Celebrity Adele Musical Career
2006–08: Career beginnings

Adele graduated from The BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon in May 2006, where she was classmates with Leona Lewis and Jessie J. Adele credits the school with nurturing her talent. In school, she was more interested in going into A&R, and hoped to launch other people’s careers. Four months later, she published two songs on the fourth issue of the online arts publication PlatformsMagazine.com. She had recorded a three-song demo for a class project and gave it to a friend who posted it on Myspace where it became very successful and led to a phone call from music label XL Recordings. She doubted if the offer was real because the only record company she knew was Virgin Records, and she took a friend with her to the meeting. Nick Huggett at XL recommended Adele to manager Jonathan Dickins at September Management and in June 2006 Dickins became her official representative. September was managing Jamie T at the time and this proved a major attraction for Adele who was a big fan of the English singer-songwriter. Huggett then signed Adele to XL in September 2006.

She said in Nylon magazine in June 2009, “I was drinking far too much and that was kind of the basis of my relationship with this boy. I couldn’t bear to be without him, so I was like, ‘Well, OK, I’ll just cancel my stuff then … I can’t believe I did that … It seems so ungrateful”. In November 2008 Adele moved to Notting Hill after leaving her mother’s house, a move that prompted her to give up drinking.

The first single is a revenge tune “Rolling in the Deep”, Adele described it as a “dark bluesy gospel disco tune.” The single was a major success and was well received by critics.

To promote the album, Adele will perform in Europe and North America on her Adele Live tour. The tour has become a profound success with the entire North American leg sold out. Her audience at a May 2011 concert at the Beacon Theater in New York was described as a “varied blend as they shuffle to the exits—some are tearstained, some are whistling” with “snatches of regretful conversation between women, missing one man, still resenting another”.
