AdrienneO is a female-fronted electro-rock trio from Colorado influenced by artists like Metric, Florence and the Machine, OneRepublic, and Miike Snow. Members include vocalist/bassist Adrienne Osborn, now a vocal coach but previously a world-ranked semi-pro waterskier and a dot-com-era software developer; guitarist/producer/engineer Justin Long, once signed to Atlantic Records with his band No Address, which released a single that stood at #11 on the Billboard charts for 22 weeks; and Craig DeLeone, drummer and multi-instrumentalist who once rode a tour bus with famously antagonistic drummer Buddy Rich.
AdrienneO’s sound features alternatively seductive and powerful vocals, reminding listeners of Blondie. Justin’s guitar playing evokes the Edge while he retains alt-rock grit. A clean, hooked-up rhythm section and subtle but creative use of electronic textures and loops all come together to allow the band to deliver well-written, well-arranged electro-rock songs with one of the freshest sounds in Colorado.
Fans say that the band’s “maturity and level of polish stand out above those other bands.” They also comment on “how big of a wall of sound [AdrienneO] is able to create with just three people.”
AdrienneO’s first single, “Electric Force Field,” was picked up for play on LA-based internet radio station Indie104.com, and the second, “Innocence,” was remixed by DJ duo Cloud Mechanics. AdrienneO is one of the artists featured on the 2013 BolderBoulder compilation CD, with radio airplay of their single “Two and Two” on KBCO 97.3 starting on May 10. The band’s first EP, mixed by John Kurzweil (producer of Creed, Puddle of Mudd, Jewell, Eagle Eye Cherry) is expected out in June 2013.
