Musician, Emcee, Spoken Word Artist, AdaezeAt the age of 22, Adaeze is a talented and multi-faceted performance artist that merges poetry, rap, and hip-hop into a cohesive and unique musical experience. This young and up and coming artist adeptly and seamlessly fuses her love for the art of spoken word with her love of music to create a one of a kind sound that transcends conventional musical and artistic genres. This transcendence gave rise to the need to create a new genre that would encapsulate her particular style, thus she has dubbed her art form, “freelyric”. With the help of local Gainesville recording and production studio, Crescendo Sound Studios, Adaeze has recently completed her first professional recording a 9-track project entitled REM or Rapid Eye Movement that was slated for release in March of 2012.
