While she might appear a little shy when you first meet her and the kind of person who's happier to simply blend into the background, Adie certainly wasn't afraid to rock as the frontwoman for The Benjamin Gate. With her spiky red hair, seemingly never-ending energy and the insatiable charisma that couldn't help but draw an audience in, Adie was one of Christian rock's most captivating performers.
Even though the group called it quits in 2003, Adie's passion for communicating her faith through music hasn't wavered, which is particularly remarkable these days when she's busier than ever as a wife and mother to two young daughters, Isabella and Arianne, who are both under the age of two. And if she wasn't ambitious enough, she's also recently opened a hip new clothing store in her small Indiana hometown.
After The Benjamin Gate broke up Adie and Jeremy Camp, who've been married for nearly three years, began writing songs for her solo debut, Don't Wait. With their experiences as recording artists and the couple's innate ability to be honest with each other about what works and what doesn't stylistically, Adie says she couldn't have asked for a better working situation.
Ultimately, it's the couple's personal and professional camaraderie, along with Adie's expressive voice that makes Don't Wait such a unique and compelling offering. With a sound akin to singer/songwriter Butterfly Boucher and the more electronic pop approach of Frou Frou, Don't Wait is a seasoned, more introspective departure from Adie's more aggressive rock roots in The Benjamin Gate.
To get in the right frame of mind for her upcoming tour with Jeremy, Adie's been leading worship at a women's Bible study at her church, something that reminds her why she's on stage in the first place. "It helps me to regain focus as opposed to thinking of singing being a performance," Adie adds. "It is really just an affirmation of music being a tool to worship the Lord."
