As the second contender on the international studded vocal competition ‘The Voice,’ the world was introduced to a vibrant teen from Fort Wayne, Indiana on its thirteenth season. Under the guise of Adam Levine, Addison Agen’s vocal ability resonate with eloquent conviction at the tender age of 16, that could come to a close comparison from the likes of Joni Mitchell and Mariah Carey due to her earthy, yet powerful octave. Currently 18-years-old and one successful solo album (‘New Places’ released in 2016), the rising pop/folk-star is slated to take the world by a storm.
Recently graduating high school in her hometown, ‘The Voice’ alumni are currently in preparation to perform Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet Band Shows at DTE Energy Music Theatre (Township, Michigan). The sold-out dates are slated for: June 6, 8, 12, and 14. Agen recently expressed her gratitude and excitement for the upcoming performances:
“I’m so excited to have this amazing opportunity to perform in front of so many Bob Seger fans. The level of support and dedication they show him is truly remarkable, and I hope as my career develops I will build that same relationship with my fans.”
The teen sensation has been proactive in the studio while finishing her senior year of high school. While under new management, her forthcoming album is slated to release later on in the year, which showcases Agen’s songwriting abilities and post-pubescence as an overall artist. In a recent interview, the Fort Wayne native described her highly anticipated (untitled) album as being an observer of people, adhering to her folk-telling background:
“The songs are a lot about people, I love people, I’m a people watcher. Some of the stories are about that it was like in LA with all those people. Another song is about finding who I am even when there are literally 15 million people watching you every week and judging you. This is my introductory album. The genre is hard to put into words but it’s a mix of Americana, Folk, Alternative. Call it what you want. It’s what my brain sounds like.” – Source
