French-native singer-songwriter ADELINE released her debut EP ‘Like It That Way’ on the 9th September 2022. The EP is filled with infectious melodies and classic pop hooks, her style is described as pop with a touch of folk and soul.
Her multicultural background, being raised in Tokyo, Geneva, Singapore, Copenhagen, and Montreal, is a foundational part of her identity and explains why she is constantly drawn to variety and experimentation in her creative process. Born from classical musician parents, the songstress was exposed to music at an early age learning the flute, piano, voice, and the acoustic guitar. She sang in several choirs, before moving to solo performances in her teens for various musical events, conferences and theatre performances and exploring songwriting by the age of thirteen.
“This EP has a bright and vibrant sound. As my first cohesive piece, I wanted it to best represent where I’m at as an artist and what I stand for. Hence, this collection is colourful, empowering & celebratory! My title track “Like it that way” is very dear to me, as it speaks about mental health and our daily battle to choose positivity, love & joy internally, regardless of what our external circumstances may look like. I think this message is crucial and timely, and it’s incredibly special to me, to leverage pop music in order to bring an empowering & uplifting message.”
I truly believe inspiration comes from anything and everywhere, IF we stay open, receptive and aware. Obviously, I draw a lot from my own experiences and how I navigate situations, but I’ve also found that I gather ideas and storylines simply from listening to the people around me: my family, my friends, what they are going through, and at a larger scale, what’s going on in the world in our current culture & social climate.” ADELINE
