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.

I've seen Adam play here in College Station/Bryan for the past few years and he keeps getting better and better. I remember the first time I saw him play live at Fitzwilly's for the KEOS benefit when he was late and Mark Jungers had to cover till he got there. I've seen his following here in BCS grow and the last show I saw at 3rd Floor Cantina was awesome. I always wanted to hear Adam play with a some lead guitar and there it was. I suggest that if you get a chance go check him out. He has his own story telling sound that he can pull right in. 8/25--Old Oak Icehouse, Marble Falls 9/11--Clubhouse Concerts, Fort Worth 9/12--Inn of the Hills, Kerrville 9/20--Cheatham St. Warehouse, San Marcos 9/21--Cactus Cafe, Austin 9/22--Casbeers, San Antonio 9/24--Railroad Blues, Alpine 10/6--Cheetham Street Warehouse, San Marcos 10/15-Lazy Boy Supper Club, Archer City 10/21--The Cabaret Cafe & Dance Hall, Bandera

Carroll Fan
Been waiting for this one for a while, so it's hard to be totally objective, but a couple of the songs bring back the old magic. A few others feel kind of like filler, which is a first for AC. Worth it for the title track alone, and still one of the most consistently engaging live performers in Texas.

I was dreaming this morning that someone was talking to me about dreaming of me when the Mississippi flows, and there was beautiful guitar music playing... as I slowly opened my eyes and realized my radio-alarm-clock was playing the music (not my dream), I immediately called the radio station to find out it was "Rice Birds" by Adam Carroll off his new Faraway Blues CD. Before today I had never heard of Adam Carroll. Thank you KZSC for waking me up to it! What a wonderful song!

Wow! Another great album. It's the first album in a long time that I listened to beginning to end and liked every song. This guy is about as real as it gets.

I first saw Adam open for Todd Snider some years ago and have been a fan ever since. He blew me away. What a great singer/songwriter. Anyone who can write a song about snowcones, and it's a good one, has my vote. Excellent job Adam.

Great songwriter, in fact, probably the most talented young songwriter in the country. But, where is the new material? Has Adam burnt out? Is he still writing? I hope the hell so... Please someone, help me... I need more Adam Carroll!
