A N D A R A is the stage name of American singer/songwriter, musician, and visual artist, Ashley Marie Pavicic. 'My music is a collage of my life, with bits of soul-searching lyrics placed within the sounds and feelings of the places I've been. When I listen to the songs, I hear the quiet of my Minnesota childhood, the ethereal tones of choral music, and the jazz influence of Chicago. I hear the emerging love of layers and electric guitar from Los Angeles, the acoustic guitar sounds of Nashville, the California canyons, and nature, interspersed with a life-long interest in philosophy and spiritual growth. I'm quite a sensitive and sensory-oriented person, so my experience of place and space is deeply woven in everything that I do.'
