Born in Georgia and raised in east Tennessee Adam Hill is down from the mountain and gone with the wind. Calssic shut in loner kid making bedroom albums and soaking up the whole of music history gave way to his early 20's fronting Knoxville's The Satellite Pumps. Courted by Bloodshot and others, sharing stages with the old 97's, whiskey town and the waco brothers their pop-a-billy punk show turned souras love affairs within the band split it like fleetwood mac. Before long adam was back on the horse with the raggedettes a junk blues rock n roll band. This outfit released a record called lo-fi goodbye on knoxville label S&L records. Adam moved to NYC and played lead guit box for Philly's Second Manassass. Now in Nashville adam has released 'willingness'' a stark country bluesy rock n roll record laid down to 4 track in his bedrrom. Willingness is a storybook of floods and fury from folk blues 'Mystery City' about Oak Ridge the east Tennessee home of the atom bomb to soul punk of 'in the mood for love'. As label mate Greg Parker put it, 'it's a southern gothic velvet underground.'
