Adrian Conner – ‘Airport Coffee’

Adrian Conner is a very busy lady. Familiar to regular readers of Essentially Pop as one half of duo Beaux Cheveux (with Clementine providing the other half), Adrian is also the lead guitarist in an all female AC/DC cover band, Hell’s Belles. Now Adrian has a solo EP coming out, ‘SpazKitty’, on which she’s not only performed but also written, produced, edited and engineered.
