Her CD, Everyone Has A Story, showcases cabaret and theater songs. The CD, Changing My Tune, features jazz-based new standards co-written with Joel Evans. One appears in the film Doubt, others in Netflix’s Holidate and Disney+’s WandaVision, and yet another was selected by the Australian Discovery Orchestra for Broadway Records’ CD 16 Stories: New American Musicals. Legendary songstress Sue Raney recorded Adryan’s song Late In Life, co-written with Shelly Markham. Barry White recorded Adryan’s The Better Love Is, The Worse It Is When It’s Over. And the song Fire In Me is performed by emerging artist Luara.
A longtime member of ASCAP, The Dramatists Guild, and the Recording Academy, Adryan has served on the board of the Society of Composers & Lyricists.
Please stick around after the show to enjoy two great songs, Top of the World, co-written with Joel Evans, and sung by Adam James, and Matters of the Heart, co-written with Doug Haverty and sung by Tami Tappan Damiano.
