Early life and careerEdit
Andreone's first album, Veiled, produced by Rick Neigher, was released by RCA in 1996. It included the hit single "It's Alright, It's OK", which charted in the U.S., Europe, and Australia. It was introspective whereas her next album, Alchemy, was more sexual and intimate. Andreone's lyrics are often treatises on psychology, reflecting her interest in the subject.
Since Alchemy, Andreone has continued to write and perform. She has collaborated with other artists and writers, such as Billy Steinberg, Kevin Fisher, Rob Hyman, Eric Bazilian, Marti Fredrikson, Charlie Clouser (Nine Inch Nails), John Shanks, David Lowery (Cracker), John Lowery (Marilyn Manson), Kasia Livingston, Kay Hanley (Letters To Cleo), Michelle Lewis, and Martha Davis (The Motels). She has also worked as a producer and toured with Lilith Fair.
Andreone contributed a cover version of Carole King's, "I Feel the Earth Move" to the Speed 2: Cruise Control soundtrack. She also released the Veiled era song, "We're Not Alone" to the Women For Women 2 album, proceeds from which went to the National Alliance of Breast Cancer Organizations. In August 2008, she released a cover version of "You Are My Sunshine" on the compilation CD UndisCOVERed.
In 2006, Andreone released an EP of new material entitled UNLABELED - The Demos, which contains a cover version of Beyoncé Knowles's "Deja Vu". On September 1, 2009, she released a new full-length CD entitled Avalanche (written and produced by Andreone and Kevin Fisher). Avalanche includes a co-written duet with Dan Wilson (Semisonic, Dixie Chicks, etc.). A video was released for the first single, "Never Stop Trying".
