I’ve been seeing Adore Delano’s name a lot recently. Most recently, her name and amazing picture flashed across the scene that conceals that stage at First Avenue in order to promote her upcoming show on February 12th at The Fine Line. Even before that, I had seen her name and pictures randomly on my socials and to say I was intrigued would be an understatement. I wanted to know so much more aout this amazing performer so, when given the chance to ask her a few questions, I jumped on it!

The first thing that caught me about your track “Whole 9 Yards” was the lyrics– what’s your favorite line of lyrics that you have ever written?

You are about to embark on a world tour! First, CONGRATS! Second, what’s the city you are most looking forward to playing in and why?
I’m looking forward to all of the US dates coming up,but the first show here in Los Angeles at Whiskey a Go Go is going to be a wild kickoff for sure!
There’s a grungey aspect to your music but also something a bit heavier and darker while still being a bit poppy– It’s all over the place but who is your biggest influence when it comes to your music?
My stories are the biggest inspirations to my music sound at that given time. Experiences write themselves and music comes from inside.
How about your style (which is absolutely on point as well!)?
I look homeless 80% of the time and I love it
I am so excited for this tour but could we possibly also get excited for a new album after the tour?
New music is in the works after this tour. I’m taking a tiny break afterward then straight to the studio for new music!
Adore Delano is absolutely (brace yourself for the cheese) ADOREable. Seriously though. From her music to her look to her entertaining my quirky questions– I just could not be more in love with this performer.
As mentioned in the interview, Adore is embarking on her first world tour and has a lot of US dates coming up this spring so i have those listed below. I truly urge you to check out a show and, if you’re in Minneapolis, come find me at her show at The Fine Line on February 12th!
