Drop Andrea a line
Andrea Robertson bringing you a mixed bag of Soul, Funk, Neo-Soul, & Jazz maybe with a little Reggae & Soulful House thrown in …. If the groove makes you move then show is for you.
Becoming a radio presenter has allowed me to interview so many soul artists, my first was a young independent artist called Chidi then the doors were open. Tony Momrelle, Will Downing, Ledisi, Ronn Matlock, Ted Winn, Kloud 9, David Mensah, Marc Staggers, Nicole Mitchell, Al Olive, Freddie Lee, Jocelyn Brown , N’Dambi, Leroy Burgess, Carvalho, Daniel Moore, Eric Benet, the SOS Bands Mary Davis and Abdul Ra’oof, Natasha Watts, Cool Million, Gwen McCrae to name but a few.
Wow!! Music be the food of life…it has been my life, from an early age all I heard was music, if the radio wasn’t on then the record player was. My father ran a club so my introduction to live music came early too, oh how I wished I had kept the signed photo of Desmond Dekker !! This pattern has stayed with me, I love radio, playing music in any form be it vinyl, CD or digital. I adore live music too, I don’t have to be asked twice to see live acts…
My first experience on the radio was back in 2008 on NE1FM, based in Newcastle. I went on as a guest & was given my own show shortly afterwards & The PureSoulShow was born…The nickname SistaSoul was given & has stuck!! The station allowed me to do interviews, chatting with my soul heroes was amazing…I moved on to other stations, Soulgang Radio with Colin Curtis, Sunrise with Brian Jay, Starpoint and more recently Solar….
The music I play has to work on so many levels, the arrangement, vocal and melody are so important to me. I like to promote new independent artists as everyone needs a chance to shine.
I would like the listener to feel my passion for the music, provoking or creating a memory.
