Talk about starting with a bang. Adaline achieves near Judy Garland levels of melodrama on “That’s What You Do Best”, the stately electro-torch song that opens her latest album, "Modern Romantics". But she doesn’t get there without boxing your ears with wiggy sax and unhinged guitar solos (by Hawksley Workman). It’s what Adaline does best; elegant structures that happen to be wildly hooky. Since it's release the album has received rave reviews including a nomination for "Pop Recording of the Year" at the Western Canadian Music Awards in 2012. CBC Radio 3 calls the album "A breathtaking journey of the imagination". Adaline has performed across canada with esteemed colleagues Dan Mangan, Hannah Georgas, Blonde Redhead and The Sheepdogs. She recently worked on the score for the new Bret Easton Ellis film "The Canyons" starring Lindsay Lohan with Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene.
