PREMIERE | Toronto's Andi Releases Nostalgic Tune Titled "Half Home"

Filed under: 
On Our Radar

Andi is a Toronto based artist who is very involved in her music making process, producing original tunes that make you feel okay. 

She released her debut EP Sketches last year and is currently working on her first full length inspired by issues she sees in herself and in the world. Subjects include women’s empowerment, toxic views on masculinity, LGTBQ+ issues and her lived experience as a bisexual woman. Her relatable music communicates everyday experiences of self-conflict, emotionality, and love, qualities that characterize the human condition.

Her latest single "Half Home" is a catchy coming-of-age type rock-infused tune, almost nostalgic in some ways. Reminiscent of the old-school type tracks of our favourite movies growing up, the song is perfect for end of summer vibes, wrapping up all the different types of experiences and emotions we've gone through this season. You'll find yourself looking back at all that's happened and nodding your head because everything is okay. 

When asked what inspired her to write this piece of music, Andi responded: 

This song is about being young and in a transitionary stage of life. When I wrote the track I was constantly alone and on the road, floating from recording sessions to rehearsals, and crashing in my car between gigs. Writing this song helped me embrace living in a state of change.
