Got some kind words from the good folks in Columbia, SC, for our show this weekend. First press trickling in about the new album..
“The last time we heard from the Athens-based Americana musician Adam Klein, he was promoting a project of original, traditional-style Malian Mande songs performed in the Bambara language, a latter-day Graceland that met the indigenous artists more than halfway. This time around he’s preparing to release a new album, Sky Blue DeVille, a more rocking Americana album featuring a warm, luxurious sound anchored by The Wild Fires’ ace lead guitarist Crash Cason and guest Southern rock legends Randall Bramblett and Ike Stubblefield on organ and keys. Of course, all would be for naught without Klein’s signature evocative, nostalgia-tinged songs and vocals, both of which earn favorable comparisons to contemporaries like Romantica and Josh Ritter.”- K. Peterson. Columbia Free Times
“Adam Klein, an Athens-based singer-songwriter, is releasing his new album, “Sky Blue Deville,” next month. The title track is decidedly Americana, but there are welcome country inflections and the song beckons a slow dance.”- Otis Taylor, ‘Pick of the Week’, The State
And thanks go to Scott Foley of KRFC‘s Routes & Branches in Fort Collins, CO, and Uncle Gram of WUSC‘s Red Bank Bar & Grille for spinning tracks on their radio shows.
