From coast to coast Adena Atkins brings her singular artistry to song. A recipe for her music might read like this: begin with lyrics that could double as poetry, flesh them out in wildly imaginative arrangements, and channel them through a keystone soprano. The result is as both distinctive and essential.
A graduate of Berklee College of Music, this California native has also studied with author Natalie Goldberg and at the California Institute of the Arts. Atkins is a recipient of the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts' merit award. Within a year of moving to Seattle, Atkins released her solo debut The Slowest Curve, a seasonal song cycle which has received glowing reviews. As of this writing, she's hard at work creating a new album with industry veteran Angel Angelov.
It’s clear that much can be expected of Atkins. With the appeal of her voice, the honesty of her writing, and the scope of her music, this artist captivates. Still, what ultimately sets Atkins apart is not any of these elements. What sets her apart is depth, depth of vision and more importantly, her deep commitment to sharing that vision with the world.

Adena Atkins' debut The Slowest Curve is a seasonal song cycle set in the morning in front of a window. It "...blurs the line between poetry and pop song, with a touch of impressionism and a lot of attention to details.” ~ Andrea Caccesse, I Still Sing AlongBuy on iTunes Buy on Amazon Buy on CD Baby
