Adele Wiki Biography, Age, Height, Husband, Net Worth, Family

In 2002, aged 14, Adele discovered Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald as she stumbled on the artists’ CDs in the jazz section of her local music store. She was struck by their appearance on the album covers. Adele states she then “started listening to Etta James every night for an hour,” and in the process was getting “to know my own voice.” Adele credits Amy Winehouse and her 2003 album Frank for inspiring her to take up the guitar, stating, “If it wasn’t for Amy and Frank, one hundred per cent I wouldn’t have picked up a guitar, I wouldn’t have written “Daydreamer” or “Hometown [Glory]” and I wrote “Someone Like You” on the guitar too.” She also states that her mother, who is very close to her, exposed her to the music of Aaliyah, Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige, and Alicia Keys, all of whom inspired her as well. On the rock band Queen, she states, “I love them. I’m the biggest Queen fan ever. They’re the kind of band that’s just in your DNA, really. Everyone just knows who they are.” She is also a fan of Lana Del Rey, Grimes, Chvrches, FKA Twigs, Alabama Shakes, Kanye West, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Frank Ocean, and Stevie Nicks. In 2017, she described Beyoncé as a particular inspiration, calling her “my artist of my life” and added “the other artists who mean that much to me are all dead.” Adele cited Madonna’s album Ray of Light as a “chief inspiration” behind her album 25. Adele mentioned that Taylor Swift is the inspiration of her song “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)”, with Adele stating “I was in New York, writing “Remedy” with Ryan Tedder. We were having lunch, and “I Knew You Were Trouble” came on the radio — Taylor’s song that she did with Max Martin and Shellback. I was like, ‘Who did this?’ I knew it was Taylor, and I’ve always loved her, but this is a totally other side — like, ‘I want to know who brought that out in her.’ And he said Max Martin. I was unaware that I knew who Max Martin was. I Googled him, and I was like, ‘He’s literally written every massive soundtrack of my life.’ So I got my management to reach out. They came to London, and I took my guitar along and was like, ‘I’ve got this riff,’ and then “Send My Love” happened really quickly. Max Martin, I just could hang out with him forever. He’s so beautiful and lovely and funny and generous and warm and caring. He’s a really amazing man.”
