Nashville, Tennessee, often referred to as “Music City” has long been associated as the hot spot for country music, although in the midst of the hype, its rock ‘n roll scene has been on the rise and still growing for quite some time. In Fall 2009 the rock scene had witnessed many bands come and go, starving for a new band to grab their attention. Adalene was present and energized to step in and fill that void. Formed in October 2009, Adalene consists of members from top local and nationally signed acts from around the United Sates. Members include lead vocalist Brett Moyer originally from Ohio, lead guitarist Corey Rozzoni (ex- Burden Brothers) from Illinois, bass player Jonathan Stoye and rhythm guitarist/keyboardist Josh Mitchell both from Michigan, and drummer Jeremy Moore (ex- Faktion) from Texas. Says Josh, “We wouldn’t be the same without each individual member.”
With influences ranging from 70’s Rock to Hard Rock to Alternative Rock, it’s no wonder that their sound is reminiscent of those eras. Stylistically, Adalene has been compared to the Foo Fighters and Incubus. “Our singer actually sings. He doesn’t scream,” Corey says “We play rock music, but it has a funky kind of flare, so some of the beats have a dance feel. Even though it’s rock, it still has some movement. It’s not just straight ahead metal or anything like that. It’s all about being melodic.”
Adalene’s first performance took place at the renowned 12th and Porter in Nashville to a nearly sold out crowd. “It’s rare to see a band create such a buzz around their first concert”, says Justin Roddick (Owner of 12th and Porter) “but these guys delivered a great crowd and performance their first time around.” Even though it was the band’s first time performing together, the members were no strangers to the stage. Each member has done national and regional touring in past, while bringing their exceptional talent together creating the true talent most music enthusiasts have been missing. Engaging their audience with phenomenal stage presence, delivering a power-packed show and keeping their fan base broadening, this group is moving up… and fast!
The band continued to play out live around Nashville the remainder of 2009 while writing and preparing for their debut EP, “Night on Fire”. In Spring 2010, Adalene setup shop in the studio with producer Seth Goodman. The EP was recorded at OmniSound Studios in Nashville. The five-song disc is a launch pad of an original rock band ready to make their mark in rock music. “Night on Fire” was released May 8 with the CD release party following at 12th and Porter.
Since the release of the EP, the band is revved and ready to play out as much as possible. With a 2012 schedule that boasts big things, Adalene is heading back in the studio and plan to release an new EP in the summer of 2012. Nominated for “Best Live Rock Performance” for the 4th Annual Nashville Independent Music Awards and having shared the stage with many national acts within the short time of the bands inception, it’s impossible to stop their driving momentum.
