Happy Friday! Here's a video of Adrien's cover of Tom Waits "I Hope I Don't Fall in Love With You". This is a solo performance in Woodstock done in one-take using the 8mm Vintage Camera App on the iPhone. Enjoy, like and share! http://youtu.be/lCQM-pnSkfk

I'll be debuting songs from my forth coming album as well as old favorites.
Brad Hinton kicks off the show with a set of his own brand of jaunty old-soul alt-country blues, and will join me in my set singing sweet harmonies and playing various instruments.
Then you're in for a treat when Thom McCarthy follows Brad with a set of songs that sound like they were born out of a love triangle between Roy Orbison, Django Reinhardt and The Mighty Sparrow.
I'm always blown away by the level of musical and songcrafting talent in my native Philadelphia and this is a show not to be missed!
Adrien joins A.C. Newman's band for two shows in support of Neko Case on 9/25 at the Electric Factory (Philadelphia, PA) and 9/26 at Radio City Music Hall (NYC). Unlike the mulit-member pop band arrangements fans are used to seeing him with, this will be a special stripped-down acoustic show including husband and wife blues-folk-rock duo Mike + Ruthy, Owen Biddle on acoustic bass and Adrien on vocals.
You may recognize A.C. Newman as the leader of the Vancouver-based indie rock super-group The New Pornographers (for which Neko Case was a front member before her solo career). On top of being a songwriter and band leader extraordinaire, he is also a pretty funny guy. Watch the Official video for "I'm Not Talking" from his latest solo album Shut Down the Streets.
Tickets for both shows are available now through TicketMaster:
9/25 - Electric Factory, Philadelphia, PA Tickets
9/26 - Radio City Music Hall, NYC Tickets
Tickets for The Summer Hoot are on sale now!

We recently visited the folks at Kettle Pot Tracks in Lafayette Hill (Philadelphia) and recorded "Heartless" and "In Too Deep" for their "On the Hill" video series. We had such a blast playing in the space, a room in an old house with natural wood floors that make way for other worldly acoustics. Watch them here: http://onthehillseries.tumblr.com/post/49386492816/adrien-reju-i-heard-about-adrien-from-a-friend
Coming May 1st to On the Hill Video Series at Kettle Pot Tracks: a LIVE performance video of "Crazy" and more... Click the link for a sneak peek (Track #4).
