Not to be mistaken for a Canadian rocker misprint, still basking in the rapturous critical acclaim for his Heartbreaker albums mournful confessionals of murder, depression and loss, the Whiskeytown frontman now brings his Gram/Prine/Hank/Dylan flavoured Americana out on solo tour for whats sure to prove a night of house full signs.
The sets likely to be spoiled for choice, for while hell be spotlighting the likes of In My Time Of Need, he surely wont be blind to the opportunity to showcase his bands own mostly buoyant new album, Pneumonia, which kickstarts the new Nashville-based Lost Highway label thatll also be releasing Billy Bob Thorntons debut.
While evoking the aforementioned influences with My Hometown, Ballad of Carol Lynn and Reason To Lie, the album also illustrates the span of Adams musical wings, Paper Moon an Hawaiian Patsy Cline croon, Dont Wanna Know Why doing a lazy jug band shuffle, Crazy About You strutting Petty and Mirror almost Ben Folds Five showtuning. Gig of the month status looms.
