Since the runaway success of her 1990 debut album "Circle of One," and the impassioned hit single "Get Here" - the Brenda Russell composition that became an unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War - Oleta Adams has inspired a growing legion of fans in the U.S. and Europe with journeys of the heart, songs that draw deeply from her roots in Gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music.
Her success, nurtured by worldwide tours with Tears for Fears, Michael Bolton, and Luther Vandross, have been solidified by three Grammy nominations and a seemingly bottomless well of creative energy "Adams' exquisite voice is an instrument whose high end vibrated in stunning clarity and whose bottom range resonates richly." ---Rolling Stone Magazine "She performs within the pop lexicon without letting it transform or cheapen her talents.
Her classically trained voice is nuanced, and she coaxes quiet tears from her listeners as often as she inspires spontaneous, one-person standing ovations. She dares to be overtly inspirational, vulnerable and loving." ---The New York Times
