ABOUT THE BAND
Adar’s supremely original music and lyrics create a world that is deeply her own, yet belongs to all of us. A powerhouse vocalist, Adar formed her band, ADAR, in the summer of 2016, and shortly after, released her first album “The Rapids.” The band is currently in the process of recording their second album, which will be released in 2019. Based out of Charlottesville, VA, ADAR has electrified audiences with charismatic performances that seem to have been channeled, rather than composed. Not quite Soul, not simply R&B, not straight-up Jazz, ADAR blends and transcends each genre, delivering a sound that is uniquely their own.
Reviewing The Rapids, Nick Rubin of the C-Ville Weekly, wrote, "On The Rapids, classic soul sonics give way to balladry as well as touches of reggae and Cubanismo. Her band delivers tasty trumpet and organ solos and whining steel guitar; Adar’s lyrics are sensorily rich with flavors and textures, and...production sets everything in the right space.”
The band is comprised of five talented musicians: Adar Seligman-McComas (Vocals and Compositions), Nick Berkin (Keys), Ryan Lee (Guitar), Andrew Hollifield (Bass), and Garrett Moore (Drums).
