Adrienne Young


A self-made country-folk artist, she began her musical career in her native homeland of Florida, with a jazz band. After a while she ended up in Nashville and studied at Belmont University. She also began a long association with guitarist-singer-producer Will Kimbrough, who has recorded with Tommy Womack, Jimmy Buffett, among others in country music circles.

With income from doing odd jobs on music row in Nashville she produced, with Kimbrough, her debut album Plow to the End of the Row, which netted a Grammy nomination. She formed a band, dubbed ‘Little Sadie’ and started touring around Nashville, her home state of Florida and finally around the country. They also did a very high quality music video for the song “Home Remedy,” which was shot on film and transferred to video. The video probably featured a lot of long-time friends, supporters, neighbors and family.

Releasing independently through her own record company, AddieBelle Records, her second album, The Art Of Virtue, came out in 2005. This one featured, among some traditional songs, original tunes made in collaboration with Kimbrough, a cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Brokedown Palace” – which is what caught my attention, being a long time fan of the Dead.

Her two albums caught a lot of other people’s attention, too! Reviews for the album include nods from the Detroit Free Press, Boston Herald, Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Daily News, Associated Press, Kansas City Star, Philadelphia Inquirer and the Washington Post Express

They are a primarily acoustic band (she plays both guitar and banjo) with some occasional licks of electric guitar, but backed by fiddle, stand up acoustic base, one or two banjos and acoustic guitars. Not quite folk. Not quite country. It’s something more akin to pop-country-folk.

Adrienne is also active in promoting the small farmer and locally grown foods and the home garden. She’s been active with FoodRoutes Network in helping to re-introduce people and restaurants to local suppliers of fresh fruits and vegetables.
