About: Seattle-based Sugartown is unquestionably, unabashedly pop: memorable melodies, lushly layered vocal harmonies, hooky guitar licks and lots of ‘em! Yet listen closely and you’ll hear threads of other genres like jazz, country, and classical all woven together to create an intriguing new soundscape. The band is fronted by singer-songwriter-pianist Andrea Wittgens who, armed with a voice smooth as cognac and a knack for writing well-crafted songs, made her way from Nova Scotia Canada to Seattle to form Sugartown in 2000. Since then, the band has recorded two albums including the brand new full-length release “How Do You Love, Aquamarine?”. The 11 songs on this CD evoke memories of Carole King and of singer songwriter Erin McKeown, blending theatrical musical themes with bright pop tunes. ? Response to Sugartown has been overwhelmingly positive from both fans and critics like Bill Fisher of Victory Review who recently exclaimed that Sugartown is “exquisitely evocative o!
f the finest popmeisters of the past three decades…music that is very new and fresh, unlike anything I've ever heard before.”
