"Hard Pressed" is a marriage of two lives - of a fiddle and a banjo - of rich, honest and pure harmonies, both in life and in song. Their material, both original and traditional, is transcended by the delivery of their rich, heartfelt vocals which pull the listener into their music. Raised on opposite sides of the country, this musical union merged in the mountains of Colorado to create a new blend of old-time music.
After moving to Colorado, from Virginia, Andrea had the opportunity to record and perform with Americana singer-songwriter Sand Sheff (including "The Reeltime Travelers" & Martha Scanlan). She also performed with the "Old Time Jam Band", featuring Benny Galloway (Wayword Sons), Robin Davis(Dixie Bee-Liners, Broke Mountain, Wayword Sons), Anders Beck (Greensky Bluegrass, Broke Mountain) & Glenn Keefe (Leftover Salmon, Lefthand Stringband). While performing at the same festival, Andrea and her banjo met Cory and his fiddle and a short while later they were married. Andrea is the main songwriter for the group.
