Adriana Walsh is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and composer based in New York City. She is best known for her solo acoustic work (guitar and vocals), which she considers folk-country, but has also played with several groups, including Iowa-based band Victorian Gaslight (guitar, banjo, trumpet, vocals). She has opened for a number of touring acts, including Norwegian Arms, Ryley Walker, Fort Frances, and Bowerbirds.
In the summer of 2009, Walsh was awarded first place in the National Guitar Workshop’s Songwriting Competition for her song “Crying Out”. While attending the Workshop that summer, she played a song to open for folk singer-songwriter David Wilcox.
While Walsh spends most of her time writing songs for voice and acoustic guitar, she also composes contemporary concert music, studying under the instruction of Eric McIntyre and John Rommereim at Grinnell College. She has premiered several pieces, including a choral piece entitled “Mountain Pass, Early Morning” (SSAA) performed by Grammy-award winning experimental choral group Roomful of Teeth.
In the summer of 2013, Walsh released a demo entitled “Where Colder Winds Blow.” She plans to release her first full-length album in the spring of 2016.
