Adron
Adron
Adron is rapidly being recognized as one of the most uniquely gifted songwriters and vocalists of this generation. Her music seamlessly blends Classical harmony with the playfulness of ‘60s Brazilian Tropicàlia, the earnestness and sentiment of songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Harry Nilsson, and the cerebral sincerity of the hymn song. In 2011, her newest album Organismo was voted by Atlanta’s Creative Loafing magazine as #1 Album of the Year, and in 2012, they named her Best Songwriter. Adron’s “By combining elements of surreal, personal narratives and her quasi-Brazilian-style strum, Adron’s songs were at once baroque and hypnotic.” -Creative Loafing
Adron’s music is infused with an international texture and a remarkably vintage, yet highly original and polished modern sound. While being able to craft songs with acumen and maturity, she also possesses an understanding of harmony both keen and innocent. She adds to her songs a unique array of embellishments such as birdcalls and other vocalizations, and sings eloquently in three languages. Her youthful exuberance and adroit musicianship together form a style both distinctive and pleasing, but it is her rare ability to meld genre, geography, and musical epochs that reveal the true breadth of Adron’s 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

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 statuette and mask used for Organismo. Outside her own creative endeavors, Adron has collaborated with artists such as Prefuse 73, Helado Negro, The Selmanaires, Francis & The Lights, and Little Tybee. Her plans for the next year include a tour of the United States and abroad, and the development of material for her next two albums: one a concept album about death and mazes called Thanatrópica, the other a follow-up to Organismo tentatively entitled Mãos.

For fans of: Caetano Veloso, Harry Nilsson, Joni Mitchell
Emily Lynch
Emily Lynch
Emily Lynch is a young singer-songwriter hailing from Atlanta, Georgia with more than just a pretty face. She sings with experience, humility, and a sweet vintage voice that truly sets her apart. Her voice has been compared to that of Alison Krauss, Patty Griffin, and Emmylou Harris. She is a proficient guitarist and songwriter with an undeniably endearing and engaging presence and a heart full of songs that captive her audiences.
After a brief stint as an intern with OMG Entertainment in Greenville, SC, Emily was introduced to producer Dan Hannon (Manchester Orchestra, A Rocket to the Moon, Aaron Shust), in May of 2008. Hannon's initial impression was very favorable, and he agreed to help Emily develop her style and 'find her voice' as an artist. In the ensuing months, Emily wrote and demoed an astonishing 80 songs. "It's rare to find an artist as dedicated and as driven as Emily", says Hannon. "There are plenty of artists who expect to show up and have a career delivered to them on a silver platter." Emily has greatly enjoyed and benefited from working alongside Hannon. "Dan is the one who pushes me to be the best - always raising the standard. He keeps me focused on the important things even when it's difficult, and I've grown to appreciate and respect him for it. We make a good team and I am a better artist because of his influence", says Lynch.
Balancing her life on the road, Emily co-writes frequently across the States, including collaborating with some of the best and brightest writers in Atlanta, Nashville, and Charleston. Always writing and creating new melodies, Emily has penned over 60 new songs since she finished her debut. Lynch muses that "that kind of discipline is the least I can do, if I"m trying to follow in the footsteps of the greats - Emmylou Harris, Loretta Lynn, Patty Griffin, and Alison Krauss."
