Adey works in a wide range of repertoire. She has created soprano roles in new operas by many contemporary composers and made concert and recital appearances at most leading recital venues in a ridiculously wide range of repertoire.
She is an Associate Artist at Battersea Arts Centre, developing new and experimental work, and also sings with The Shout. She leads workshops with community groups and works in signed song with the Deaf. She founded and directs the ensemble The Curate's Egg.
She sits on the board of the Society for the Promotion of New Music and was for 8 years an artistic advisor to the Stoke Newington Festival. She is the author of one book and numerous songs and libretti.
If that does not exhaust you, she also gardens and is a dab hand with a two-speed hammer drill.
