Artist Spotlight: Adele.


Adele, born Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, is an English soul singer/songwriter. Her debut album, 19, was released in the UK January 28, 2008 and reached No. 2 on the UK charts after the first week. The album blends jazz and soul and is very reminiscent to the music of Amy Winehouse.

I have to be honest, I just recently listened to her album..say about a couple of hours ago? I do not know why I never listened to it (late pass, maybe?). Now that I have, I must say that I am in love. No seriously, I'm in love. It's so refreshing to hear wonderful music from such a young artist. When listening to her album, I did not skip one song, and when listening to an album I'm known to skip a couple of songs here and there. Her album is just that good. Alicia Keys even has a playlist on iTunes which includes her, "Make You Feel My Love."

Oh, Adele, where have you been all my life?

If you're unfamiliar with her, check out her video for "Chasing Pavements."

Maybe her album will be the next treat. Look out for it.

I have been listening to this album for a few months, and I too, am in love. I also like Duffy, another refreshing sound.

I've been a fan of this artist since she surfaced, she is awesome. A lot of talent seems to be coming from over here, Adele is one of them. Her album is being re-released soon though, I think there's a live album going to be packaged with it.
