UK Country Pop trio The Adelaides, featuring Paris Georgia, Alicia Alba and Abi Phillips, are ready to make a great leap forward. 2017 has been a great year for the girls, not least as they signed a management deal with Simon Porter at Duroc Media, the home of Status Quo, and were taken on by Neil Warnock of United Talent Group, who is personally representing them. The band justified the growing interest in them by wowing a hardcore country audience when they played at the Country Music Fest show in October at The Borderline. On top of that, the band will close out 2017 as tour support for singer and TV star Megan McKenna’s December UK tour. 2018 can’t come fast enough for this talented trio!
A young band, in every sense, The Adelaides nonetheless hark back to the old time Country traditions of talent, truth and integrity. Just like the three little birds in the band’s logo, these girls just want to entertain: singin’ sweet songs of melodies pure and true.
The Adelaides are three incredible vocalists who pack a serious collective punch. Paris Georgia is a prolific and creative vocalist who has taken part in songwriting sessions in the home of Country, Nashville, and also performed at the city’s legendary Bluebird venue. An engaging and confident performer with scores of gigs under her belt, she has also sung solo at Wembley Arena at a charity event. The baby of the group, Alicia Alba has sung all her life and yet she came to The Adelaides from the world of Acting and Dance. Whilst she loved her drama school, the focus on musical theatre interested her less as her own tastes were rooted in soul and blues. Hooking up with The Adelaides allows her to indulge her love of music and performance, and she turned down appearing on ‘The Voice’ to concentrate on the group. Abi Phillips is an accomplished singer/songwriter who has been writing original material since her early teens. A well-known TV face, Abi originally won her Hollyoaks role by writing a song called ‘Missing You’ which was broadcast during one of her storylines. Having performed at well-known events including BBC Children in Need, Moonwalk at Hyde Park and T4 On The Beach, Abi has a wealth of live experience, which she plans to put to full use on her journey with The Adelaides.
A truly exciting live act, the girls’ blend of self-penned originals, leavened with a couple of well-chosen covers, is winning them new fans wherever they go. Now focusing even more closely on the writing side, The Adelaides have a set of great tracks in the bag – with the likes of ‘Reckless’, ‘No Survivors’, ‘What Your Heart Would Say’, ‘Jelly Baby’ and ‘Jack Daniels’ being thoroughly road-tested. Into the mix they often bring a track like Lady Gaga’s ‘Million Reasons’ or the Maren Morris song ‘My Church’, given a creative twist by The Adelaides. The band have been experimenting with various producers to find their sound including the likes of music legend, and Country fan, Francis Rossi.
Already having turned heads and been welcomed on stages and radio stations across the country The Adelaides are fired up and optimistic, and well they might be, ’Cause every little thing gonna be alright. Watch these girls fly!
