Andrea Ramolo is a multiple Canadian Folk Music Award nominee and has earned accolades from the press and her contemporaries both for her solo work and her part in the duo Scarlett Jane. Born to Italian immigrants, Andrea began her artistic life as a dancer and actor until she released her debut album Thank You For The Ride in 2008 which sent her on a tour of more than 150 shows across Canada in support of the release. Living out of her van and playing close to 200 concerts per year following that debut earned her the nickname ‘road-warrior.’ Following her debut was the release of her second Tim Thorney-produced record The Shadows and the Cracks in 2011” which granted her a nomination at the Canadian Folk Music Awards for Emerging Artist of the Year.
She then formed Scarlett Jane with Cindy Doire and spent five years extensively touring behind two albums – 2012’ s Stranger and 2015’s eponymous self-titled offering, both released under Warner Music Canada and earning her two more CFMA nominations.
Following that, Ramolo contributed to projects by Lee Harvey Osmond (where she crossed paths with Timmins), leading to the creation of NUDA (Italian for naked). The album emerged out of a deep depression following a romantic breakup and a shift in her artistic path; but brought about a hugely positive metamorphosis, personally and creatively. The alternative folk album is cool, dark, understated and melancholy and earned her a mention on the 2017 Polaris Prize longer list.
Her most recent record, Homage, stood as an important next step in her journey. The album honours songs by the late and great Leonard Cohen (once again produced by Timmins) and earned her a 2020 Canadian Folk Music Award Nomination for Contemporary Singer of the Year.
Andrea has had the pleasure of singing alongside Gordon Lightfoot, Andy Maize, Ron Sexsmith, Tom Wilson, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Adam Cohen and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, and more. She continues to tour the Canadian festival circuit and has successfully built a following overseas in Europe, especially in Italy. Andrea performs in both English and Italian and recently released her first Italian single written and recorded in quarantine as a love letter to the people of Italy during the Covid-19 pandemic. She used the song to fundraise for the Italy Covid-19 Response Appeal. Andrea is also the host of Vintage Italy with Andrea Ramolo on ITOC Italian Radio.
