ADRON is the nom de guerre of Adrienne McCann, young singer and songwriter who has been lately rejuvenating the pop music scene in Atlanta, Georgia. Adron seamlessly blends Classical harmony with the playfulness of ‘60s Brazilian Tropicàlia, the earnestness and sentiment of 70′s songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Harry Nilsson, and the cerebral sincerity of the hymn song. Adron has infused her newest full-length record, Organismo, with an international texture and a remarkably vintage, yet highly original and polished modern sound. She adds to her songs a unique array of embellishments such as bird calls and other vocalizations, sometimes using her voice to mimic the instrumentation of a full orchestra, and sometimes singing in Portuguese and French, using language as another instrument. 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.

Scheduled for an end-of-the-year release, Organismo features also the extensive collaboration of versatile and virtuosic percussionist Colin Agnew, and keyboardist Chris Case, as well as Ryan Donald and Josh Martin, both members of another notable Atlanta indie band, Little Tybee. Other sounds on the record include flute, harpsichord, marimba, Moog synthesizer, a full Brazilian Maracatú arrangement, and a varied assortment of random non-musical objects found in the studio. Outside her work on Organismo, 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 Organismotentatively entitled Mãos.
