Andra Liemandt – The Mrs.

October 28, 2016

Andra is the founder and leader of The Mrs, creating the vision for the group both musically, philosophically and philanthropically, while taking care of the details of leading rehearsals and managing the business side of the band. A boundary pusher, giver, loyal friend and dedicated hard worker by nature, she began writing songs to connect with women like herself: mothers who want a full life and want it all: personal relationships, careers, marriages and friendships, and experience a multitude of life experiences that aren’t always portrayed on mainstream radio. After years in the corporate world, she picked up the sticks when her second daughter was 7 months old and fell in love with drumming, a passion that artfully incorporates her passions for both dancing and music. Andra’s personal project turned into a movement when she formed The Mrs to help women see themselves in a more positive light and change the negative self-talk that happens when they look in the mirror. Andra’s other passion is finding unique ways to partner with organizations in the community that are aligned with the founding values of The Mrs. Most recently, she founded The Kindness Campaign on the belief that kindness is the key to changing the way children see themselves and how they relate to one another. “The Mrs is a way for me to share my message with women everywhere that it’s never too late to try something new,” she says.
