Andrea Cruz is one of the most promising artists emerging from Puerto Rico’s independent music scene in recent years.
On her impressive debut, “Tejido de Laurel” (2017), Andrea’s stripped down and gentle presence belie a powerful and expressive voice, at once effortless and highly trained. “Véngole” is Cruz’s newest single, featuring Guatemalan singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno. It is the first in a series of songs that will lead into her next album.
2019 is proving to be an exciting time for fans of Andrea Cruz. A single with electronic-pop duo Los Wálters, “Al Revés“, was revealed on Valentine’s Day, giving listeners ample proof that Andrea could pull off a pop-crossover should she choose to move beyond the more traditional folk instrumentation that currently defines her work.
And more recently, NPR’s beloved All Songs Considered program shared a live performance of the artist as part of their popular Tiny Desk Concert video series.
