I have had the pleasure of getting to know one of our real estate photographers – Adalinda Gonzalez (Addy) who happens to live over 2,000 miles from us over the last year and a half! It was a wonderful surprise when Addy emailed me a couple of months ago and extended an invitation to attend her daughters concert up in LA where she would be visting her. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend but I thought it was so neat that I would write a little bit about it.
Here is a little bit about Addy’s daughter (Adrianne) and her band the Rescues:
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. No band in recent history illustrates that notion better than The Rescues. Comprised of four successful and critically acclaimed solo singer-songwriters in their own right – Adrianne Gonzalez, Kyler England, Gabriel Mann, and Rob Giles – The Rescues have more than 15 albums, dozens of songwriting awards, and thousands of miles on the road between them.
Friends and occasional touring partners, The Rescues formed when a former Atlantic Records executive (a fan of their solo projects) asked them join as a group to perform a concert at his wedding in the Hollywood Hills. The chemistry was instantaneous, both between them and with the audience, and a band was born. The ensuing 18 months have been a whirlwind. The band has done two sold-out tours, played Mountain Stage for broadcast on NPR, staged a string of sold-out concerts in Los Angeles including a residency at Hotel Café, been featured regularly on Grey’s Anatomy and Army wives among other hit TV shows, had songs in films including “The Lucky Ones” and “Superhero Movie,” been Spotlighted on Myspace’s Music Page, released their debut record “Crazy Ever After”, and charted on FMQB’s AAA Public Breakout Chart.
Their press has been delirious. They’ve been called “The First Indie Supergroup,” “A cross between Crosby, Stills and Nash and Concrete Blonde,” and “On a level above everything else on the L.A. Music Scene” (The Reader). They’ve been described as “Pure musical Bliss” and delivering “Poignant, powerhouse songwriting” (Indie-Music.com). LA Weekly says, “It’s hard to believe they’ve only been playing together for about a year. Their voices take flight on the soaring opener, “Lost Along the Way,” and rarely land again.” And Music Connection said: “Historic. A new band composed of four of L.A.’s finest singer-songwriters. It was as if these four had been born for this moment, such was the chemistry emanating from the stage. The Rescues have everything they need to become the leaders in a musical revolution.”
The Rescues began writing and recording their sophomore album “Let Loose The Horses” during their hugely successful January residency at the Hotel Cafe. The record is set to be released in July 2009.
