Adrienne O is energetic yet thoughtful indie pop. Vocalist Adrienne Osborn, with her wide-ranging vocal chops, is often likened to both Blondie and Natalie Merchant. She left behind careers as a national champion waterskier and as a software developer to focus on being vocal coach and musician a decade ago.
Originally a trio with Adrienne on bass, since 2015 the band has been a six-piece band with a greater emphasis on polished vocal harmonies and the synth layers that have always inspired Adrienne. The band and its music have been featured on KTCL 93.3 Locals Only, 107x Project Local, KCOL 94.9FM, The Colorado Sound, Channel 8 TV’s Denver Loft Sessions, Literati Records podcasts, Callywood Radio, multiple KGNU Innervision Top 30 Countdowns, and the 2013 BolderBOULDER Bootlegs CD. A remix of a track from their first EP, “Someone Like Me” was placed in 2016 feature-length film A Remarkable Life.
Starting in 2017, the band began offering a duo lineup for booking smaller shows. Adrienne and Justin Long (guitar) play chilled-out, vibey versions of trip-hop, synthpop, and pop songs with guitar, keys, and percussion with looping and harmonies.
Highlights include shows at Coors Field, the Gothic Theatre, the Bluebird Theatre, the Fox Theatre, the Hard Rock Cafe, the Soiled Dove, City Hall Amphitheatre, Nissi’s, the Hi-Dive, and the Walnut Room; winning the 2016 Colorado Rock Awards in the Alt-Pop Performance category; and playing festivals such as South Park and the UMS.
