Odette Adams

Odette Adams is a huge British talent, as smooth, seductive and soulful a voice as you will ever hear! She is a star.

Odette acoustic guitar and vocals, Stefanos Tsourelis guitar and vocals, Eric Ford drums and percussion, Mike Ikwunemesi bass and vocals, Kartik Raghunathan vocals

Odette spent four years travelling the world, paying her way by working as a singer on cruise ships. Using her free time on those long voyages to concentrate on her playing and writing, Odette's travels have fundamentally influenced the sound of her music.

"Odette unleashes a chain of sun-kissed original numbers with the verve of R&B, but none of its bombast or cliches. - Clive Davis, The Sunday Times
"Odette’s music is very positive and uplifting. It’s absolutely wonderful to hear great music combined with beautiful, honest lyrics that have substance. A breath of fresh air!" - Emily Boulting
