Resembling the sounds of Kate Bush, Depeche Mode and Young Marble Giants, comes southern California based electronic-recording and worship artist, Adryelle. She is a multi-instrumentalist and producer with many talents, including a DIY attitude that can be seen in her self-produced music, and videos which she has created/directed/shot and edited herself. She is also a visual artist which she creates ink and pastel drawings, paintings and illustrations. Her music is a mix of dreampop and synthwave within the electronic genre, with a touch retro/low-fi mimicking the early 80’s. She also performs solo sets with just her acoustic guitar and uses a loop pedal during her live performances.
She has written for Comcast commercials that were aired on BET and Home & Family for a drug rehab program called Teen Challenge. Her songs have also been heard on the radio, various internet radio stations, Spotify, Apple Music and iTunes. Her first album was released under the moniker Black Rose Cinema, and was soon picked up by Canadian Christian industrial/goth net-label, Flaming Fish. The album went on to draw the interest of DJ’s in Germany, Italy, and Norway, before she changed her name to her current pseudonym, Adryelle.
Originally from Baltimore, MD, Adryelle moved to Los Angeles in 2016 where she worked with a non-profit organization traveling nationally, living on the road for 1 year. She had the opportunity to speak to thousands of students around the country about bullying, self-worth and goals, as well as her personal music story, motivating them to go for there own goals and dreams. After one of the performances, a student reported to a teacher about being suicidal and therefore wanted to seek help. This, as well as her own experiences inspired Adryelle to want to help more people who are struggling with an array of tough issues.
Adryelle is a surviver of childhood sexual abuse and trauma. Throughout her teens she dealt with depression and self-harm. Through her relationship with Jesus she has been able to go through a process of healing. She believes that everyone can be healed of any past traumas and abuse. Music has been a healing outlet for her as a means of expression.
Adryelle has toured nationally, in cafes, bars, and house shows, also doing private events and street performances. She draws her inspiration from her relationship with God, as well as nature and her national and international travels. She currently leads worship for a surf ministry in Orange County and also goes into rehab centers, and shelters to perform for the residents in those areas, using music and her personal testimony as a tool to encourage and bring hope, healing and encouragement to others.
