Andrea Corr - Musician

Updated on March 28, 2013

The Youngest of the Corr

Andrea Jane Corr (born May 17, 1974) was the lead singer and the youngest member of the Irish pop-rock Celtic band The Corrs. In her younger years, Andrea was the best student among all her siblings. She began her life with the band as soon as she graduated from secondary school. The Corrs parents are musician who encourage their children to pursue their careers in music.

She is the main lyricist when the group writes songs. Also plays the tin whistle, which when combined with her sister Sharon's fiddle playing gives the group its distinctively Irish sound. The Corrs music shows strong influences from traditional Celtic but also modern pop such as the Eagles and the Carpenters.

While the The Corrs is currently on hiatus, Andrea released her solo album Ten Feet High, in 2007. The album moved away from the folk-rock genre of the Corrs and features a darker edgier dance-pop sound. She is also involved in many charitable activities. She has played charity concerts to raise money for the Pavarotti & Friends Liberian Children's Village, Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, the victims of the Omagh bombing in Northern Ireland and The Prince's Trust in 2004.

Andrea Corr Quotes

“Music is sexy, music is sensual. And an expression of yourself and that side of you comes out sometimes. I know I can be like that on stage but it's innocent. I don't do anything I just get into it, feel it.”
