UK Country Pop trio The Adelaides, featuring Paris Georgia, Alicia Alba and Abi Phillips, are already creating a serious buzz. A young band, in every sense, The Adelaides nonetheless hark back to the old time Country traditions of talent, truth and integrity; these girls just want to entertain. The Adelaides are three incredible singer-songwriters who pack a serious collective punch with their original compositions such as the fourth coming debut single‘Good Love’ due to be released in early June.
The Adelaides have a management deal with Simon Porter at Duroc Media, the home ofStatus Quo and Bonnie Tyler, and were taken on by Neil Warnock of United Talent Group, who is personally representing them. This year the band will be delighted to perform at the pinnacle of the Country Music year, the CMA Fest in Nashville in June, having also played shows on each day of the C2C Festival, as they did in 2018 too. CMA Fest marks a return toNashville for The Adelaides who recently completed a packed itinerary of gigs, recording and writing sessions, media commitments, showcase performances and much more in the beating heart of the Country Music world.
Right from day one, the band have proved themselves to be a formidable live act, wowing hardcore country audiences wherever they go. In October 2019, the band will once again support Charles Esten on his UK tour [having done so in January]. The Adelaides not only perform a support slot but also serve as Charles’ band for a segment off his show! As well as at C2C, the band have proved themselves at events like the Country Music Week show at The Borderline and Hard Rock Country at the Hard Rock Café and have performed support slots for Catherine McGrath, Megan McKenna, Ashley Campbell & Mo Pitney, Andy Brown and Key West. Those live shows had gone fantastically well and The Adelaides went on to perform at very notable festivals in summer 2018; The British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park on the same bill as Michael Bublé and Van Morrison, Ramblin’ Man Festival, Cornbury, Nashville Meets London, Black Deer Festival and at the Long Road Festival. This year will see plenty more festival appearances including The British Country Music Festival on 14th September.
Guitarist Paris Georgia is a prolific and creative vocalist who has taken part in songwriting sessions in Nashville, and performed at the city’s legendary Bluebird venue. An engaging and confident performer with scores of gigs under her belt, she has also sung solo at Wembley Arena at a charity event. The baby of the group, Alicia Alba has sung all her life and yet came to The Adelaides from the world of Acting and Dance. Whilst she loved drama school, the focus on musical theatre interested her less as her own tastes were rooted in soul and blues. Hooking up with The Adelaides allows her to indulge her love of music and performance, and she turned down appearing on ‘The Voice’ to concentrate on the group. Abi Phillips is an accomplished guitarist / singer / songwriter who has been writing original material since her early teens. A well-known TV face, Abi originally won her Hollyoaks role by writing a song called ‘Missing You’ which was broadcast during one of her story lines. Having performed at well-known events including BBC Children in Need, Moonwalk at Hyde Park and T4 On The Beach, Abi has a wealth of live experience, which she plans to put to full use on her journey with The Adelaides.
A truly exciting live act, the girls’ blend of self-penned originals, leavened with a couple of well-chosen covers, is winning them new fans wherever they go. Now focusing even more closely on the writing side, The Adelaides have a set of great tracks in the bag – with the likes of ‘Reckless’, ‘No Survivors’, ‘What Your Heart Would Say', ‘Jelly Baby’ and ‘Jack Daniels’ being thoroughly road-tested. Into the mix they often bring a track like Miley Cyrus’ ‘Nothing Breaks Like a Heart’ or the Maren Morris song ‘My Church’, given a creative twist by The Adelaides.
Already having turned heads and been welcomed on stages and radio stations across the country [they have been featured as Band Of The Month by BBC Introducing], The Adelaides are fired up and optimistic, and well they might be; watch these girls fly!
