Not only does Adey have serious talent in music, but she also has one of those charismatic, passionate, full-of-life personalities. While interviewing her, I was increasingly amazed as words poured out of her with such clarity, introspection, and a wisdom beyond her 24 years. Ironically, she also has a playful childlike quality– full of laughter, energy and enthusiasm. Adey told me that as a little girl she lived in her imagination, and that she strives to be that little girl everyday– self-assured, yet curious and fascinated with the world around her. As I continued to listen to her talk about how she came to believe in herself as a talented musician and stop listening to the voices of self-doubt, it made perfect sense that she was getting back in touch with little Adey. The little, yet confident, I can do or be anything I want, child that’s in all of us. Well, that little girl is expressing herself in many new ways as Adey has taken up painting and also has very creatively designed the cd cases and inserts for her new demo album. Undoubtedly Adey will continue to transform as a musician and songwriter in exciting ways. Success? She says she has already found it by loving her life and the person she is.
“I love my life. I am so provided for and entranced by the unfolding beauty of existence. The universe conspires to fulfill my dreams, and everything on this path is an opportunity to fully awaken…I am incredibly inspired by this everyday manifestation of perfection, and the musical expression that is displayed through me was created to be shared. My intention is to create music and to come together in peace and celebrate the beautiful talented artwork surrounding us.” ~Adey Garner

Happiness is in the journey, in the moment, not the destination.
