Indie Rockers New Album Inspired by Eau Claire
Though Dear Adora is picking up speed in Chicago, the band’s recently released self-titled album got its start right here in Eau Claire. Adam Keepman heads the band, and says the music came from his experiences as a UWEC student just a few years ago. The emotive eight-song album that has been described as “twangy, lilting, alt-country” features soft vocals, clean acoustic guitar, distorted electric, and minimalist percussion. Keepman says he’s hoping to play a local show in the coming months, and it will certainly be worth looking forward to if only to experience the catchy simplicity of Radio (Now Trying to Pretend) and rhythmic layering of Closer. Listen to the album for free at www.DearAdora.com, and hope that this former local will soon rejoin our pool of talent.
