Winner of week 185 Country Music

Lights Out in Tupelo (make a search for the song to listen)
by Dan May and Stephen Patti

Singer-songwriter Dan May's career path has taken more twists and turns than a corkscrew in a hurricane. He's worked as a grave-digger, television cameraman, short-order cook, nuclear missile security guard, sold clothing in a big and tall men's store, driven an ice cream truck, delivered furniture, wrote feature stories for a daily newspaper, unloaded trucks at an amusement park, and labored in a greenhouse. All before the age of 25.
Then, while studying music composition in college, he inadvertently stumbled into an opera career that would see him singing with opera companies across the U.S. and Canada, and leaving a promising future as a singer-songwriter behind. Cut to 15 years later, and a vocal-chord surgery that left him no longer able to meet the demands of opera. Talk about a blessing in disguise. He is now back where he belongs, writing and performing his own songs, delivered in a voice that is as unique as it is interesting.
A composer as well as a singer/songwriter Dan has recently made the successful transition from classical to pop music. Released in April, his debut CD, "Once Was Red" has fast become a Philadelphia radio favorite. Live performances of the CD will begin in December. As a composer, Dan's pieces have also been performed by dance companies and choral groups .
In his opera career, Dan performed with opera companies across the U.S and Canada, including Opera Company of Philadelphia, Cleveland Opera, Mississippi Opera, Mobile Opera, Greater Buffalo Opera, Opera Delaware, Opera Columbus, The Grand Teton Music Festival, Pine Mountain Music Festival, the Metropolitan Opera Guild, Spoleto USA, Banff Opera, Glimmerglass Opera and others. He received his Bachelor of Arts/Vocal Performance Degree from The Ohio State University and his Artist diploma from The Academy of Vocal Arts.
His NYC performances have included singing in The Hudson Theater, The John Jay Theater, Miller Theater and the Guggenheim Museum Theater.
Between his opera and pop careers, Dan performed with Montreal contemporary dance company, Coleman-Lemieux, in the World Premiere of "Convoy PQ 17" in St. Petersburg, Russia and the North American Premiere in Victoria, British Columbia. Dan's debut CD, Once Was Red, (April 2005) features infectious pop melodies and clever lyrics that are sometimes tongue-in-cheek, sometimes filled with longing and loss, but always intelligent. From the bluegrass romp of "Lights Out in Tupelo," and the swampy drawl of "It Ain't You, to the gypsy-rock Latin groove of "Enjoy," the thirteen tracks are highlighted by beautiful layered harmonies, with melodies and lyrics that maintain their integrity from beginning to end. And one thing is for sure. It ain't opera.

Winner of
the 17:th Final

More Than Seventeen
Adrina Thorpe

Singer/songwriter and pianist, Adrina Thorpe, is a refreshing sound in adult alternative pop. Her style reflects the softer side of music, but that doesn�t mean it doesn�t shake people up. With a haunting voice and delicate touch at the piano, Adrina captures every audience and sends them on an emotion filled journey with her heartfelt lyrics.

Adrina has been writing songs almost as long as she can remember. Her first song was written on a rainy car ride home when she was six. "All I can remember is looking through the foggy streaked window at little bursts of light outside in the pitch black sky, hearing the sound of the car's engine, and coming up with a song that brought me to tears that night. It was a song about a friend of mine who left our school without ever saying goodbye." From that day on, Adrina�s love of the more introspective melancholy song was established, as Adrina�s list of favorite artists goes to show�

Adrina has been inspired by artists on all ends of the musical spectrum, including Sarah McLachlan, Coldplay, Five for Fighting, Tori Amos, Paula Cole, Dido, Evanescence and Chantal Kreviazuk, however her sound still retains its uniqueness. This may quite possibly be attributed to the fact that during Adrina�s formative years she was completely immersed in classical music and musical theater. Her debut CD is filled with delicate piano melodies and lush vocals weaving in and out of each other, drifting amid the punchy bass and drum lines. Like paper-thin china�like sunrise on the gray ocean waves�Adrina's melodies captivate listeners with their distinct beauty.
