“The pastoral imagery combined with Adam’s gentle guitar plucking and tender falsetto create a comforting atmosphere akin to the feeling I get when I listen to John Denver.”
Dude. Exactly this.

I have learned to trust DZ Tapes. With each successive cassette that the small tape label has released they have proven themselves to be dealers of quality content. And their most recent release from folky troubadour Adam Torres is no exception.
I don’t find myself dabbling in the singer/songwriter genre very often for my own reasons, but when I began listening to Adam’s self-titled album, I pushed all of those things to the back of my mind. The tracks here force the listener to simply revel in their simple beauty. Adam has a very old soul and it’s pretty evident that it is working it’s way down into his music. The pastoral imagery combined with Adam’s gentle guitar plucking and tender falsetto create a comforting atmosphere akin to the feeling I get when I listen to John Denver. It’s a great release that really needs to be checked out.
Grab a tape from the DZ Tapes store and then scoop the album for free on the label’s bandcamp page while you’re at it.
