Singer and jazz organist Adrienne Hindmarsh is a truly unique talent on today’s music scene.

Born in New Zealand into a musical family, Adrienne acquired her first organ in 2003 when she imported a Hammond C3 from Canada and with no jazz organ players in her country she taught herself to play by copying recordings by Jimmy Smith, Joey DeFrancesco, Groove Holmes and Jack McDuff. After performed clubs and festivals throughout New Zealand and Australia, Adrienne moved to the USA in 2009. During a year spent in the Midwest, performing at Hammond organ summits, club gigs and jam sessions in Cincinnati, Detroit, Dayton and Columbus, Adrienne further developed her sound on the bandstand. It was during this time Adrienne noticed she was the only female instrumentalist on the bandstand, and it wasn’t until she moved to New York she found other strong female performers on the scene. Now based in New York, where she is actively performs throughout the city, Adrienne continues to thrive with her originality and talent.

How many organists play in the tradition of Jimmy Smith while also singing like a jazz vocalist from the 1950s? .... (Jazz Around Town- LA Jazz Scene August 2009).
