Andreena performs music from new mixtape at The Known Unknown [Video]
Toronto, ON – The Known Unknown is an amazing monthly showcase series, created by Tika Simone, that gives rising Toronto artists an opportunity to perform for a live audience. It’s a great way for music lovers in the city to find out who they are and for them to gain a following. Last week was the first installment of The Known Unknown in the new year and I had the pleasure of joining a packed house at Wrongbar to watch and listen to the many talented artists within the city. This particular showcase featured headliner Andreena, formerly known as Andreena Mill, alongside a full band. The songstress performed exclusive cuts off her upcoming mixtape entitled, Naked. Other performances included current students and alumni of The Remix Project, such as Vanessa Lu, Shocka and Owen “O’Sound” Lee, as well as John River, Sean Leon, Never, Shadrack, Dixon, Juvon Taylor and Sola.
2013 is going to be a big year for Andreena, she has completely re-branded herself and is embarking on a new journey in her musical career, hence the title of her new mixtape. She has started a weekly online series called Hip Hop Chronicle’s where she performs piano-dubbed covers of her favourite current and old hip-hop songs. You can check out the series every Thursday at 5pm EST on her YouTube Channel. Watch some of Andreena’s performance at The Known Unknown below and hit the jump for the pictures.
