ADBN’s name is an ode to the neighborhood that raised him, Avenue Audubon, inspired directly by real-life experiences as he injects them into his music. Hailing from the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City, the singer-songwriter has been surrounded by all kinds of music since a very young age, listening to the likes of Barry White, Anthony Santos, and Nirvana. As he grew older, he fell in love with hip-hop and began filling his time teaching himself song structure, music production, and how to write rhymes.
Now after his stint working in television, he commits to music full-time. Kicking off the new year, he releases the official music video for “LOST KEY,” premiered today exclusively on Flaunt. With his versatility and capability in dabbling in multiple genres, the record is about a woman who’s done with ADBN for messing up… but he’s not so done with her. The visual brings to life a tale as old as time, retold with a sprinkle of hope at the end.
Speaking on the record, ADBN states, “‘Lost Key’ was the first go at working on my new EP. I told myself if this one sounds the way I think it can, I’ll keep going down this rabbit hole. I was aiming for something that could connect and still be able to bust out a Michael dance number low key.”
Fans can look forward to his forthcoming debut EP, slated to arrive sometime in the spring.
