Under the moniker of Loyal Lobos, Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Andrea Silva mines memories of a childhood growing up in the countryside of the Colombian capital, Bogotá, and her experiences as a young adult to create poetic, painterly music that makes sweeping allusions to love, sexuality, and femininity.
Silva was first introduced to music through her kindergarten teacher, who made her the soloist in the choir for every funeral and school graduation. Guitar lessons soon followed, and music became her first and most important outlet to process emotions. She moved to Los Angeles at age 18 to pursue her dream and there, Loyal Lobos was born. After performing in numerous bands and experimenting with different sounds, she found the essence of her solo sound and in 2016 wrote the music that would become her first EP, The Fall.
"Topping the bill is Loyal Lobos, the project of the Colombian-American songwriter Andrea Silva, whose recent Teddy Geiger-produced single, 'Criminals,' features her dreamy vocals atop atmospheric instrumentals." - The New York Times
