Biography

Andrea Jane Corr MBE (born 17 May 1974) is an Irish musician, songwriter, and actress. Corr debuted in 1990 as the lead singer of the Celtic folk rock and pop rock group The Corrs along with her three elder siblings Caroline, Sharon, and Jim. Aside from singing lead vocals Corr plays the tin whistle and the piano.

With the others, Corr has released five studio albums, two compilation albums, one remix album and two live albums. The Corrs are currently on hiatus as all four are raising their children. Andrea is also pursuing a solo career, releasing her debut album, Ten Feet High, in 2007. The album moved away from the folk-rock genre of The Corrs and features a darker, edgier dance-pop sound. Her next album, released on May 30, 2011, was entirely made up of covers of songs that were important to her when younger.

In the summer of 2012, she re-recorded the track "Pale Blue Eyes" (which had first appeared on her album "Lifelines") with German electronic musician Christopher von Deylen, better known under his alias Schiller. It was released in Germany on October 5th on the Schiller album Sonne.
