Adele, although just out of school and only 18, certainly has friends in the right places at the moment. Lily Allen recommended her song "Daydreamer" to Rolling Stone magazine, calling it "amazing". To show how very young she is, you can actually download her scat-flavored song "My Same" from her school project website from when she was a senior at The Brit School. Adele is like Amy Winehouse if Amy drank a bit less and grew up listening to more Etta (James and Fitzgerald). Her voice is the selling point here. It is jazzy, hypnotic and nuanced and no doubt rare for someone her age. I am definitely looking forward to hearing more from her. She has been signed to XL recently (along with her friend Jack Peñate).
