With years of sharing the stage with artists like Neko Case, Rachael Yamagata, Nicole Atkins, Gillian Welch, Linda Rondstadt, and Amos Lee, Adrien continues to build an evolving and impressive career in music.

The album was recorded in Woodstock with the production duo The Elegant Too (P. Diddy, Yoko Ono, John Cale) and offers listeners a lush, deeply textured pop record that has already caught the attention of WDST and WXPN (Philadelphia), and finds Reju in the company of fellow Woodstock artists A.C. Newman (The New Pornographers) and Marco Benevento. In addition to her striking original songs, Reju also covers tunes by David Bowie, Elliot Smith, and Prince.
