‘E.D.E.N EP’ (Every Day, Every Night) is the incredible new release from multi talented US singer, songwriter and musician, Adrian Alan. Hailing from LA, developing his sound in New York City, New Orleans and Los Angeles, Adrian’s music oozes with charismatic pop-funk-soul sensibilities. As a versatile keyboard player, colourful arranger who boasts a highly distinctive vocal, his style is a concoction of Rhythm & Blues, Funk, contemporary Dance and saturated Soul.
‘E.D.E.N. EP’, produced by emerging producer talent David Ott, is a vibrant collection of songs that largely draw from Adrian’s own deeply personal experiences with women. These include funky upbeat ‘Set You Free’ (ft the legendary Leddie Garcia on percussion), a song about the magnetism of a crazy girl who was impossible to leave; the emotional ‘Angel’, a downtempo groove about a painful breakup and the emotional challenges thereafter. The infectious ‘Like No Other’, is an honest song about jealousy and insecurity, sporting a fantastic video produced by Facehead Media which has already gained a staggering 450k hits in the US! ‘She Creeps’ finds Adrian waxing lyrical about a verbally abusive boss, who would put him down for being ambitious about aspiring towards music; and the funk driven title track which celebrates life, ‘E.D.E.N’, produced by Taylor Graves (Thundercat, Dr. Dre, Kimbra, Leon Ware) are just some of Adrian’s stories on this stellar release. ‘E.D.E.N. EP’ demonstrates Adrian’s ability as an outstanding musician and a raw talent with class, vibrancy with a contemporary take on modern soulful music.
 “The vibe of ‘E.D.E.N.’ naturally shifted towards dance funk, ‘with a get up and feel it’ flavour, I think we are definitely on to something… I’m excited!” – Adrian Alan
