An occupational therapist at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and mother of two, Andréa began her singing career as a soloist and choir member in churches in Saskatchewan. Her writing and song selection reflect her interest in classical, sacred and popular music. She did her first recording in 2005 as a vocal accompanist on Rick Scott's Juno nominated "Snooze Music". As her desire to go deeper into singing as a natural devotional practice took form, she decided in 2014 to record and release an album. With her recording engineer husband Anthony Maki and producer Valley Hennell at the helm and with a generous offering from talented and tenacious friends, her debut offering, "Hymns For Her" was born.
