Adaline wanders happily
When Adaline holds the release party for her new (and arse-kickingly excellent) album, Modern Romantics, on Saturday (November 5), she’s doing it here at the Biltmore Cabaret, and not in her new hometown of Toronto.
“Now I get to come home with a sense of occasion instead of just, like, playing to the same people in the same clubs all the time,” Adaline told the Straight. “And it’ll be nice to see my family and friends.”
After emerging in 2008 with Famous for Fire, Adaline quickly rose up through the city’s music scene before splitting in March of this year. She left, she said, partly because “I felt like I’d done all I could do in Vancouver,” but Adaline also admits that she’s basically a wanderer.
“Because of my dad being a pastor, we moved so much that I just don’t have a problem with moving. I kind of like it,” she said, adding that she’ll go wherever success takes her. “If the label was to call me tomorrow and say, ‘Your record is doing well in, wherever,’ I would go there.”
Really? How about Fukushima?
“You’re making me eat my words, but yeah,” she said, “I’d do it.”
