Adam Faucett & The Tall Grass

#sxsw #AdamFaucett&TheTallGrass


Listen to Saturday

Drawing comparisons from Townes Van Zandt to Tim Buckley to Otis Redding... Adam Faucett is most known for his powerful, almost operatic voice and intricate finger-picking.

The Arkansas native's sound has been described as "somewhere between Otis Redding's soul shout and Cat Power's swampy poeticism."

A true road runner, Adam has been criss-crossing the country for 5 years, sharing the stage with Lucero, Calexico, The Legendary Shack Shakers, Vetiver, Chuck Ragan of Hot Water Music, Damien Jurado and Elf Power.

Faucett's most recent album More Like A Temple pushes out in all directions, simultaneously more folk, more rock, more melodic, more soul, and more sinister than all of his previous work.

"Hands down, one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer certainly one of the most respected songsmiths around. Adam Faucett manages to get under your ribs, effortlessly." --Arkansas Times
