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.

WOW! What an amazing talent. Adam has truly harnesed the art of songwriting and of entertaining. It is very refreshing to go to a bar like the "Blue Light" in lubbock and see a guy with a stool, two guitars and his thoughts pour his heart out to an audience of 20 just like he does to an audience of 300. What a great performer and wonderful writer!

"Small Town" is one of the best CD's I own. If you are a Townes Van Zandt fan, Adam Carroll will bring Townes back to life. No Nashville sounds just clean and pure Texas folk. Adam's lyrics are the best I've heard in a long time with great guitar to boot.

Adam Carroll is a lyrical genius. He is one of the greatest songwriters ever.

He's short, he's funny looking, he has a voice that could be a used as a narative for a Walt Disney Nature Movie about Prairie Chickens. But when you look up the definition for Word Smith in the dictionary his picture is next to it. Adam Carrol is the Washington Irving of Folk Country Music. This guy paints pictures in your head with his words. A Steven Speilberg who dosen't need film.
