This is hardcore Buckaroo music. You won’t find “camp cookie” and “pretty little horses” in Buckaroogirl, Adrian’s music.
Instead, you’ll find the reality of ranch life, bad horses, coyote cattle, tough men and tougher women with liberal amounts of roping (for the poly deficient). Adrian’s music reflects this unromantic but harsh reality in every Nevada desert soaked note and phrase.
The CD was released at the 2008 Elko Poetry Gathering and has been tearing up the countryside since then. Winter Blues, the third track on the CD reminds you just how cold it gets horseback, and has been in the Indie Internet Radio top 40 since the week it came out (see SongPlanet.com). The final track named for the mountain range that runs through North East Nevada—and the Big Springs ranch upon which Adrian lived as a child, is featured on the recently released documentary film, Los Primeros.
These songs come from Adrian’s experiences working cattle with her family on ranches in Nevada, California, Canada, Utah and throughout the west, as well as from the stories she’s been told by other cowboys she knows.
You can read more about Adrian and her music in this month’s (February 2009) Western Horseman Magazine. Here is some of what is being said about the music.
Oh my God! The very first thing is the woman's voice, and she's incredible!

The singer's voice knocks you out right off the bat with its natural down-home bluesy quality and distinctive vibrato. I would love to see this band live.

I'm a fan! Really powerful vocal. High energy. Wow! Top marks all around.

…Adrian…writes and sings about her ranch experiences and the cowboy way of life. She had a voice that seemed many years older than her age; it was impressively strong and clear.
…she appears to have extreme talent and a truly unique blend of rock and country with an almost “new genre all it’s own” sound and image, and she sings pretty darn well, too!
