Artist Biography by

b. 22 December 1948, Bristol, Avon, England. Webber is a singer-songwriter who has not exactly been prolific with her recorded output. She started playing guitar in local folk clubs at the age of 13, and two years later was one of the residents at the Bristol Troubadour. Webber then turned professional, working the cabaret circuit under the name Adrienne. She continued doing this for the next five years before in 1970 she undertook a major tour of American Universities. She worked with artists such as Paul Simon, Crosby, Stills, Nash And Young, Gordon Lightfoot, and the Everly Brothers. On returning to England she moved to London, and played regular dates at the Marquee Club, making as many as 28 appearances in one year, as well a touring as support to Frank Zappa and the Eagles. In the process she rapidly gained a reputation for being a quality support act. Her first album included guest artists such as Albert Lee, Gerry Conway and Michael D’Abo. In 1977 Webber appeared on Justin Hayward’s first solo release, Songwriter. Her second release, Of This Land, was recorded in Phillip Goodhand-Tait’s studio, and released on his Gun Dog label. Webber also made appearances on television programmes as diverse as The Cliff Richard Show and The Old Grey Whistle Test. During the mid-80s Webber took a break from music to raise a family, but continued to write songs. Much of this material appeared on Running Out Of Sky. This album encompasses folk, country and soft rock styles, and was largely well received.
