Andrea Veltri- Artist Spotlight!!!

While growing up on the outskirts of Chicago, Andrea Veltri has never had a problem in her mind that music was the direction for her. At 5 years old she got her first guitar, and soon started taking lessons at 6 years old. When she was 8, she commenced playing in a punk/rock band as the lead singer and guitar player. Sadly, five years later the band broke up, but that did not stop Veltri’s love for music. 

Instead, it directed her to country music and inspired her to seek a solo career. Since focusing on her writing and originality, she started to play at different venues and opened for many for different musicians like Jana Kramer, Anna Nalick and Jason Michael Carroll.

On November 16th, 2018, her first single “What I Know Now,” was released. Since then, she has launched herself into her music and writing and it’s imitated in her debut EP “Starting Over,” which was released on October 22, 2021. The seven songs show growth, honesty and reliability. On this EP Hughes opens up about heartbreak in all forms. The EP marks a completely new chapter and shows that starting over can be done with grace.
