If you liked Adam's first cd, you will love this one. It is pretty much the same style. Unbelievable songwriting. If you havent heard Adam Carroll, this is a must have cd. By far the most creative songwriter out there right now......

Saw Adam open up for Charlie Robison in Corpus Cristi and he is on fire!!!!!! If you have a chance to see one of his shows soon, don't miss it. His new CD doesn't have a bad song on it. A great Texas storyteller on the rise.......

Adam Carroll
Artist Review
Adam Carroll has done it again. In 1998, when he released his debut album, "South of Town," the Tyler native set Texas troubadour fans on their ears. Only 23 when "South of Town" came out, Carroll sounded as if someone had put the best parts of John Prine, Townes Van Zandt and Butch Hancock together in a package that might be too good to be true. But Carroll hit the highway and worked the album, and new tunes, across the country and over to Europe. He proved he was true, truly intrepid and truly talented. An engaging sort who acts as if he's never met a stranger, Carroll looks like everyone's little brother but sounds as if he's been around for much longer than a couple of decades. Carroll's songs are short stories that chronicle people, places and things about as well as they're being chronicled these days. Thursday at 8:30 p.m. Carroll will take over Casbeers to celebrate the release of a new album, "Lookin' Out the Screen Door." Like "South of Town," the new disc was produced by Lloyd Maines. But Maines didn't have to pull a muscle on this one; at least he didn't have to pull an obvious muscle. About as spare as an album can be, "Lookin' Out the Screen Door" focuses on Carroll's words, voice, acoustic guitar and harmonica. Maines plays his always-tasteful steel guitar and baritone guitar and Bukka Allen kicks in a bit of accordion and Hammond organ. But that's just fine. When Carroll launches into tunes about tool pushers, snow cones and the ramifications thereof, a photo model, old men, lost love, beer, a lost cowboy and comic-strip characters, his words and his ability to sell his songs are all that matter. People who have watched Carroll work live have known he's the real deal for a long time. People who know him only from recordings now have a second one to prove "South of Town" was no lucky shot.

Adam Carroll
Artist Review
Adam Carroll is a legendary Texas singer-songwriter in-the-making. The comparisons are obvious: Townes Van Zandt, Butch Hancock, John Prine and Bob Dylan. But make no mistake, he's his own man weaving his own tales. With his sophomore release, Carroll continues painting pictures of roads and rivers, the love-struck and lovesick, friends and outcasts. At the core are his warm voice and acoustic guitar, occasionally accented by accordion, harmonica or pedal steel. Producer Lloyd Maines (father of Dixie Chick Natalie) provides this ideal backdrop. Maines is known for finding and producing up-and-coming songwriters such as Richard Buckner, Terri Hendrix and Wayne Hancock. Carroll's songs are full of humor, but never too funny. All about characters, but never caricatures. At 25, he is truly wise beyond his years.

Adam Carroll's South of Town relase is a wonderful effort. It remeinds me of the great Texas singer-songwriters like Guy Clark and Billy Joe Shaver. I am looking foward to his new record. James Blair, Arlington Texas.

South Of Town
Album Review
I bought this CD because I kept seeing great reviews on the site and I must say....wow! Adam Carroll is one of the best songwriters I've heard in a long, long, time... Adam's pen is his paintbrush and his songs paint a glorius mural of East Texas.

Adam Carroll
Artist Review
Whn first heard Adam Carroll's "Red Bandana Blues" while listening to "Skyline Radio" - a syndicated radio show played on several Oklahoma stations - I must say it knocked me out. I quickly purchased the CD and found that there were other songs on the album I liked even better. The imagery in songs like "Bubblegum" and "Smokey Mountain Taxi" made me think that Tom T. Hall was in his mid-20's and writing songs again. I know that Adam Carroll is often compared to John Prine, but I have to say that even if he never writes another song, he will be as important a song writer in years to come as Willis Alan Ramsey is now....
