Andrea Balency

A&R, Label & Publishing, Strategy

Franco-Mexican artist, singer, instrumentalist and producer Andrea Balency followed her 2014 breakthrough EP Walls with Volcano, an EP demonstrating growth in style, experience and quality beyond that which she had already shown. Balency treated her new forays into sound and melody as research – experimenting and building a mesh of unfound soundscapes from scratch to achieve a rare sui generis. With such a detailed level of consideration, in an avant-garde genre no less, her inherent talent is undeniable, and puts her in the same musical league as Cocteau Twins, Bjork and Jessy Lanza.

Since having been spotted in the Mexican art-rock scene, Balency has gone to becoming RBMA certified, being singled out to support James Blake, Au Revoir Simone, Inc. and Mount Kimbie on tour to name a few, and was even personally chosen by The Cure for their worldwide tour’s closing gig at the Mexico DF stadium to perform for 50,000 people.

She has seen many collaborations with a number of producers, of which particular highlights are vocal features on the FKA Twigs / We Are Shining track ‘Breaks’ and on Airhead’s lauded album “For Years”. Festival slots at Calvi On The Rocks, SXSW and Sonar; recent tours with Banks, Metronomy and London Grammar and continual approval from esteemed press are further testaments to Balency’s outstanding talent.
