the Milky Way.” Elegant acoustic guitar behind their words helps dedicate and identify this poem to anyone going through a difficult time.Musical collaborations both on Andrea’s albums and at their live shows arecertainly unique to spoken word, but because Gibson has always written while listening to music, the incorporation of violins, acoustic guitar, and backing tracks felt natural onHEY GALAXY.“I always prefer making art with other people. I was thrilled to work with a lot of talented folks on this record and I’m looking forward to touring with them around the country.”HEY GALAXYfeatures the work of Jesse Thomas, Andrew Joslyn, Chris Pureka and Bryan Wagstaff (who also produced + mixed the record) to namea few.Said Gibson, “I like to work with artists who inspire me into fuller expression, who help pull the bravest story out of me.”Whether their art is de-stigmatizing mental illness, encouraging people to stay alive, bringing visibility to queer relationships, or inspiring activism that dismantles patriarchy, capitalism, and white supremacyHEY GALAXYdoesfeel brave. On stage at packed clubs and theaters around the globe, Andrea will often announce that their biggest fear is public speaking or matter-of-factly announce that they are having a panic attack in the middle of their performance. This attitude might seem strange during a traditional show, but feels right at home here.The vulnerability of Andrea's honesty makes the audience feel welcome as they are, which brings them back to Andrea Gibson shows time and time again.Along with their books, albums, and posters, you will find a t-shirt on Andrea’s merchandise table featuring an upside-down umbrella and text that reads, “Feelings Are Not the Enemy.” Each night, this shirt flies off the merch table and hundreds of fans wait in line to get them signed.Gibson finishes a poem and notices someone donning a shirt out in the audience. They shield their eyes from the spotlight and look at the person and smile. “You know, sometimes I take a Sharpie and cross out those words on my own t-shirt. Sometimes feelings really ARE the enemy,” and there’s that laughter from the audience again as they settle in for another poem, mouthing the words, feeling a little less alone
