Adron, nom de guerre of young Adrienne McCann, is rapidly being recognized as one of the most uniquely gifted songwriters and vocalists of this generation. In 2011, her newest album Organismo was voted by Atlanta’s Creative Loafing magazine as #1 Album of the Year. Adron’s music seamlessly blends Classical harmony with the playfulness of ‘60s Brazilian Tropicàlia, the earnestness and sentiment of songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Harry Nilsson, and the cerebral sincerity of the hymn song. “By combining elements of surreal, personal narratives and her quasi-Brazilian-style strum, Adron’s songs were at once baroque and hypnotic.” –Creative Loafing
Adron’s music is infused with an international texture and a remarkably vintage, yet highly original and polished modern sound. While crafting songs with acumen and maturity, she also possesses an understanding of harmony both keen and innocent. She adds to her songs a unique array of embellishments such as birdcalls and other vocalizations, and sings eloquently in three languages. 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. “If you don’t like her music, you probably don’t like sunny days either, or rainbows, or the first sight of the sea on a trip to the beach, or the sounds of birds after the rain.” –Shakai
In addition to an extensive performance schedule, she is an avid artist and displays the same extraordinary deftness and creativity in her visual art that she does in her music. She is adamant that all her album artwork and merchandise designs be her own, including the delicately beaded statuette and mask used for Organismo. Outside her own creative endeavors, 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 Organismo tentatively entitled Mãos.
