Product Notes

'Adam Sweeney is one of the more talented young west coast songwriters.' --Tom May, River City Folk, WFMT Fine Arts Radio 'Adam Sweeney is a promising young folksinger... he combines intricate acoustic guitar hooks with powerful lyric storytelling.' --Passim, September 2005 'Adam Sweeney's sincere songwriting mixes impressionistic imagery, religious iconography and the kind of strikingly personal observations that seem lifted from a letter to a friend. That lyrical blend is delivered through appealing melodies and expressive singing, with a hint of grain to it that sometimes suggests a violin bow drawn tenderly over his vocal cords.' --Willamette Week (Portland, OR) 'A true folksinger... he weaves his words together telling stories of the times.' --The Southeast Examiner (Portland, OR) ******* Adam Sweeney cut his teeth as a songwriter in Portland, Oregon's thriving independent scene. Heavily influenced by local heroes Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer, Adams acoustic style and gospel-tinged lyrics pay tribute to new old-timers like Gillian Welch and Julie Miller as well as folk revival poets like Paul Simon and Cat Stevens. Adams debut album, Places & Names (2004), showcases his evocative lyrics and folk pop sensibility. It also features some of Portlands finest: soulful vocals by Anne Weiss and Bryan Free, lively accordion by Jenny Conlee (Decemberists) and the energetic stylings of bluegrass duo Jacob Henry & Bill Jolliff, whose song 'Laughlin Boy' was made a folk radio hit by Tracy Grammer. Adam has performed with acts like Tracy Grammer, Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem, Phillip Price (Winterpills), Erik Alan (The Amity Front), Jim Henry and Bret Vogel (Crosstide), among many others. Now based out of Northampton, Massachusetts, Adams songs have pricked the ears of prominent listening rooms like Club Passim, Lizard Lounge (Cambridge, MA), Pianos (NYC) and The Vanilla Bean Café (Pomfret, CT).
