Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Hailing from Minneapolis, Adrianne Lenker is an authentic and passionate singer, songwriter and performer. Her debut CD, Stages Of The Sun, produced by Steve Hodge (Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Sting), was released on LucidTunes when AdriAnne was only 14. The title cut was a top 5 finalist for song of the year in the 2005 Independent Music Awards in the Singer/Songwriter category. The Lenker song, "My Bliss," was a finalist in the 2005 International Songwriting Competition. Four tracks from the album were featured on MTV's The Hills in 2007 and 2008.
Lenker's follow-up CD/DVD, Live at the Southern, was recorded just before her 15th birthday in July 2006 at the Southern Theater in Minneapolis. Her third release, Then The Rain Came will be released in 2009.
Tim Cain, a writer with the Herald & Review (Illinois), wrote about the singer/songwriter after hearing her live show:
"I saw her perform in Chicago with an audience largely consisting of musicians. She held this group of professionals enraptured, and we all found one thing unbelievable and asked each other the same question as one voice: 'Is she really 14?' Apparently so, and she's a little like Jewel, except tougher, and a little like Liz Phair, but not quite as edgy. She writes a heckofa song."
