Their genre is mainly Progressive House. Aduro's first single Sunrise 2012 was released in 2012. The release has a Dubstep track called Sunrise which was originally released online in early 2011. Sunrise 2012 contains some elements from the 2011 track which were reused to build a more danceable Progressive House track.
They are currently not signed to any label. 2. Fusing elements of post-rock with more traditional rock stylings, the Indie-Rock band Aduro from Norfolk, VA combines tight, driving drum and bass rhythms with ambient guitar and synth lines to provide a solid foundation for frontman Travis Heath’s powerful rock vocals. Their breakout single, “House of Cards,” took them to a dominant position regionally in early 2011. This success turned national when the band was voted the “best unsigned artist” out of over a thousand entrants and awarded a spot at the prestigious “Live in the Vineyard, Presented by Aloft Hotels.” Here, they were called “a band to watch” and shared the stage with national acts O.A.R., Jack’s Mannequin, Daughtry, Safety Suit, Javier Colon, and Christina Perri, among others.
Shortly after, they were announced as top 10 finalists in Jansport’s Battle of the Bands, an international competition between thousands of bands. As an unsigned act, the band relies heavily on their down-to-earth grassroots campaign to build a fanbase. Their musical and personal appeal has served them well; shortly after the start of their national success, Sonicbids praised this powerful connection between band and fans on their “Daily Gig Guide.” Independent blogs and radio stations have taken up the call to arms, with NPR’s “Out of the Box” naming them as one of the region’s “Top 10 Alt-Rock bands of 2011” and PopCultureShock praising their debut release: “Every track from the band’s current EP ‘Listen…‘ resonates with a musical vibe that’s a combination of edge, feel good and inspirational.” Aduro’s live shows are also lauded by reviewers, who frequently comment on the band’s personality. Though each member hails from a different part of the globe, they’ve formed powerful family-like bonds with one another. Their performances are tight and clean, and each member clearly values their relationship with the rest of the band.
