Bandleader Adrienne Hindmarsh is a vocalist with a unique voice, often compared to the female singers from the 1950's big band swing era. She is also a dynamic Hammond organist with immense skill in the style of jazz organ. Playing a small amount of organ as a child Adrienne taught herself to play the Hammond by copying the recordings of Jimmy Smith, Joey DeFrancesco, Groove Holmes and Jack McDuff. Due to the lack of jazz organists in her native New Zealand Adrienne relocated to the USA in June 2008 to pursue her career in music. Her repertoire includes jazz standards, bossanovas and popular tunes from artists such as Norah Jones and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Her dedication to the Hammond B3 organ, skill at footpedal bass and use of dynamic chords makes sure the classic sound of the Hammond B3 stays alive...Thanks to Peter Holmstedt at Hemifran
