Andrea Haines

Andrea's love of singing started early as a member of the choir in her parish church in Kent, England. She went on to join as many choirs as would have her, including youth choirs of the Royal School of Church Music, and then studied Music at Cardiff University, before joining the GRAMMY®-nominated British vocal ensemble VOCES8 in 2008.
