Vicky wrote and sang her first song at age three. Since then music has been her defining feature. She began playing guitar at age fourteen and even though things weren’t easy for her, she was determined to learn and soon music became her savior and escape. All self taught, she was influenced by the styles of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimmy Page, soon developing a seasoned bluesy style and a sound that she made her own.
Her vocals have been described as a mix of Grace Slick and Ann Wilson with a little Melissa Etheridge thrown in. Strong, powerful and pleasing to the ear. Her ability to ROCK you can easily be compared to the great Chrissy Hynde of the Pretenders.
She has tremendous respect for the gifts that come to her in the form of a song. She writes from her own truth and experiences. Most recently her writing has become much more upbeat and positive, boasting life is good and I’m gonna sing about it!
In 1998 she released “February Rising.” A first of many dreams to come true for this musician. A chance to share her music in recorded form. Then in 2002 came “Attitude and Gratitude.” This release showing much learned and considerable growth. Her current cd “That’s That” is by far the best yet. Her writing is creative, fresh and reels you in right away. Her guitar playing fiercely commands you to take notice.
Vicky has shared the stage with many including Phillip Walker, Tucker and Thomas, James Armstrong band, but her ultimate dream would be to share the bill with Live, her favorite band, for whom she has the utmost respect.
Joining Vicky are the amazing talents of Mike Chesk on bass. His experience and advice are to say the least are immensely valuable. On drums is Jason Dean who has been playing with Vicky for seven years. Jason is extremely versatile. He is a rhythmic gem. Vicky is currently promoting her current release and booking performances along the east coast.

“Vicky Andres should be acknowledged as being among the leading singer songwriters of her generation. Her songs –self confessional, passionate, life affirming, full of poetic imagery and always intelligent, combined with her rich, powerfully engaging, slightly on the edge voice and imaginative, sensitive guitar playing… draws the listener in and never lets up. Vicky is truly an outstanding talent. She needs to be heard by many!!!”
David Maxwell, Tonecool Records.

“Power and passion. An amazing singer and songwriter. Startlingly original,Vicky Andres has the chops to go all the way to the top.
Dave Isaac, WKIT Bangor, Me.

Vicky's latest Cd ""That's That"" is available now. This is her best yet. A great mix of kick ass rock with a bluesy edge. Her guitar work is exceptional and her vocals, as always, ring strong and true. She has a pair of outstanding musicians to back her up. On bass she is joined by Gregg McGowan. She feels very fortunate to have his talents on this project since after the recording of ""That's That "" he had to relocate. Mike Chesk will be stepping in Greg's shoes. Jason Dean who has played with Vicky for eight years now joined her on the recording of this CD and will be playing during live performances.

She is planning to do a five song demo with producer/engineer David Seitz early spring. Recording cost are now being raised for this project. She is very familiar with David's work and feels that this is an excellent opportunity. Any donations are extremely appreciated. They can be donated through Paypal at or sent to PO Box 35 Vinalhaven ME 04863. Help her share her music with the world.
