French-Caribbean singer, bassist, and producer Adeline (pronounced ad-uh-leen) spent most of 2020 soothing our frazzled nerves with her retro-futurist take on funk, R&B, and soul, dropping 21 new songs during the pandemic, including 2 EPs, a fire hot duet with Kamauu called “Mango”, and numerous other collaborations and guest appearances with artists including Pastel, Kraak & Smack, Blue Lab Beats, Jonathan Singletary, and up-and-coming French rapper Lisko. With hustle and shine (and cautious optimism) of a classic NYC immigrant, she kicked off the new year with A COLORS SHOW premier of “Whisper My Name”, and has plenty more new music coming in 2021.
Adeline also produces music under the moniker Nightshade with partner Morgan Wiley (Midnight Magic, Jessica 6). For their first act, they co-wrote and produced the sun-drenched summer jam “Mango” for Atlantic Records artist Kamauu, which also features Adeline on vocals and bass.
Originally introduced to the world as the front woman for the nu-disco band Escort, Adeline has toured globally, appearing with Anderson .Paak, Lee Fields, Chromeo, Big Freedia, Natalie Prass, and more, and has performed at Afropunk, Funk on the Rocks (Red Rocks), Winter Jazz Fest, Celebrate Brooklyn! in Prospect Park, and Central Park Summerstage. When she’s not in the studio or touring her own music, Adeline also plays bass in CeeLo Green’s band.
