Lemonade Factory Music is the boutique record label and music publisher representing Andrea England’s song catalogue.
Nova Scotia born, Toronto-based singer-songwriter Andrea England has a unique ability to work successfully in many different music worlds, placing pop co-writes such as “Casualty” on Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger’s solo debut album, Killer Love, (for which she earned a U.K. Gold Record), country co-writes with rising stars and CCMA nominees Meghan Patrick and Twin Kennedy, while recording and performing as an Americana/folk solo artist herself.
A full seven years after her debut album, Lemonade, thrust her onto the scene with three Music Nova Scotia Award nominations, a TIMA Award, and prizes in the John Lennon International, USA, International, OCFF and NSAI songwriting competitions, Andrea released her sophomore effort, Hope & Other Sins (produced by powerhouse producer/guitarist Colin Linden) reconfirming her place at the artists’ table as it promptly entered Cashbox Magazine’s Top 50 Folk chart and hit #1 on the Galaxy Folk Roots Radio. The respect Andrea has garnered among her fellow songwriters is clear, as they’ve lent their musical talents to her most recent album, Hope & Other Sins, produced by Colin Linden (Nashville TV Show, the Band). In addition to the accomplished Linden himself on guitar, mandolin & dobro, you’ll hear Damhnait Doyle, Liz Rodrigues, & Carolyn Dawn Johnson on harmony vocals, Grammy Award winner Gordie Sampson on guitar, Dan Dugmore on pedal Steel, John Whynot on organ, and Bruce Brody 9Line Justice/Patti Smith Band) on piano.
An alumnus of many a SOCAN Songwriter Cafe and official industry showcase (CCMA, SXSW, NXNE, CMW, ECMA, MNS, NSAI, FAI) and an alumnus of ASCAP’s prestigious Lester Sill L.A. Songwriters Workshop (as 1 of only 12 songwriters – and the first Canadian and SOCAN member– selected to attend the annual L.A. songwriters summit), Andrea continues to build a multi-genre song catalogue, collaborating with an impressive list of Canadian and international pop, country and R&B hit-makers, including Liz Rodrigues (Celine Dion, Eminem), Adam Messinger (Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande), Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Hayley Gene (Cody Simpson), Rob Wells (Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez), Boi-1da (Eminem, Drake), Matthew Burnett, (Eminem), Jeremy Ruzumna (Bruno Mars, Macy Gray), Andrew Fromm (BS Boys), Curtis Richardson (J. Lo, Joss Stone), Luke McMaster (Rihanna), Kelly Levesque (Arista Artist), Serena Ryder, Colin MacDonald, Mitch Caplan (Sister Sledge, Chaka Khan) as well as writing with emerging pop and country artists such as Alee, Alessia Cohle, Madeline Merlo, Cassie DaSilva, Sam Drysdale, Kayla Diamond, Jenna Andrews (Def Jam Artist), Tenille, Trinity Bradshaw, Tyler Kyte, Guinevere (now Dylyn), Steve Rivers, and Melissa Bel (currently on Quebec’s “La Voix” – and on whose previous album Andrea had 3 cuts) among others.
Recent co-written singles include Hairspray/Jersey Boys star, Tara Macri’s “Crush” YouTube sensation Roveena’s “Love Will LIght the Way,” Zameer’s “Take”, and rising star Kolton Stewart’s “Missing You.”
Andrea is a voting member of both the American (NARAS/Grammys) and Canadian (CARAS/Junos) Academies of Recording Arts & Sciences, has performed at SXSW, NXNE, CMW, CCMAs, ECMAs, OCFF and FAI music festivals, worked on the business side of the music industry as well. A proud alumnus of both Dalhousie (Gender & Women’s Studies) and St. Francis Xavier (English Literature) Universities, Andrea believes in the power of education and the importance of giving back: she’s led songwriting workshops for Guitar WorkshopPlus, the Honey Jam, the Singing Competition, and Elaine Overholt’s Big Voice Studios and is the founder and host of Four Chords & the Truth, Toronto’s newest and hottest ‘in the round’ top songwriters showcase, in support of the Unison Benevolent Fund.
