The official London launch took place this October 2019. She also features as a guest on Classico Latino's latest album 'Havana Classics' recorded in the summer of 2018 at Egrem Studios in Cuba along with award-winning violinist Omar Puente.
Andria is also a passionate educator, vocal coach, piano teacher and founder of 'VoiceHub', a platform and community for new singers to find and develop their voice through a variety of workshops and private tuition. She is also a member of the British Voice Association. Read more here.
