Album Name: Orion
Artist: Andrea Klas
Year/Label: 2003 / Independent
Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
I’ve always said that there must be something in Canadian water that produces such great music. Well Andrea Klas has obviously been drinking the same water that has given us Sarah McLachlan and a host of other Sarahs Slean,Harmer, etc) and other-named musicians from that country.
“Orion” is a lovely CD. It’s filled with ethereal pop music that Canada is so prolific with. Andrea’s voice is lovely, soaring and perfect for this type of music.
Title track, “Orion” is a beautiful and very reminiscent of Tara MacLean
“Second Chance” is so radio-friendly that upon first listen I swore I’d heard it before.
If you like the aforementioned Tara M, Sarah M, Chantel Kreviazuk, and the like I think Andrea Klas is right up your alley.

I was totally shocked with her style of music. It’s unique with a variety of sounds, and the lyrics are so profound it’s like listening to poetry. I love it!
