About
My name is Adeline Um and I am a Korean American singer songwriter who started my music journey as a Berklee City Music scholar. I first started my songwriting career by writing my own indie-pop music and now I also write in the EDM/Deep House sphere as a topline singer songwriter. I have signed my music to independent labels such as Lowly Palace, LoudKult, and Magic Music and I have received over 750,000 plays on Soundcloud. Here are some of my most notable performances. From my early days with Berklee City Music, I performed the National Anthem at Fenway Park and the TD Garden. I also performed at the Grammy museum in LA for artists such as Lalah Hathaway. This past October, I went on a Sofar Sounds Tour along the East Coast, my most notable performance at the House of Blues Chicago. I believe that my unique sound and honest writing is what ultimately draws listeners in, I write about real and vulnerable experiences, often with my mental health journey and day to day challenges. I do my best to connect with my audience by creating a platform that allows individuals to feel comfortable about sharing their own challenges too. I have graduated with an MA in Social Anthropology and Psychology from the University of St. Andrews and I am continuing to combine my love for people and culture with music. My main goal in life as a musician is to create a greater space for Asian Americans in the music industry. Our past ancestors have emphasized pursuing professions such as law, medicine, and engineering, resulting in a perpetuated cycle that does not create a space for individuals who have a passion for the arts. I want to be a part of the change that creates a positive and effective cultural shift in the music industry in this way. I am currently based in both Boston, USA and Scotland, UK.
