As lead singer and songwriter of San Francisco duo Two Gallants, Adam Stephens (with band mate Tyson Vogel) released four critically acclaimed albums and toured incessantly over the past five years. A well-deserved break was finally taken providing Adam with a chance to write material for a new project. After forming a band and playing various west coast shows over the past year, Adam went into Sunset Sound and Kingsize Soundlabs in Los Angeles and recorded his debut solo record with producer Joe Chiccarelli (My Morning Jacket, The Shins, White Stripes).Read More...
The result is his debut solo album WE LIVE ON CLIFFS. Set for a September 28th release on Saddle Creek, WE LIVE ON CLIFFS features Adam on vocals, guitar and piano and a list of guest musicians including Patrick Hallahan and Bo Koster (My Morning Jacket), Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Cody Votolato (Blood Brothers / Jaguar Love), Mike Daly, Petra Haden, Andy Cabic (Vetiver) and current band members Jen Grady, Matt Montgomery and Omar Cuellar.
Beginning August 7th in Salt Lake City, UT, Adam will head out as a four-piece band for a 9-date club tour to premiere these new songs to fans. Tour dates above and advance tickets are on sale now.
To get things going, an album track entitled The Cities That You've Burned is available for free download at www.adamhstephens.com
From beginning to end, WE LIVE ON CLIFFS is a shimmering blend of alternative folk with a pop sensibility full of first-person narratives that when combined create a marvelously eclectic, both musically and emotionally, collection. And while there is a natural bridge between Two Gallants and Stephen’s solo work, these songs contain an introspection that has not been touched on before. “These songs are about desperation,” says Stephens. “The desperation to make something of living, to find a sense of ease, to find someone to love and to maintain that fleeting feeling of love.”
