Serenade & Adoré (2023)

Calgary, AB

Calgary duo Serenade & Adoré – consisting of Temitope "Serenade" Alao and George "Adoré" El Fakhouri – make dark R&B influenced by cold Canadian nights, long winters and self-seclusion roots. Think early The Weeknd releases, dipped in a bit of Jeremih and Future. Serenade’s ability to quiver between vibrato and falsetto is impressive, and so too are the more than 400,000 streams on Apple Music and Spotify they’ve acquired.
