The band has released new music on a regular basis as a bass and drum duo since 2005 and 2023 marks the 20th anniversary of their debut album Diary Writing & Bedtime Stories which they released as a power trio with Kevin Kossowan.
Andrea House sings, she composes; she tells universal stories in music. She writes her own original songs and performs them; she pays homage to the master songwriters of the past. And she creates in a vast spectrum of styles from jazz and country to folk. Edmonton’s Andrea House is a stunningly, and mysteriously, multi-dimensional artist who lives and performs in the musical world — and steps across the frontier from time to time, theatre visa in hand, to communicate to audiences through bold narratives. Andrea’s star-dusted voice is richly multi-angled and many-sided, lush to ethereal. She has released three studio albums and has performed in Canada, the US, and even a few times very far from home. Musical highlights include performing at the C'mon Festival, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, and the Winspear Center for Music. Her album, Fire (2019), produced by Mitch Watkins, (Lyle Lovett, Leonard Cohen) can be found on Spotify and Apple Music.
