Adalene doesn’t defy boundaries when it comes to rock music. They’re simply not an average rock band, but they’re also not atypical. Comprised of five members, each a valuable contribution to the band, Adalene knows how to have a good time while presenting a loud, high-energy show to their fans.


All members currently reside in Nashville, Tennessee. Lead vocalist Brett Moyer is originally from Ohio, lead guitarist Corey Rozzoni is from Texas, bass player Jonathan Stoye is from Michigan, rhythm guitarist/keyboardist Josh Mitchell is from Michigan, and drummer Johannes Greer is a native of Tennessee. Says Josh, “We wouldn’t be the same without each individual member. That’s why it took so long to find the right people to work with.”


Adalene was fully formed in October 2009. Each member immediately connected with one another. It didn’t take long for them to figure out when the band was undoubtedly complete. With influences ranging from 70s Rock to Hard Rock to Alternative Rock, it’s no wonder that their sound is reminiscent of those eras. Stylistically, Adalene has been compared to the Foo Fighters and Incubus. Some of their fans may find that their songs are a reflection of something else. However, one thing that can be agreed upon is that they have the quality of a melodic rock band that truly rocks.


Corey said, “Our singer actually sings. He doesn’t scream. We play rock music, but our drummer has a funky kind of flare, so some of the beats have a dance kind of thing. Even though it’s rock, it still has some movement. It’s not just straight ahead metal or anything like that. It’s all about being melodic. It’s never thought out, though.”


Though Josh writes most of the songs for Adalene, everyone in the band contributes to the songwriting. Josh said, “I write the majority of the music so far, but everybody in the band has writing abilities, and we’ve done some collaboration that turned out great. But, I had a lot of material before these guys, so that’s what we’ve been using.”


Adalene’s recent project was the recording of an EP, produced by Seth Goodman (assistant producer for Linkin Park, AFI). It features five fabulous tracks written by the band. But, it’s not just about the songs. Corey says, “There are certain songs that touch certain people. Hopefully, we become that kind of band. Not just because of our great looks (laughs). I hope we become something to someone. It’s not just about the music, it’s about the whole thing.” Adds Josh, “I don’t think we ever try to overdo it or take ourselves too seriously. We write music that people just enjoy listening to, and if it has some meaning to whoever, hopefully it’s relatable to other people.”



The members of Adalene always make it a point to have a good time on and off the stage. They want their audience to have a good time. Corey believes, “If it’s not fun, why do it?” Adalene is currently nominated for Best Live Rock Performance for the 2010 Nashville Independent Music Awards.


Exciting developments are up ahead for Adalene. In the meantime, check out one of their shows because there’s always something new and unexpected. The only thing that’s certain to be expected is a rockin’ good time!

Bio

Nashville, Tennessee, often referred to as “Music City” has long been associated as the hot spot for country music, although in the midst of the hype, its rock ‘n roll scene has been on the rise and still growing for quite some time. In Fall 2009 the rock scene had witnessed many bands come and go, starving for a new band to grab their attention. Adalene was present and energized to step in and fill that void. Formed in October 2009, Adalene consists of members from top local and nationally signed acts from around the United Sates. Members include lead vocalist Brett Moyer originally from Ohio, lead guitarist Corey Rozzoni (ex- Burden Brothers) from Illinois, bass player Jonathan Stoye and rhythm guitarist/keyboardist Josh Mitchell both from Michigan, and drummer Jeremy Moore (ex- Faktion) from Texas. Says Josh, “We wouldn’t be the same without each individual member.”

With influences ranging from 70’s Rock to Hard Rock to Alternative Rock, it’s no wonder that their sound is reminiscent of those eras. Stylistically, Adalene has been compared to the Foo Fighters and Incubus. “Our singer actually sings. He doesn’t scream,” Corey says “We play rock music, but it has a funky kind of flare, so some of the beats have a dance feel. Even though it’s rock, it still has some movement. It’s not just straight ahead metal or anything like that. It’s all about being melodic.”

Adalene’s first performance took place at the renowned 12th and Porter in Nashville to a nearly sold out crowd. “It’s rare to see a band create such a buzz around their first concert”, says Justin Roddick (Owner of 12th and Porter) “but these guys delivered a great crowd and performance their first time around.” Even though it was the band’s first time performing together, the members were no strangers to the stage. Each member has done national and regional touring in past, while bringing their exceptional talent together creating the true talent most music enthusiasts have been missing. Engaging their audience with phenomenal stage presence, delivering a power-packed show and keeping their fan base broadening, this group is moving up… and fast!

The band continued to play out live around Nashville the remainder of 2009 while writing and preparing for their debut EP, “Night on Fire”. In Spring 2010, Adalene setup shop in the studio with producer Seth Goodman. The EP was recorded at OmniSound Studios in Nashville. The five-song disc is a launch pad of an original rock band ready to make their mark in rock music. “Night on Fire” was released May 8 with the CD release party following at 12th and Porter.

Since the release of the EP, the band is revved and ready to play out as much as possible. With a 2011 schedule that boasts big things, Adalene is heading back in the studio to record another album in the ‘Birthplace of Rock n Roll,’ Memphis, Tennessee. Nominated for “Best Live Rock Performance” for the 4th Annual Nashville Independent Music Awards and having shared the stage with many national acts within the short time of the bands inception, it’s impossible to stop their driving momentum. If the Nashville music scene was starving for a new act nearly a year ago, Adalene has definitely filled their plate with the music they’ve been craving.
