Aterciopelados & Andrea Echeverri to Release Exclusive iTunes “Live” Unplugged Session EP
Published November 17, 2005

Following her recent Latin Grammy nomination, the lead singer of Aterciopelados will release an intimate acoustic session EP with her band.

Grammy-nominated Latin rock icon Andrea Echeverri and her band Aterciopelados will be releasing a special live acoustic session EP exclusively on iTunes on December 20th.  Recorded this past summer in the iTunes studio, 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.

Andrea Echeverri’s self-titled solo debut recently received a Latin Grammy nomination in the “Best Female Pop Vocal Album” category.  The album 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), and also features a remix from Richard Blair (Sidestepper).
