Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Simon Adams. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I really liked the energy of his music.
What a beautiful atmosphere that Simon Adams proposes to us, a typically British way of making music that immediately reminded me of the Beatles.
These Eternal harmonies are able to speak to the heart
I especially liked the guitars that in the way they were plucked in some passages reminded me of the sounds of the Caribbean islands.
This mix of styles is the strength of this talented artist who undoubtedly knows music very well and feels it in his soul.
The chord progression is refined and the harmonic choices are never trivial.
Simon is careful with every nuance and the sound and the mix make this song live well… like a child that begins to walk and then in a blink of an eye is already running.
Nostalgic and sweet melodies that excite and create the right atmosphere for those red sunsets where you remain enchanted admiring the sea.
Something In The Air is Simon Adams’s Album Out Now!
Powerful energy from a young artist with a great attitude!
Simon Adams has been a bit of a legend in his home town Brighton for many years as a fabulous session drummer and character. No one knew, including himself, that he could write classy, classic songs until about 5 years ago when his singing and songwriting arrived fully formed. His music is in the timeless songsmith tradition of musicians such as Ron Sexsmith and Bill Callahan. But he is very much his own man and records and produces his music from home.
‘Something In The Air’ is his first solo single and has beautiful playing and melodies but is about pollution and global warming. Clever really. The single is taken from his album to be released in the summer.
‘Something In The Air’ is dropped on 25th January on CowChow records. CowChow was formed by himself and 4 other musicians and is administered by musician/producer Steve Lovell.
