AeB

Songwriter/Vocalist/Instrumentalist/Performer

L.A.'s musical renaissance woman, flexes her pop rock muscles on latest sonic adventure.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reverberating from jazz festivals to gritty pubs, yoga retreats to all-night fire parties on downtown rooftops, Adrienne "Aeb" Byrne is a force of nature on her latest self-titled release.

The City Of Angels resident musical mad scientist, Aeb effortlessly blends classic piano songwriting with saucy pop and ethereal flute work to craft songs that are equal parts Fiona Apple and Beck, with all the swagger of Amy Winehouse with the esoteric experimentation of Radiohead.

On this outing, Aeb, (herself a classically trained jazz musician who cut her teeth with alongside contemporary jazz greats Duane Eubanks, Ronnie Burrage and the late Sid Simmons), flirts between sexy, solo piano bar songstress and balls to the wall funky rock with her backing band of classic rock royalty.

A gorgeous mess of sonic pop mayhem, Aeb is equally at home when it's just Byrne ripping up solo sets, or with her band - Eric Ward (Marvin Gaye) and Evan Stone (The Translucent Ham Sandwich Band), who back Aeb in crafting those fat, soul-rock grooves that complement her smart songwriting.

Though you may find Aeb on any given night knocking down musical walls at some of L.A.'s hottest clubs - Byrne has also backed and shared the stage with many a musical icon, including Robby Krieger (The Doors), Alex Lifeson (Rush), Tommy Thayer (Kiss), Alice Cooper, Danny Seraphine (Chicago), Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and Phil Chen (Rod Stewart, Jeff Beck).
