From Tucson, Arizona comes the debut album titled "Here Comes The Music," from Adara Rae & The Homewreckers. This album features performances from members of the punk bands MxPx and Good Charlotte, as well as premier studio musicians. The new twelve-song release begins with the country rock feel of "Miss Me Like Crazy" and the up-beat, pop-punk appeal of "Want You To Stay" that brings out the best of Adara Rae's vocals. Adara and the band have all the right ingredients for a hit single with "Here Comes The Music" and MxPx bassist Mike Herrera lends a hand on the chorus of "OK To Be OK." She slows the tempo down for the swaying ballad "If You Loved Me" which showcases the full potential of her voice, before closing the album with a live version of "See You Cry" as Adara Rae and the band lock into an alternative rock groove.
