Singer-songwriter Nola Adé brings a fresh, optimistic sound to R&B/Soul, infused with an indefatigable faith in love and enough sun to brighten even the least inspiring day.
A first generation Nigerian-American, the Chicago native describes herself as the embodiment of an immigrant spirit of hope and enthusiasm, eagerly embracing the opportunities inherent in each new day. The infectious confidence and disciplined work ethic instilled in Adé by her devoted parents can be heard in her fearless, rollicking melodies.
Renowned for both her innovative takes on modern classics and affecting, upbeat original compositions, Adé has opened for national recording artists like Bilal and Avery*Sunshine, and performed on the Lexus Versus and Flow stage at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. Solo performances at legendary Chicago hotspots such as The Shrine, The Promontory, The Throne Room, The Velvet Lounge, and City Winery Chicago have garnered Adé a dedicated audience.
