Adeline’s (pronounced ad-uh-leen) new ADI OASIS EP is a tour de force! Earning acclaim spanning Rolling Stone, Bass Player, Blackbook and more, the 7-song collection features a handful of previously shared, fan-favorite singles and three enthralling new tracks. ADI OASIS is the unapologetic, fearless yet vulnerable persona that Adeline embodies on stage & in the studio. She shares, “Creating this EP during one of the weirdest times in our modern history — not just the pandemic, but also living through these difficult political times, global warming, struggle against racism, etc. — has brought to light a deeper meaning for what music is to me. Music is my oasis, the stage is my oasis, the studio is my oasis.”
French-Caribbean singer, bassist and producer has unleashed the brand new “Stages” ft. KAMAUU single + video, sharing:
“Stages” is about my journey in the music business as a young black woman, but it’s relevant to indie artists in general, and everyone who’s hustling to reach their goals. I’ve had many experiences of not being taken seriously, of people making me feel like I’m not good enough, and of being hit on by fake aspiring collaborators who turned out to have ulterior motives. ‘Stages’ is my self-affirming chant reminding me that ‘I’m not going to take sh*t from anybody anymore. I got this. I trust myself’. Having KAMAUU on the song felt perfect because not only is he talented beyond words, but he’s also been a great advocate for me as a female producer.”
“Stages is also a reminder to myself that no matter where I am in my musical journey, I’m right where I’m supposed to be. When people discover a “new artist”, they often don’t realize they’re actually seeing the result of years and years of hard work. And while it’s tempting as an artist to compare ourselves to other artists who might seem to be having more success, every stage is a win — a necessary step towards the next one. There are so many different ways of measuring success, and every artist’s journey is unique. I get to create this story in the way that works for me.”
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH FUSICOLOGY
An unstoppable creative force, Adeline made good use of the pandemic shutdown to further explore multiple creative lanes and connect with fans. She taught herself to direct and produce 6 music videos, produced KAMAUU’s YouTube hit “Mango” as Nightshade, her new production duo with creative partner Morgan Wiley (Midnight Magic, Hercules & Love Affair) and guested on multiple tracks with Wax Tailor, Kraak & Smack + others. She also doubled her Instagram fanbase and grew her Spotify listenership by 10,000%, now at 500,000/month!
Originally introduced to the world as the front woman for the nu-disco band Escort, Adeline has toured globally, sharing the stage with such notables as Anderson .Paak, Lee Fields, Chromeo, Big Freeda and Natalie Prass, as well as making recent appearances at Afropunk, Funk on the Rocks (Red Rocks) and Winter Jazz Fest, Celebrate Brooklyn! in Prospect Park and Central Park Summerstage.
