Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

I discovered Adrina Thorpe on MySpace. Her style is beautiful piano pop ala Sarah McLachlan, Vienna Teng and the like. Her voice is lovely and suits the music well.

The production is first class, very professional. Creating a full layered sound.

Some of the songs are very mainstream pop (but in a good way) and would be very comfortable on AAA radio next the above-mentioned artists as well as Anna Nalick, and Shawn Colvin and the like. I would say that “More Than Seventeen” certainly falls in this category along with “With Hope”.

“Round the Bend” is my favorite currently, but I also like “Correction” and “Never Meant” is fun too. But really I like all the songs. They’re all solid and there’s not a one I’d skip. You don’t get that on very many CDs nowadays! I hope Adrina Thorpe is here to stay.
