Swedish born, New Orleans based soul singer Theresa Andersson is back with a new album, Street Parade, a lush, joyful and sometimes melancholy ode to they city she has called “home” for nearly 20 years.

A stunning vocalist and a talented multi-instrumentalist, Theresa is best known for her live shows, where she crafts complexly layered songs using bevy of drums, stringed instruments and looping pedals. She became an internet phenomenon in 2008, when Youtube featured a home-made video of her performing a song in her kitchen. The song,“Na Na Na,” from her album Hummingbird, Go!, logged 750,000 views in three days, and has gone on to accumulate nearly 1.5 million views on YouTube.

Andersson’s new album, Street Parade, reflects a dreamy Nordic pop sensibility firmly rooted and influenced by the warm gospel and soul sounds that drew the artist to New Orleans in the first place. The title track, “Street Parade,” opens the record with resounding vocals rising over a regimental drum-line, testifying to the catharsis and impermanence of the carnival. The focus then draws back cinematically into the rush of the parade as the piano fades on “Injuns,” and Theresa’s voice bounds over a heart-quickening percussion of handclaps, drumsticks and thrumming base. Theresa’s voice plays from a tongue-in-cheek 60s standard to a subtle snarl on the nocturnal brass breakdown of “Fiya’s Gone.”  “What Comes Next” opens with a bright horn melody and mighty drum cadence leading into a powerful chorus on which Theresa is joined by Peter Moren of Peter Bjorn and John.

” …her range and strength are that of a soul belter’s, though her tone comes closer to the ingenues of classic pop like Feist and Lykke Li.”
- Los Angeles Times, Ann Powers

“…she draws from many muses at once, and the result sounds like a one-woman wonder.”
- NPR, Song Of The Day

“one-woman band Theresa Andersson pretty much floored all of us with her performance.”
– KCRW, Top 10 Live Performances of 2009”
