Adrian grew up in southern Illinois where folk, bluegrass, and classic rock created the soundtrack to every summer festival that brought his small town together. Those childhood influences manifested in Adrian’s own music when he began his songwriting career. He released his debut album Better Son in 2010 while living in Baltimore. Performing around the East Coast and Midwest, Adrian has brought his confessional story-telling to music lovers across the country. Now settled in Louisville, KY, he is releasing his second LP titled Rise Anew — a spiritual journey of highs and lows set to a modern band with an Americana heartbeat. The talented folks at Resonate Recordings took on the project wholeheartedly and dialed in a lush singer—songwriter album with some of Adrian's most personal stories gathered into one collection.
