In 2012, Hennessy launched its first ever international talent quest. Over 500 bands submitted their entries on Hennessy.com and the Brand’s fans voted for the winner to take their music from online to onstage.
After NexCyx from Barbados in 2012, ColinResponse from Canada in 2013, Andria Simone and those guys won the competition in 2014. She performed alongside A-list artists including Ben l'oncle Soul, Lily Allen and M among others in the beautiful town of Cognac.
The band enjoyed a week in Cognac discovering the town, appreciating the food and visiting emblematic places of Hennessy Maison.
This year again, the winner opened the Blues Passions festival, offering a concert full of energy. On June 30th, Andria Simone and those guys had the privilege to open Blues Passions festival in a unique venue, Hennessy old bottling factory. Very interactive with the audience and sharing her wonderful enthusiasm she interpreted her best songs. Her powerful voice and her charismatic stage presence definitely conquered the festival-goaers.
