Theresa Andersson: Hummingbird, Go!

Posted on June 19, 2008 Under Music

What do you do if you want to be a standout artist in a saturated genre? If you’re Swedish born Theresa Andersson, you approach the challenge in a non-conventional way. Andersson, who played every instrument on her new album, drew inspiration from her surroundings and combined them into 12 tracks recorded in her kitchen-turned-recording studio. “Hummingbird, Go!” is a musical journey with sounds reminiscent of the music you may have found on the radio 30 years ago. The music of each instrument (wine glasses, a violin, and vibraphone among them) is relatively simple but there is a complexity in how they are layered. The album is slated for release on September 2nd. Pick it up for a wonderfully relaxing, laying on your hammock on a Sunday afternoon, experience. In the meantime, you can watch her music video for “Na Na Na”
