ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
”Compelling Southern California singer/songwriter/pianist Adrina Thorpe offers mesmerizing down-tempo rock-folk-pop. Though you may detect echoes of Tori Amos and other musical icons, Thorpe's lovely voice and profoundly moving songs enable her to carve a niche all her own. "Round the Bend" is an exquisite, soaring creation. Thorpe appears to be a talent on the brink of a major breakthrough.” –Palo Alto Daily News

"Thorpe's mastery of the keys is comparable to Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones, while her breathy, airy vocal style is reminiscent of Enya and Leigh Nash of Sixpence None the Richer. ...Adrina Thorpe is destined for bigger and better things and could well lead the next generation of pianists/storytellers." MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE

"an impressive debut album, packed with thoughtful
songs that are beautifully written, beautifully arranged,
beautifully performed and beautifully sung. Drawing deep
from the well of a host of great singer-songwriters, from
Carole King through to Tori Amos, Thorpe succeeds without
ever freefalling into the all too common trap of imitation. Rather, the album portrays a noble interplay of heritage and influence, and it's to startling effect. ...With lots more songs where these came from, Thorpe looks set to have a long and prosperous career." -thetrousers.co.uk

Adrina Thorpe's album, "elusive", contains 10 original songs written by Adrina Thorpe and produced by Dave Bassett (credits with Lisa Loeb, Evan & Jaron, etc.) and Phil Swann (credits with Lee Ann Womack, Helen Slater, etc.) "Adrina's going to make some noise in this racket everybody. Listen to her music and tell me I'm wrong...I dare you." ~Phil Swann

*******

Singer/songwriter and pianist, Adrina Thorpe, is a refreshing sound in adult alternative pop. Her style reflects the softer side of music, with a haunting voice and a delicate touch at the piano.

Adrina has been writing songs almost as long as she can remember. Her first song was written on a rainy car ride home when she was six. "All I can remember is looking through the foggy streaked window at little bursts of light outside in the pitch black sky, hearing the sound of the car's engine, and coming up with a song that brought me to tears that night. It was a song about a friend of mine who left our school without ever saying goodbye."

From that day on, Adrina's love of the more introspective melancholy song was established, as Adrina's list of favorite artists goes to show... Adrina has been inspired by artists on all ends of the musical spectrum, including Sarah McLachlan (Adrina's all time favorite artist), Coldplay, Five for Fighting, Tori Amos, Paula Cole, Dido, Evanescence and Chantal Kreviazuk. However her sound still retains its uniqueness. This may quite possibly be attributed to the fact that during Adrina's formative years she was completely immersed in classical music and musical theater. Adrina spent several years competing and winning several piano competitions, but it was truly the love of writing and singing that held a special place in her heart. Taking a songwriting class in Los Angeles, her instructor and classmates encouraged her to put out an album.

This album has gained an incredible underground following. Podshow.com says “with the voice of an "With the voice of an angel, Adrina's debut cd "Elusive" has kept her constantly in the Top 10 podsafe played songs.” The album has been licensed by Lifetime Cable and Warner Bros in film, tv, and online and has also been licensed by a number of independent filmmakers.

The album also recently got Adrina Thorpe noticed by DJ Shah and Armin Van Buuren (ranked #1 DJ in world) of Armada records. Adrina was asked to write a song for Armin Van Buuren's "A State of Trance 2007" CD with DJ Shah whose last collaboration was done with Sarah Mclachlan when he remixed Mclachlan's "Wintersong" album. Adrina Thorpe's collaboration with DJ Shah on Armin Van Buuren's album, "Who will find me" was recently commented on by Armin Van Buuren as being his favorite song of the year!

Adrina's debut album, "elusive" is full of intricate, poignant, honest, and gentle emotion. The initial release is almost sold out as we speak. Delicate piano melodies and lush vocals weave in and out of each other, drifting amid the punchy bass and drum lines. Wild and tame, strong and simple... the songs find their way into the deepest crevices of the heart. Like paper-thin china...like sunrise on the gray ocean waves...Adrina's melodies captivate listeners with their distinct beauty.

Nothing Short Of Graceful.
Adrina requested an add from me on my MySpace, and I'm so glad she did it. She is a truly remarkable artist on the rise. Upon first listen, without the knowledge that she is in the midst of becoming the next Sarah McLachlan and the like, you may already believe she's at that point. Her music is mystic, ethereal and graceful. Delicate vocals, inspiring lyrics and absolutely beautiful melodies pull you in for a well rounded listen. One of this world's true artists. Thanks Adrina!

Scott

"Did you think" on movie soundtrack captured me.
My thanks to the reviewers of the movie "My name is Sarah" who connected me with this wonderful singer, Adrina Thorpe. Two of her songs are on the soundtrack--great accompaniment for a great love story--and her album ("Elusive") maintains that level of beauty.

Scott Hanley

Absolutely fantastic...7 of these songs made my mp3 favorites list!
...and the other 3 are real good too! It has been a long time since I have been jazzed about so many songs on one disc. Adrina has an amazing ability to take you on 3 or 4 minute journeys and surround you with a voice and melodic feel that is near perfection.

Emily

Marcia

Alex Tang

Excellent!
I first heard of Adrina on DJ Shah\'s music where she was featured. I thought her voice was great and decided to check out her work. Upon listening to her voice and music, I was hooked and decided to buy her CD. I\'ve recommended her work to friends and family and they love it.

Cody

The Most Outstanding Album Of This Genre
Adrina Thorpe is gonna rise above them all. This whole album is by far, my favourite now. I hope she comes out with more/new music soon. I wish to see her live as well, until then I can listen to this masterpiece. I suggest that since you looked at this review, you add this album to your cart, you won't regret it!

Philipp Blümelhuber

Highly recommended
I have never heard anything before from Adrina, because I am from Austria (Europe), till I bought the Cd "Armin van Buuren - A state of Trance". There was a track witch the beautiful vocals of Adrina, so I wanted to hear more of her and searched for her in the internet.

I only can say, I love this Cd, eventhough I normally listen to Techno and Trance. Her voice is amazing and also the lyrics are.
