Alt-pop Artist / Solo Violinist / Actress


Adrianna Mateo cuts a singular profile across the music industry as an alt-pop artist, solo violinist, and actress.


In the last six months, she opened for Alicia Keys at the Ritz-Carlton Battery Park, performed her original music at Rockefeller Center's famous Rainbow Room, and recorded her next single from her debut EP “Skin Hunger” at Jungle City Studios with a Grammy Award-nominated team whose credits span Björk to Tiësto and John Legend. Previously, Adrianna performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, at Carnegie Hall and the TimesCenter, on stage for multiple, concurrent runs at the Metropolitan Opera and Metropolitan Museum of Art, at the Bang on a Can Summer Marathon, and on tour internationally, earning her acclaim from the New York Times and TimeOut New York. Her music, supported by composer Nico Muhly and praised by Grammy Award-winning, multiplatinum producer Bob Power, is announced first via her newsletter and available on all major online music distributors.


Adrianna grew up in Queens listening to everything the New York City Public Library (and her college sound guy turned doctor dad’s music collection) offered: the three B’s of the Mateo household (Bach, Barbara Streisand, and Billy Idol); everything Disney, especially Moana and Lilo & Stitch; and artists and styles ranging from Madonna to Alicia Keys, Fall Out Boy, Sia, Panic! At the Disco, Regina Spektor, Rihanna, and Taylor Swift; Australian Aborigine, flamenco, taiko, and tinikling dance music; Rachel Podger, Stephane Grappelli, Mark O’Connor; Bill Evans, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Edith Piaf, Frank Sinatra, Keith Jarrett, and more. Currently, she’s inspired by the careers of Donald Glover/Childish Gambino, Lea Salonga, Patti Smith, and Halsey.



"Punk rock is the freedom to create, freedom to be successful, freedom to not be successful, freedom to be who you are. It's freedom."

- Patti Smith


Adrianna’s artistically fluid career has spanned singing on MTV and the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, opening solo for Alicia Keys at the Ritz, performing solo violin at the Bang on a Can Marathon (which earned her recognition from both The New York Times and TimeOut NY), acting onstage at the Met Opera, meeting music industry titans Clive Davis and Vanessa Williams, and touring internationally in Europe, Southeast Asia, and South Africa. She made her Carnegie Hall debut at nine years old as a pianist and recently made her conducting debut at Merkin Hall.

Her next original single, “Skin Hunger,” was recorded at Jungle City Studios with a Grammy-nominated team (credits includes Björk, John Legend, and Tiësto). She’s currently looking for a manager, agent, and home label for her debut EP.
