Album Available in stores and on iTunes November 6th/Music Video Premiering Soon
Just back from the road touring with her other band, Saddle Creek act, Art in Manila; Dri is ready to captivate the music community with the release of her first solo album “Smoke Rings”.
“Adrianne Verhoeven” has spent her music career lending her vocal and keyboard chops to bands like The Anniversary, Art in Manila, and Fourth of July but “Dri” as Adrianne is known to her friends has spent her 20’s seeing the world, falling in and out of love, getting lost in the hazy days and buzzed nights of Lawrence, Kansas and dreaming all the while of stepping out and rocking the mic on her own. Her seductive debut “Smoke Rings” is just that – a collection of kisses (and kiss-offs) blown to past and present loves; a swirl of stoned immediacy with feelings and melodies coming to life in loose perfection. A female musician in the mix since a she was a teenager, Dri has seen and done it all and the songs of “Smoke Rings” work through what mattered, what matters, what a girls wants, and what a girl needs. A departure in sound from her previous work “Smoke Rings” is a diverse soulful affair taking influence from the classic sounds of Motown and Stax as well as from modern R&B sounds.
Range Life Records will be introducing the 11 new album tracks on their website, one a day for 11 days. There will also be video introductions, performance footage, and the premiere of Brendan Costello’s video for “You Know I Tried”. In addition, there will be free downloads, remixes, interviews, the entire works.
Her debut is will be the third national release for the up-and-coming Lawrence, Kansas imprint Range Life Records, also home to White Flight, Fourth of July, and 1,000,000 Light Years.
