Seeds of 2015

This post will be slightly different – and it will be the first step to the new direction of my blog, where I will start sharing thoughts and experience. This is an urge driven by my soul – I feel that by being honest about my past and journey I could help and uplift. I hope that my reflection can be universal, but I have a special intention to inspire creatives and artists – those, who often need the support the most on the path, that often is full of road blocks. I am still on mine – and I constantly follow my heart – and by surrounding myself with like-minded creative tribe I receive energy that helps me keep moving forward as well.

So let’s get to the major theme of this post…

Highlights of 2015 for Adriana Deco

  • winning a competition and creating illustrations for H&M Oxford Circus
  • I became a head graphic designer at Lulu Guinness
  • recording my EP ‘Destiny’, completing Urban Development course
  • filming two professional music videos with top notch film makers
  • discovering new passion – live fashion illustration – leading to top clients like Tod’s, Moet Hennessy, H&M (Vogue Fashion Night Out), Mahiki Club
  • starting this blog and eventful London Fashion Weeks
  • I was hesitant about X Factor, but I decided to include it as a bullet point – it’s a twisted and unfair story, but making it to the Wembley was still an achievement – and greater achievement was overcoming the pain and getting back on track
  • meeting a lot of supportive people, who shared their talent, wisdom or advice with me.

It is quite a long list and for each experience I am extremely grateful; however, my most beautiful realization is that my music videos – projects that come truly from my soul – are the ones I am mostly proud of. Even though I haven’t received any applause, exposure or financial rewards (yet! 😉  – these are the projects that make me feel most connected to my soul purpose.

I can’t wait until official campaign of my Destiny project starts – it is more than an EP – it is a personal story, where my music and visuals finally create together a vision. To bring it all together to this point the roller coaster of emotions definitely paid off.

Wishing you all a prosperous, inspiring, fulfilling year – full of positivity and strength to create your DESTINY in 2016!

Metro Acoustic – Live at Metropolis Studios

A couple of weeks ago I was invited by Metro Acoustic to perform over at their acoustic night promoting unsigned singer songwriters and bands.

To me it was a great experience, knowing that in the large halls of the building my idols have recorded their songs – Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson are just a couple to mention.

I was performing a set of my original songs, including the acoustic premieres of my upcoming singles. It was truly special to me to sing these songs for the first time in a place of such musical history importance. One of them is Destiny, which video you can watch below.

Many thanks to Yasmin Mirdamad, who took the video and photos – being a great saxophone player and musician herself.
