Meet Nu-Disco Soulstress, Adeline Michèle, the French-Caribbean tour-de-force widely known as the indomitable voice and face of the lauded band Escort. Fresh off her memorable performance at Afropunk Brooklyn, Adeline is preparing to release her soulful self-titled debut solo album [ad-uh-leen] on November 9. She has already made waves with her solo project this summer, garnering praise from VOGUE, FADER, Refinery29, She Shreds, Rolling Stone and many more.
With musical influences essential to any history lesson in funk, R&B and disco, her upcoming solo debut collection – which she co-produced with Morgan Wiley (Hercules & Love Affair, Midnight Magic), wrote & played bass on – gives nods to Chaka Khan, Prince, Curtis Mayfield & Sylvester while still remaining contemporary.
“This song is a chant for “un-pragmatic, non-materialistic love, it’s about loving someone for who they are and not what they have. Can’t buy the heart with gold”.
