Adeline 2022 Edits-5718.jpg


Hi there! My name is Adeline Um and I am Korean American singer songwriter who started my music journey as a Berklee City Music scholar. I first started my songwriting career by writing my own indie-pop music and now I also write in the EDM/Deep House sphere as a topline singer songwriter. I have signed my music to independent labels such as Lowly Palace, NCS, Future House Cloud, LoudKult, Elysian Records, Adept Records, Tribal Trap, Afterpeak, OneSeventy, AESTHETE, and Magic Music and have received over 3 million plays on Spotify and Soundcloud. I have been recognized by The Rolling Stone India and BBC Introducing and was a finalist in the top 2% at the UKSC (UK Songwriting Competition). 

I have built a grassroots community, with a dedicated social media following, with over 67k monthly listeners on Spotify. This has led to signing with a manager (Adrian Riches of Creative Sounds UK), and interest from producers and PR companies (3tone publishing). I am keen for my music to support ongoing conversations about inclusivity and representation within the music industry. 

Here are some of my most notable performances. From my early days with Berklee City Music, I performed the National Anthem at Fenway Park and the TD Garden. I also performed at the Grammy museum in LA for artists such as Lalah Hathaway. This past October, I went on a Sofar Sounds Tour along the East Coast, my most notable performance at the House of Blues Chicago. 

I am influenced by experiences, travel, love, and connections with family and friends.  I aspire to perform music that speaks across the musical spectrum. As a Korean American now living in Scotland, I hope my music is able to express the complexity of culture and humanity, while connecting people of different backgrounds.

"A little hopeful, yet heartbreaking anthem

from Adeline Um, that was called 'Take The Time To Grow.' I feel like I'm watching a romantic movie and the lead characters are getting ready for their wedding day. It is giving me young Taylor Swift meets Christina Perri kind of vibe. And that track is definitely an exclusive preview as it isn't coming out until April. But Adeline did release a single 'A Little Overwhelmed' back in January this year so you can check that out if you need to need to hear more of her right now. But please do not miss the dance tracks that she has guest vocals on either. They continue to rack up literally millions of streams online."
Phoebe Inglis-Holmes, BBC Introducing in Scotland

"That was the gorgeous vocals from Scottish based Korean singer songwriter Adeline Um, from her single ‘distancing.’ It’s a gorgeous piano pop tune, that features those heart wrenching lyrics that explore the difficulty of leaving a manipulative friendship, and it’s powerful and full of emotion from the get go. I actually feel a little bit like I’ve been transported into a Disney movie, and my teen self is thanking Adeline um for that song, because you’ve hit some emotions girl for real,

you hit some emotions!"
Shereen Cutkelvin, 

BBC Radio Scotland

Indian producer SubSpace collabs with Korean-American singer Adeline Um for an intriguing, buoyant new song called “Someone, Someday.” Brimming with hope, the song offers a sort of East-West fusion, with Um’s breathy vocal melodies tailor-made for EDM, which SubSpace delivers in familiar yet charged-up conviction. The two beat drops in the three-minute song bend synth patterns in a manner that’s reminiscent of Indian melodies, making it readily memorable."

"Making some divine music, therefore, I'm certainly claiming her for Scotland"
