Andy Adams is an Oklahoma City based musician who has been performing around the City and State for over ten years. Vocally he possesses a wide spectrum of range and a variety of tone. He uses these aspects to add vivid and dramatic effect to enhance the mood and movement of the stories in his songs’. In combination with his guitar work this takes his narratives into enchanting tone poems. The authentic vocal commitment and scope of the narrative brings the listener out of the mundane and into a new world full of possibility.
Andy’s guitar techniques incorporate the essential Delta Blues style with a definitive Americana slant into a modern tradition of folkie fusion. The expanse of the rhythm spans the distance between the thunk of a chain gangs chuck and the winds’ long kiss as it whispers in the willows on a sultry summer night.
Many of his lyrical textures are literate self-contained accounts of everyday people with everyday problems. Each composition complete in soul and story in its own personal universe. Some of his more personal songs are boldly romantic in this time of shallow detachment and project a serious understanding of the love that makes relationships function without stress.
Andy Adams is an attractive bundle of talent. He can stand with the best vocally, as well as, on guitar, bass, harmonica.
