Adron, Mick Mayer

From the venue:A new and ultraviolet feather in LA’s cap, Adron is making waves with her timeless and wholly unusual musical oeuvre. Raised in Atlanta, she’s a singer-songwriter too restless to stay rooted in the American South. Her kaleidoscopic guitar work carries the influence of Brazilian eminences like Luiz Bonfa and Caetano Veloso, while her voice has the classic clarity and richness of Doris Day with the adventurousness of Joni Mitchell. She aims to distill the entire history and geography of pop music into her own alchemical creation; in her songwriting there’s careful structure, safeguarding a vintage pop nostalgia, but in the lyrics there’s play, humor, and a bare-hearted frankness that feels too personal to come from anywhere but the present. Also a champion whistler, Adron incorporates not just melody but even birdcalls into her productions, layered into a sonic backdrop evoking lush climes and opiate breezes.
