Adrienne Osborn and her partner, Justin Leighton Long, both working musicians and music teachers in Denver, met in a top 40 cover band in 2011.
From 2012-2018 the band played over 100 shows, starting at Lion’s Lair and Herman’s Hideaway and ending up at the UMS, Coors Field, and the Gothic, Bluebird and Fox Theatres.
In 2018, the band took a hiatus.
2022 brought the first new music from Adrienne O in years. “What What What” and “You Don’t Want My Love” let loose with jangly guitars and edgy vocals that don’t try to be pretty. Both songs spent months on the Colorado 2022 and 2023 Playlists and the Colorado Women Playlist, curated by Chris Kresge of FM105.5.
