Adron is rapidly being recognized as one of the most uniquely gifted songwriters and vocalists of this generation. Named Best Songwriter of 2012 by the Atlanta-based arts and culture magazine Creative Loafing, she has managed to unite audiences from wildly far-flung backgrounds, age groups and subcultures with her universally communicative and infectious music. In a style nearly impossible to describe using the terms of conventional genres, she playfully blends Brazilian samba, bossa nova and Tropicália with the sincerity and thoughtfulness of singer-songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Harry Nilsson, and the full-bodied rhythms of 1970’s pop and r&b.
“By combining elements of surreal, personal narratives and her quasi-Brazilian-style strum, Adron’s songs [are] at once baroque and hypnotic.” –Creative Loafing, Atlanta, GA
Adron’s music is infused with an international texture and a remarkably vintage, yet completely original and personal sound. While able to craft polished and mature songs, she possesses a bold and often bizarre sense of humor that she manages to sneak into her lyrics. Adron also adds a unique array of embellishments such as birdcalls and other vocalizations, and sings eloquently in three languages. Though the music is effortlessly pleasing, it is Adron’s rare ability to meld genre, geography and musical epochs that reveal the true breadth of her talent.
“Born as it is out of a true love for tradition, Adron’s inclusion of world music elements never feels trite or tacked on; her music is as warm and spirited as the cultures that have inspired it.” -Flagpole, Athens, GA
In addition to an extensive performance schedule she is an avid artist and displays the same extraordinary deftness and creativity in her visual art that she does in her music. She is adamant that all her album artwork and merchandise designs be her own, including the delicately beaded sculpture, mask and disc art used for Organismo’s album design. Outside her own creative endeavors, Adron has collaborated with artists such as Prefuse 73, Helado Negro, The Shadowboxers, Francis & The Lights, and Little Tybee. She is currently recording material for her next two full-length records; one a concept album about death and mazes called Thanatrópica, the other a follow-up to Organismo entitled Water Music.
“My favorite band ever.” -Eddie Owen (of Eddie Owen Presents: The Red Clay Theatre, former owner of Eddie’s Attic, Atlanta, GA)
