Adrianna Mateo (New Amsterdam Records) cuts a singular profile across the music industry as a rare talent: solo violinist, alt-pop singer-songwriter, and actress (with multiple professional conducting credits under her belt). Elegant and edgy, her aura lends itself to a dizzying array of projects: recent appearances include premiering a violin concerto written for her backed by a fifty-piece orchestra (composer, Mitchell McCarthy), making her Broadway debut in "Tootsie" (1st concertmaster sub), singing her original songs at MCU Park for more than 40,000 people (Brooklyn Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk), acting in HBO's "Succession," playing solo violin on CNN and at the United Nations General Assembly (Refugee Orchestra Project), singing on MTV, and performing her music with a full live band at Joe's Pub. She has also opened solo for Alicia Keys at the Ritz-Carlton Battery Park, performed originals at Rockefeller Center's Rainbow Room, and both co-produced and tracked her soon-to-be-released single “Skin Hunger” at Jungle City Studios with a Grammy Award-nominated team (credits span Björk to John Legend). Her music, supported by composer Nico Muhly and praised by Grammy Award-winning, multiplatinum producer Bob Power, is announced first via her newsletter and is available on all major online music distributors.
Charismatic both on camera and onstage, Adrianna regularly films and performs throughout - and beyond - her hometown, New York City. She has sung on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, improvised violin at the TimesCenter for tech blog Engadget, performed on stage for multiple, concurrent runs at the Metropolitan Opera (actress, international HD broadcast with Anna Netrebko) and Metropolitan Museum of Art (music director-curator and solo violinist), performed at the Bang on a Can Summer Marathon (solo violin - that year's only solo artist), recorded for Philip Glass, and performed on tour internationally (Southeast Asia, South Africa, Europe, North America), earning her acclaim from both the New York Times and TimeOut New York.
Adrianna's formative musical experiences include performing her Carnegie Hall debut on piano at eight years old, writing new songs every day for a week at the Johnny Mercer Foundation Songwriters Project, and regularly immersing herself for hours in her dad's music collection, which featured the Mateo family's Three B's: Bach, Barbara Streisand, and Billy Idol.
When not performing, songwriting, filming, or recording, Adrianna mentors songwriters and advanced string quartets at Face the Music, the Kaufman Center's pre-college program for 21st century music.
