After studying at Berklee College of Music and The Boston Conservatory, New York City native Andromeda Turre kickstarted her career as the last Raelette hired to sing for Ray Charles.

The August 7th release of her live EP consists of four new videos. A re-imagination of the classic “Pennies From Heaven", a re- harmonization of Nirvana's “Smells Like Teen Spirit" and two original songs, “Alive" and “Golden". “Golden" features her father Steve Turre and her brother, Orion Turre plays drums on all tracks, making it a family affair.

Orion Turre : drums
Steve Turre: trombone *

CD Special Guests:

Steve Turre: trombone/shells
James Carter: saxophones
Sachal Vasandani: vocals

“The spirit of rebellion and ripeness is embodied within 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. When I hear it, I feel like I can walk through flames. This song gave me power when I was an awkward teenager who didn't fit in, so I wanted to return to that source of power to help me have the courage to put myself out there.

It was conceptualized as a collaboration with my brother, Orion, who plays drums on the track. He did the arrangement and I changed up some of the lyrics and melody to suit my voice and my story. The ability to present this song in a way that is relevant to the style of music I sing today gives me a mature sense of authority that I hope is internalized when people hear it."—Andromeda Turre
