We are Adalene.

We are a rock band.

We are from Nashville, TN.

We have been together for a little over 2 years and released a 5-song EP in 2010 which was recorded by our good friend, Seth Goodman. We've played many shows and have met many new friends along the way. In the last few months we have recorded a new song with Seth and another with Chris Utley at Benchmark Studios. They have received a very warm reception from fans and industry folks.

Several people have expressed an interest in working with us from producers, to managers, to booking agents. We were told we need to be out on the road as much as possible and should get in the studio to work on a full length release. All of this involves start up money like any other business. It also doesn't help that our bass player, Jon, destroyed the transmission in our touring vehicle "The Green Bean". So we are in need of a new vehicle to get us from town to town.

We are very hard working guys, but the amount of money we need, in the short time we need it, is beyond our means. So we are asking you, our friends, family, fans, and anyone else who finds us along the way, for a helping hand.

The money we raise will go primarily towards a new touring vehicle and a small bit will help us cover gas as we travel from town to town to visit you guys.
