Not blues, but a folk/rock tale of love, longing and loss, with nods to 60's and 70s acoustic and electric rock and roll.
Blake is a singer/songwriter/guitar player based out of Huntsville, Alabama. The songs on this album were mined from years of travel, cassettes, mp3 player/recorders, notebooks and a veritable grocery aisle of restaurant napkins. Mr. Adams' Blues encapsulates the journey of love, loss, and the reflection that comes when it's all "long gone."
Says Blake, "Each song on the album stands on its own, but there's a story there if you listen from start to finish. There's a longing portrayed in the first few songs, which is briefly resolved before turning to feelings of regret and loss by the end of the album."
With an accessible yet reflective sound, Mr. Adams' Blues is the kind of album that lends itself to both first and repeated listens.
