Discovery: Adrian Jean

Adrian Jean is an R&B singer who has risen up from the poorest neighbourhoods of Philidephia. Now based in LA, he uses his experience growing up to make soulful, grounded, hopeful ballads like See The Stars.

By Graeme Smith

As you might expect, See The Stars tells the tale of being expected to be normal but wanting so much more. The story unfold through a combination of Adrian’s smooth vocals and spoken-word interludes. It’s an unusual but effective combination, making See The Stars equal parts easy-listening and thought-provoking.

Adrian has taken being dealt a weak hand and made something beautiful out of it. I for one can’t wait to hear what he does next. Check out See The Stars below.
