Adam Cousens describes his sound as folk dance rock, rough guitar finger pick’ n, smoothly bleeding vocals with a raspy edge, sometimes dancing music for the thinker, sometimes mellow and sombre, acoustic stomping, guitar slapping. Ideas that will make you question, melody that will have you singing by the last verse.
Cousens released his second EP “Running Over Rooftops” in November 2007 after the success of his debut EP “Beautiful People” in 2006 that sold over 3,500 copies at gigs alone.
Recently Cousens was selected as a finalist in four categories in the Tasmanian Amplified Awards. He carried away the trophies for Best Song (Running Over Rooftops) Best Solo Artist, and Best Songwriter, an impressive haul.
Cousens uses music as a tool to question, and oftentimes challenge the status quo.
“I can’t stand ‘wallpaper music’,” Cousens said.
“Music doesn’t mean anything unless it touches people,” he said
