Just Another Day
When Adrian's best friend wanted to start a band, they drew straws to pick who would be the guitar player -- and therefore be famous. Adrian lost the draw, so he got stuck with playing bass. He sold his tricked-out custom BMX and crossed over from trickster to musician without looking back. In 1997 his high school band the Sublime Jam recoalesced after a long hiatus to form San Francisco's local favorite JP*Orbit. They played all over town, from Hotel Utah to the Great American Music Hall before drifting into comfy family lives -- eventually forming the hit kids band Orange Sherbet. In between, he's played fusion, bluegrass, folk, rock and cabaret -- but never his own music. So in 2006 Adrian began writing and recording a cycle of songs for the album, 'Just Another Day,' releasing October 2008. The dozen original songs on the album touch on everyday moments that happen to all of us -- staying at home on a cold Saturday, listening to music in the park, taking a minute to slow down and just......be. From fun, feel good tracks like 'Your Life' to soft, melodic tracks like 'Tumbleweed Sky,' Adrian's quiet intensity cuts through the layers of acoustic and electric instrumentation. It's a comfortable, sweet sound that will make you want to kick off your shoes and be yourself, wherever you happen to be.
