It’s not the kind of thing you’d expect to hear from a guy whose public persona includes a mohawk, black jeans, chains and leather cuffs:“I love opera,” Will Moore says. “The worlds aren’t so different. They both come from such a natural place ... it’s less focused on technique and more on your ability to just let go.”
Moore is the lead singer of The Adarna, a rising Seattle rock band that’s headed for Leavenworth this weekend. Realistically, the band could have run with any musical genre when they formed two years ago. Their lead guitarist, Andrea Jasek, sometimes slips into a Van Halen solo — a nod to her ’80s hair-metal roots. They picked up a talented jazz drummer from New York via Craigslist, and their bassist — a punk-influenced spray-paint artist — in a Harley Davidson shop.
