ADAM CARROLL Singer/Songwriter Tyler, TX; 1975 - ADAM CARROLL joins the short list of down-home storytellers taking events of ordinary lives and turning them into deeply moving, often humorous songs. Though he's kept a low profile, his past three records have earned him critical acclaim throughout the world. “The core of what I do is songwriting; it's the one thing I'm passionate about. It's the most fulfilling and challenging job I can imagine." From his first studio record, South of Town, through Far Away Blues, to his latest release, OLD TOWN ROCK N ROLL, the quality of Adam Carroll’s songwriting never wavers. Adam Carroll is one of those songwriters with a rare command of the English language as well as an amazing sense of melody. It's little surprise that he's earned enviable comparisons to the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Todd Snider, John Prine, and even Bob Dylan. Like those songwriters, Carroll uses ironic (but heartfelt) humor to leaven his sometimes personal, usually emotional, and always poignant observations. His upcoming record, Old Town Rock N Roll, hits the shelves in the spring of 2008, and is an intimate tapestry of life on (and off) the road. "Life can be screwed up," Carroll explaines. "And while I'm not a zippity do dah kind of guy, when I write a song, there's always a kind of redemption in it. I don't know if I have a brighter outlook than anybody else - I get driven crazy by some stuff - but laughing, even when things aren't really funny, keeps me going." Adam Carroll begins his international tour to support Old Town Rock N Roll in May.

Adam's music has had a major influence on my life and many of the people around me. It helped to influence my decision to get into the booking industry and guided many of my musically gifted friends to progress their talents become true musicians. Thank you Adam.

Oh my gosh! Red Bandana Blues is the first song I heard by Adam. Then I went looking for the album, all I found was Far Away Blues...once again, extremely impressed. They need to send out alot more copies to music stores because I refuse to have a credit card. I really want to hear more from this guy!

I had the joy of watch Adam along with Steve Poltz, Beaver Nelson, and Scrappy Jud Newcomb in October. They were all great and put on a wonderful show together, and although Adam was the most quiet and reserved, in my mind he stole the show. Once he began to sing, he lit up and told these wonderful stories set to music...a rare talet. Adam is the real deal, a true artist, and I can't wait to see him play again!

I became introduced to Adam Carroll when he played at a local music store recently. After listening to several free 30-second clips on Far Away Blues, I finally made the purchase. The album can stand on "Rice Birds" and "Dream On" alone, that's how great these two songs are. The guitar playing and recording is exquisite. Even when some of the songs' melodies seem to lack originality ("All the Way" reminds me of the children's song "Camptown Races"), the lyrics and crisp guitar-picking more than make up for it. The songs have a personal feel to them, as if Adam is singing each song directly to me. The beautiful "Picture Show" reminds me of a classic George Harrison tune. Maybe with more listens, I'll give it 5 stars. Can't wait to see Adam when he comes around here again.
