People We Love: Cisco Adler

A consummate musician and life-long Malibuite, Cisco Adler, a GRAMMY® Award-nominated songsmith and artist, is one of those affable, rockin’ locals who makes Malibu special. “I make music all day, every day,” Cisco said. “Being a musician and songwriter is in my soul.” Adler invites us to escape with him on a journey through rhythms and harmonies, through Sunday vibes and, of course, to enjoy the Hippiedance – clothing optional, free spiritedness included – with his latest album, Hippieland. This is the third full-length solo from Adler, and was produced by his own label, Bananabeat Records. Extremely danceable, fun-loving and always with a vintage feel, Cisco’s music has a coastal, easygoing vibe that is contagious. “Cisco has an organic-ness of a vibe, time and space in music,” said concert producer/promoter Matt Diamond. “I’ve witnessed him create unique styles of music that have reached charted successes and that have influenced and brought joy to many as fans and as musicians.” Adler is hard at work on additional projects he said, full of the excellent vibes and rhythms his fans have come to expect from his music. “I’m excited about my new album by Yung Pinch that I produced, co-wrote and executive-produced for Columbia Records,” Cisco said. “I also produced a couple of songs for Super Duper Kyle’s next album on Atlantic Records and my artist, Goody Grace, is about to drop his debut album on Bananabeat/Atlantic, and I also just finished work on an EP by Gabriel Black for RCA Records. The first single, “Dead Yet” just dropped.”  MM
