Maverick review, in full, below:
Rustic country/folk rock from the Athens, GA troubadour
This is the sixth such offering from singer/songwriter Adam Klein who it seems can’t release albums frequently enough to keep up with his prolific song-writing. Released on his own Cowboy Angel label, the album is Klein’s most powerful, rawest and rockiest effort to date. Soaring electric guitar, organ with throbbing drums and bass give things a distinctive West Coast feel and at times it’s almost possible to draw a comparison with Neil Young and Crazy Horse. In fact, Klein pays homage to Young, covering one of his more obscure numbers, “Bad Fog of Loneliness”. Jason Eshelman (drums), Andy Pope (bass) and David Weiglein (electric guitar) make up the core of the backing band with producer Bronson Tew adding finishing touches on a variety of instruments. Contributions from Eric Carlton (keyboards) and Stuart Cole (bass) of Mississippi roots outfit Jimbo Mathus & the Tri-State Coalition lift the bar even higher. Things calm down for the final two tracks, “Wild Goose Chase” and “Heartbreak Airplane”; a couple gentle ballads, but otherwise Klein maintains a great rocking tempo throughout to create a thoroughly listenable set. “Boybutante Dreams”, about a man transitioning to a woman, emphasizes that the artist is confident tackling the most controversial of subjects, and it’s a great song. I particularly liked the opening track “Song for a New Year” which sets the pace and tone for much of the rest of the album. This one is sure to find its way into my CD tray pretty regularly.”- John Roffey

Welcome to the new year. Sad to see so many great, important musicians passing on these past few weeks.
What’s new? Here’s a bit of an update:
Archer’s Arrow is only 1/3 of a year old at this point. Visit the Store page or links to the right to download your copy and rock out.
Did a video shoot for unreleased song “Mine War” this weekend thanks to Braeden Orr of Single Serving Pictures and SCAD in Atlanta. Keep an eye out for that.
The Wild Fires are reconfiguring slightly and will be out playing some regional shows this spring and summer. You won’t wanna miss this powerhouse line-up! And…
The next album, Low Flyin’ Planes, was recorded at Dial Back Sound studio in Mississippi not too long ago, and we plan on mixing it in the spring. Really excited for that one to get out and be heard. Had a crack team of players lay it down including Bronson Tew, Crash Cason, Matt Patton (The Dexateens, Drive-By Truckers), Stu ‘Baby’ Cole (Jimbo Mathus), Kell Kellum, and Will McCarley. Our friend Jeff Shipman was on hand documenting the proceedings for a short film. Look for an opportunity in the next few months to pre-order the album, get a hold of other prizes, and help get this sucker launched in late 2016 or 2017!
Stay close, y’all..
