Can you still be an optimist when your glass looks half-empty? If you happen to be a character in one of Adam Kenyon's songs trying to forget your woman, your troubles, and your nagging conscience with a glass of whiskey the answer might just be yes. Adam is a singer-songwriter who writes soul-searching music about people struggling to save their lives and their loves from themselves and their own self-absorption. Humor and pathos are the unique and bittersweet ingredients that make his music so appetizing. He doesn't dish up weepy tearjerkers or starve his listeners with empty cynicism. Self-destructive behavior is often both silly and tragic, and Adam uses this combination to create genuine empathy between the listener and the singer. And in the end, deep down, it's also clear that Adam is an optimist. Not the kind, who denies or avoids reality, but one who really believes that broken hearts can be mended and participate in not idealized fairytales, but meaningful relationships. This hope comes from his recognizing that all of life is spiritual and that in that realization, meaning, fulfillment and even happiness can be found. Adam's musical cuisine is naturally flavored with an acoustic guitar that grows someplace between Indie, Alt Country and Americana, where guys named Earl do some serious ruminatin' about women named Lurleen and big city boys wonder whether they've got what it takes to earn a cowgirl's love. The music is dowsed in Adam's Special Recipe smooth-flowing big-range vocals. Adam loves to serve up his music in everyday language and country-fried clichés, but adds his own surprisingly fresh, sophisticated twists that make his songs really stick to the listener's ribs. Adam Kenyon is proof that a singer-songwriter can make something both good for you and great tasting too!
