Andrea Vasquez (Q&A)!!!

Hello Andrea, can you tell us a little bit about yourself before you became a country musician?I’ve always been surrounded by music and family working in the music industry in Los Angeles so I had an interest in the business for a very long time. I grew up in Virginia which is definitely where my love and interest in country music came from. I feel like Nashville was a good happy medium of the two!


What made you want a career in country music?My family is very musical and I saw that chasing a career in the music industry was always something that was possible. I have been very lucky to have such a strong support system that has never let me doubt my decision. 

Who are some of your musical icons? I admire strong female powerhouses such as Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Maren Morris and Shania Twain to name a few. I love their stage presence and the strong messages behind their music. They’ve definitely influenced my music in many ways. 


What is the background story behind your latest single “Used To?”“Used To” was a very personal song I wrote with my great songwriter friend David Espinoza that stemmed from a vent session. It’s about that point you hit in a relationship when you know its ending but you’re trying to hang on to any bit of hope left. I think many people can relate to this song as many others have experienced something like this before. 

How would you describe your music in 3 to 5 words?Honest, fierce, sassy, empowering

What are a few of your favorite venues to play at?I love coming back to play The Listening Room here in Nashville. The audience is all yours, they are there to hear the stories behind your music and you can see how much they appreciate it.

 What is your recording process like when you are making and creating new music? I usually come up with a concept and a melody together and the lyrics come from that. Once I have a pretty solid rough idea I’ll show it to my producer and we’ll start to build the song out from there. I love the pre-production process so much. It’s so fun watching your song come to life. 


What is one of your favorite quotes?What’s meant for you will come to you. This is something I constantly remind myself of to try to be more in the moment and not worry about what has or hasn’t happened yet. 

Is there anything else you would like to share? I’m so excited to show everyone what we’ve been working on in the studio and the content we’re creating for this new era of music of mine. 2022 is going to be a great one, I know it.
