Woodstock-based singer-songwriter Adrien Reju has coined her own brand of indie-folk-retro-rock with her strong, clear Patsy Cline-esque voice and old-soul quality songs with contemporary hooks. Fellow peer and singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata says "she
is like a bird from another planet who can see directly into your heart".
Now she’s expanding her art with the release of her latest studio project, "Strange Love & the Secret Language" an album being billed as “a collection of unconventional love songs". Recorded in Woodstock with the production duo The Elegant Too (P. Diddy, Yoko Ono, John Cale) the album offers a lush, deeply textured pop record that has caught the attention of WDST and WXPN (Philadelphia), and finds Reju in the company of fellow Woodstock artists A.C. Newman (The New Pornographers) and Marco Benevento. In addition to her striking original songs, Reju also covers tunes by David Bowie, Elliot Smith, and Prince.
Adrien has released, as well, a 5-song EP, Lucky Ones (2012), and a full length LP, A Million Hearts (2009) to critical acclaim with regular rotation on WXPN's World Cafe with David Dye. She has toured the US and Canada appearing as an opener and band member/backup singer with artists including Rachael Yamagata, A.C. Newman (The New Pornographers), Neko Case, Amos Lee, Gillian Welch, Linda Rondstadt and David Bromberg. Her songs "Heartless" and “The Waiting Room” were featured in the Hallmark movie "Flower Girl".
