It’s pretty standard to hear a phrase like “the long awaited album” in a press release from a musician, but in this case I know it’s true!  I wrote a post about a year ago talking about how Adrina Thorpe was one of the first musicians I met back when I joined MySpace in ’06 and at that time last year she was raising funds for recording her new album.  So yeah, I’ve been waiting for this one for a while. :)

The California singer-songwriter and pianist released her sophomore album, Halflight and Shadows, a little less than a month ago and it was worth the wait!  Not only is each song great on it’s own, but as a whole, if you listen to the songs in order, the album has a subtle implied story of a character starting in a dark and broken place and growing through transformations to embrace light and beauty.

Adrina’s soaring vocals and deft fingerings would fit perfectly on a playlist with other piano divas like Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos. I offer this video as proof – it’s from a live performance she did a couple years ago, but it’s a great quality vid of the song Did You Think from her debut album Elusive.

If you’re reading this elsewhere, you may need to come to the actual blog to see the video.

Be sure to check out Adrina’s website for song samples, more info, lyrics and to buy both of her albums!

I hope by now your appetite is whetted to tune in to the Lyrical Venus Radio Hour from 9-10am Central on Tuesday and find out more about Adrina in the interview! She’ll be calling in at 9:30, but tune in at 9 to hear some brand new preview tunes from Imogen Heap and Ingrid Michaelson’s upcoming albums and songs from artists soon to be interviewed on Lyrical Venus.  KRUU-LP 100.1 FM here in town, online anywhere!
