Born and raised in the Bay, Iranian-American singer-songwriter Adrienne Shamszad hops on the mic and shares her voice with We Rise listeners, debuting her first full-length album in 15 years: Wash It All Away!

Adrienne's music is dedicated to our collective liberation - and is an intimate incantation of her heart. Equal parts silly and heartfelt, Cat and Adrienne get into it on this episode of the We Rise podcast, and share some new jams from Wash It All Away, both live (and spontaneous!) and from the album.

From Adrienne:
"The creation of this album has been a process of making peace with myself, and embracing the life I have now. It is allowing me to let go of a lot that has been holding me back, and grieve the loss of what the passage of time takes from all of us. A beautiful outcome of this transformation is that I have found a way to make use of the old dreams that never bloomed; they have become compost for the new dreams that are thriving.

It is also my life story. The story of longing for true connection, falling in love, catching glimpses of God, and it’s a story of surrender. I hope hope hope these songs will resonate with YOU."
