Smooth voiced Adaline, hailing from Vancouver, has been something of a social media phenomenon. No, she didn't gain attention from her Myspace, or blog or LastFM... she rose to social networking relevance through a chance meeting with Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson and a 140 character update on Twitter.

The story goes something like this: Adaline was at a Juno's after party where she bumped into Pattinson. After a short conversation, Adaline took to her twitter page and posted that she had just met the Twilight golden boy. The rest is history. This seemingly irrelevant tweet, led to RobPattznews twitter account posting about the chance meeting, which led to a steady stream of curious Twilight fans to her Myspace page resulting in a new and unexpected fanbase for Adaline's music. After mere hours of her Twitter update, the singer had received 1,000+ messages and over 25,000 plays from around the world. Here are some examples:
"I have to admit that I found you because of the Robert Pattinson story but I'm so thankful for it, otherwise I would have missed great music! I'm totally in love with your music now! Do you know if I can buy your CD in Europe?"

Another from Erika in Australia says, "Hi Adaline, I just discovered your music thanks to your account of how you met Robert Pattinson. I really love your work and I'm going to order your album from CD Baby as soon as I post this. Any chance you might tour Australia, some time?"
Adaline's complex musical compositions, often including an array of instruments and a multitude of sounds from rock to classical, are being compared to the likes of, Cat Power, Katie Melua and Fiona Apple. Her debut album, Famous for Fire, has been met with critical acclaim and excitement.
