Andrea Echeverri Wins MTV Vmala “Best New Artist” Award
Published December 26, 2005

Colombian music icon Andrea Echeverri won an MTVLA/VMA for “Best New Artist”.  Andrea Echeverri’s self-titled solo debut also recently received a Grammy nomination in the “Best Latin Pop Album” category, as well as 2 Premio Lo Nuestro nominations.  Her debut solo album Andrea Echeverri was released by Nacional Records, the new ADA/Warner Music Group-distributed label. 
  
Best known as the frontwoman for acclaimed Colombian Latin alternative band Aterciopelados, Andrea Echeverri has long captivated audiences with her potently melodic brand of feminism.  After the critical and commercial success of  "Gozo Poderoso", which landed Aterciopelados on the Top 10 of the Billboard Top Latin Albums Sales chart as well as a coveted appearance on the ‘Tonight Show with Jay Leno’, Echeverri took time off for the birth of her first child Milagros, who has proven to be a new point of artistic inspiration.  The result is the self-titled album Andrea Echeverri, Andrea’s first solo release.  The disc was produced by Hector Buitrago from Aterciopelados and mixed by Thom Russo (Juanes, Kinky, Johnny Cash).
  
Just in time for the holidays, Andrea Echeverri and Aterciopelados fans are enjoying the new iTunes-only live acoustic session EP, which entered the iTunes’ Top 10 Latin Albums chart this week.  Recorded this past summer while on tour in the U.S., the session features some of Aterciopelados’ biggest hits (“El Album”, “Pipa de la Paz”) as well as fan favorites from Andrea Echeverri’s recently-released solo album, including “A eme O” and “Amortiguador”.  Andrea Echeverri continues to be a favorite on iTunes, when the digital retailer made her single “Amortiguador” a Discovery Download earlier this year, the track became iTunes’ most successful Discovery Download to date.
