At 17 years of age, Western Canada’s Andrea Bilawich possesses a depth and honesty to her work that extends far beyond her years. A songwriter at age eight, Bilawich took up the guitar as a pre-teen and wrote “We Will Remember,” a tribute to South African leader Nelson Mandela, following his passing in 2013. From there, her star has only continued to climb higher.
In early 2018, Bilawich released her debut EP, Sidewalk Chalk, followed by a new single, “Now or Never,” earlier this year. Her heart-on-sleeve approach to writing will no doubt draw comparisons to Adele and Sara Bareilles, among others, and the future looks nothing but bright for this young talent.
