Winner of
the 17:th Final

More Than Seventeen
by:
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.
