Following his excellent album Blueprints (2014), guitarist and songwriter Adam Karch continues to be inspired by blues and folk on his new album Moving Forward, which will be available June 17th 2016 on the Bros label.
Recorded in Montreal last winter, Moving Forward highlights a new maturity acquired over a year of paying dues and rocky roads. The album not only reveals his incredible talent as a guitarist, but also an authentic voice that fits perfectly into the roots genre.
Adam has a raw talent that was evident from the first time he picked up the guitar at an early age. By age 14, he was fronting bands, headlining clubs, and dazzling audiences with both his spirited guitar playing and soulful singing. His first album “Crossroad Diaries” (Justin Time Records 2002) was an exciting compilation of original songs that highlighted Adam’s impressive range and exceptionally fiery guitar playing. At this point, Adam toured relentlessly and as his shows began to lean more toward acoustic exploration, he developed his signature sound.
By the time “Cotton Fields” (Bros Records 2011) was released, the Adam Karch sound was clearly defined with its fingerpicking style that transcended the rock and roll ponderings of his first recordings. His next project “Blueprints” (Bros Records 2014) was a complete deconstruction of the blues and it led listeners to realize that a pop song when stripped down to its essence is indeed a blues song. Adam, the artist, is at once a chameleon and an innovator.
