Who is Adele?

After watching this past Grammy Awards, many are asking, ‘Who is Adele?’  She doesn’t look like the stereotypical pop/mainstream singer, but then again, she really isn’t pop (more of a wide-mixture of neo-soul, jazz and indie-pop).  The British artist is only 20 years old and her debut album, ’19,’ which was just released in 2008, has been already been widely-acclaimed as a modern-day classic.  Furthermore, out of her four nominations at the Grammy Awards, she took home two for ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.’

A Little on Adele’s Background

Meet one of 2008’s most exciting new talents. Even before she’s released a note of music – and at barely 19 – ADELE has already chalked up a Jools Holland appearance, worked with Jim Abiss, Eg White and Mark Ronson, signed to XL Recordings and supported Jack Penate, Raul Midon, Amos Lee and Devendra Banhart.

“As soon as I got a microphone in my hand, when I was about 14, I realised I wanted to do this,” she says. “Most people don’t like the way their voice sounds when it’s recorded. I was just so excited by the whole thing that I wasn’t bothered what it sounded like.”

A fan of such diverse artists as Jill Scott, Etta James, Billy Bragg, Peggy Lee, Jeff Buckley and The Cure, Adele’s soul-tinged songs of love’s lost and memories made are set to resonate with all who hear them.  (Read More)
