The De La Warr Pavilion and Towner Eastbourne are delighted to host MOBO nominated singer-songwriter Andreya Triana in conversation with DLWP’s Head of Live Programme Ed Frith.

In this insightful online session, particularly for those in the music and wider creative industries, Andreya will reflect on her career and motivations. Topics will include the benefits of collaboration, developing creatively and commercially and, post-pandemic, how writers, performers and the industry might adapt and build resilience for the future as well as discussing how she’s found living in East Sussex after moving there recently.

Having been a part of the Ninja Tune / Just Isn’t Music family since 2010 with the release of her debut album, Lost Where I Belong, Andreya has since gone on to co-write with many great artists including Ninja/Jim Alumni Bonobo, Flying Lotus and Ben Westbeech and been asked to join the judging panel for the prestigious Ivor Novello awards.

She has played live on the BBC at Hyde Park in front of 50,000 people, produced a stand-out performance on Later with Jools Holland and released two further albums with her encapsulating vocals.

Building on her initial success and with a top ten selling single & a MOBO award nomination under her belt, Andreya has recently extended her talents to music production,. Andreya’s music has featured in shows such as The Good Wife, Grey’s Anatomy, Being Mary Jane, Self Made and When They See Us.

Andreya will be in conversation with DLWP Head of Live Programme Ed Frith. Ed joined the De La Warr Pavilion from the Roundhouse, Camden in 2018. In his 25 year career he has developed strong relationships with the music industry and delivered festivals and events involving artists such as Radiohead, Prince, Davie Byrne, Patti Smith and The Pixies. Ed is also co-chair of 1066 Music City, a collaboration to support and develop the music economy and place it at the heart of regeneration in the area.
