André Rievers was born and raised in Brazil and has lived in the US for the past 30 years. Andre began his career as a musician in college bars in North Carolina in 1995 and has since become one of the pioneers of the Brazilian music movement in Atlanta, recording 5 albums, performing alongside Marcelo Camera, Charlie Wooton and Rafael Pereira just to mention a few and sharing the stage with international stars like Bacilos, Zé Renato, Khari Cabral and India Arie. Andre's was primarily known as the front man for the wildly popular band Rua 6, with Juan Bonini, Vlamir Abbud, Rafael Pereira, Drew Dudley and Cooper Tisdale. Rua 6 became one of Atlanta's longest running acts, (nearly 15 years,) and was voted best world music band 3 years in a row, marking a constant presence in Music Festivals including the respected Atlanta Jazz Festival. André's musical influence derives from his love of his native Brazil, and the strong cultural diversity that is translated through Brazilian music.
