Adrian’s fourth album, Desert Dwelling Mama, is a heartfelt and emotional translation of life in the West through the bluesy sounds and soulful songwriting.
Adrian has become known for throughout the cowboy, and now outlaw country, music genres. This album finds the young singer/songwriter emerging as more than the 14-year-old cowboy crooner we first met through her debut album Highway 80.
Blossoming into a mature writer, young woman, and performer, the album was co-produced by Adrian and longtime mentor and recording studio owner Craig Schumacher. The emotional and brassy tones the pair produced were recorded at Wavelab Studios in Tucson, Arizona, with musicians who let their inner cowboy surface as they played. Combining heartfelt and hard-hitting lyrics and the throwback sounds of bluesy guitar riffs and an unbridled originality, Adrian’s new songs will reverberate with Ian Tyson and Tom Russell fans as easily as they do the followers of The Dead South and Nathaniel Rateliff.
Desert Dwelling Mama is a ravenous trip through the fallout pain that abuse and violence can inflict on a young woman’s life, and on the love and lifestyle that can mend the holes it leaves.
