About the contributor:

My name is Adé and I love music. I mean LOVE. Like, the kind of love that causes you to make irrational life decisions. The kind of love for which you forego a full scholarship at a top university and a commission in the U.S. Navy, just for a shot at a record contract (#truestory).
But I digress.
As I was saying, my name is Adé, I love music, and I am the lead vocalist for The Hawthornes. We’re a local 4-piece funk/rock/soul fusion unit. And we wouldn’t be here without the unique OTC community helping to make, support and define the local music scene.
