Artist Biography:
Adrienne Frailey is a Hoosier singer-songwriter whose vibrant, acoustic sound has caught the attention of folk-indie and Americana DJs across the country, including IU's WIUX-FM. Writing since the age of twelve and performing since sixteen, her original guitar and keyboard melodies are distinct and memorable. Her 2013 indie single "New Eyes" was written at the request of Los Angeles author/youtube personality Kaleb Nation as a theme for his new novel Harken. Adrienne as a teen was "already displaying real depth as a singer/songwriter...from the tiny town of Milford, IN," noted Folkalley.com (alley chat), and was their featured Open Mic Artist for March 09. She wrote, recorded and self-produced Goodnight to the Stars (2009; 11 tracks) and Definitely (2011; 18 tracks). Both CDs ranked in the Top Albums of the Year at WVPE's "The Back Porch (Elkhart)" where host Al Kniola calls her a "truly extraordinary talent" and her voice a "lovely blend of velvet and soul." She transcends her Midwestern roots to explore the global human journey. Listeners use terms like goosebumps (Germany), and brilliant (Wales) to describe her music. "I sing Dying Breath to my baby. It's so beautiful (from the Bush, Australia)." Acoustic Pie (San Diego/ Live 365) noted, of "the new artists on the Top 20 List, Adrienne Frailey stands out." While she rivets audience with her renditions of traditional tunes, her original ballads have also garnered praise: balladeer Andrew Calhoun calls her song Lilian as "spare and gripping as any in the Child collection.
