I just stumbled upon this DELIGHTFUL musician and his DELICIOUS music tonight! His name is Peter Adams, and I can’t wait for you to hear him!
Here’s the totally random way it happened: I was looking for a website for a lovely (but now-defunct) pop/folk duo, eastmountainsouth. I couldn’t find one, so I started looking up the people in the duo to see if they had done any solo projects. The guy half is named Peter Adams, so I clicked on the first link google gave me, which is the above link.
Here’s a blurb from his website:
Wandering through a floating jungle with a string band and stumbling onto a ruined city of waterlogged bass drums, mossy chord organs, and a tribe of harmoniums dancing in anarchic fervor to a primeval phonograph of the moon singing to the ocean.
Peter Adams is a critically-acclaimed musician from Cincinnati whose self-made albums have received worldwide attention. Mixing a variety of styles and influences, Peter creates a lush musical world that is entirely his own.
He writes, produces and plays everything on his albums, and the music is SO gorgeous! He uses bells, violin, accordion, guitar and who knows what else to create lovely songs. Rob said it reminded him of music that would accompany a magical children’s book story.
AND he has “pay what you want” pricing for his downloads.
***Update – I sent him an email and he wrote back. See, he’s friendly also! He comes to Nashville for shows sometimes, so we’ll all have to go next time, ok?
