That the Atlanta-based Adron’s star is rising is no surprise to anyone who has heard her latest full-length release, Organismo, a record whose breezy whimsy belies its significant songcraft. Beneath the whistles and birdcalls, Adron displays a distinct pop sensibility that she attributes to a common source.
“The Beatles have been with me since before I [took my first breath],” she says.
Building on this firm foundation, Adron discovered Tropicália music in high school when she came across an Os Mutantes LP at Decatur’s Wuxtry Records. “I began to feel very much at home in that style of music,” she says. “It reached me more deeply than any music I’d known since The Beatles.”
The discovery dovetailed with the beginnings of her career as a performer. She began to weave Brazilian styles of guitar and percussion into her music, eventually teaching herself to speak and sing both Portuguese and French.
