Biography

Adam Carroll was born and raised in Texas, a state that has produced more than a few singer/songwriters with an uncanny ability to read the souls and touch the hearts of their listeners. With Far Away Blues, his debut album for Blue Corn Music, Adam Carroll joins the short list of down- home storytellers able to take the everyday events of ordinary lives and turn them into deeply moving, and often quite humorous, songs. Far Away Blues is more introspective, and more cohesive than his previous albums, but it has the same melodic invention and commanding poetic voice that earned South of Town and Lookin’ Out the Screen Door nationwide rave reviews (see enclosed press sheet) and considerable airplay. Carroll is already a major artist in Texas; Far Away Blues is sure to take that buzz nationwide.

Far Away Blues, like Carroll’s other studio albums, was produced by Lloyd Maines, a man known for his ability to create an intimate studio atmosphere. The album projects the warmth of a living room get together; down to the brief spoken introductions Carroll gives to each song. “I usually mention the title of each tune before I play it. Lloyd suggested leaving the intros in, to get the home made feel we were aiming for.

“My first two albums were just collections of songs I’d written,” Carroll explained.
