Adrina Thorpe Bio:
Singer/songwriter and pianist, Adrina Thorpe, is a refreshing sound in adult alternative pop. Her style reflects the softer side of music, but that doesn't mean it doesn't shake people up. Many who have purchased her album have labeled it addictive, and during solo performances she ha brought tears out of the most stoic of souls. Adrina has been writing songs almost as long as she can remember. Her first song was written on a rainy car ride home when she was seven. "All I can remember is looking through the foggy streaked window at little bursts of light outside in the pitch black sky, hearing the sound of the car's engine, and coming up with a song that brought me to tears that night. It was a song about a friend of mine who left our school without ever telling me goodbye. I think from that day on, I've always held a special place in my heart for melancholy songs."
Adrina's musical experience is varied, including a background in classical piano and theater. She just finished a full length album, "elusive", with producers Dave Bassett (producing credits with Lisa Loeb, Justincase, Joe Bonamassa, etc.) and Phil Swann (producing credits with Helen Slater, Phil Christie, etc.).
Although you can hear bits of classical influence in her piano playing on the album, it reflects many other influences as well. Delicate piano melodies and lush vocals weave in and out of each other, drifting amid the punchy bass and drum lines. Like paper-thin china, like sunrise on the grey ocean waves...Adrina's melodies captivate listeners with their distinct beauty.
