Dublin, Ireland (1999 – present)

Adrian Crowley is an Irish singer-songwriter (born 1979). Crowley is a native of Barna, County Galway, but he lives in Dublin. He released his first album, “”A Strange Kind”, in 1999.

His music sounds like “a heartbroken steam engine whistling Tennyson’s ‘In Memoriam’ as set to music by Leonard Cohen. (Not my own words, I’ll have you know)”, as Crowley wrote, on his MySpace page.

“Crowley’s music is steeped in the popular folk tradition of the 1970s, calling to mind storytelling songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake with a strong, often central emphasis on lyrics.” (Allmusic: Dave Donnelly)

In 2007 Crowley worked with bassist/producer Stephen Shannon to record the album ‘Long Distance Swimmer’, which was nominated for the Choice Music Prize in 2008. He released ‘Season of the Sparks’ in April 2009. The songs on this album were recorded around the same time as ‘Long Distance Swimmer’. In May 2009 he collaborated with James Yorkston and released ‘The Invaders Salute Captain America’, which is a tribute to underground U.S. songwriter Daniel Johnston.

    POLISH REVIEW Steve Adey – pewnie niewielu mówi coś ta osobowość, ale nic w tym dziwnego, kiedy mamy do czynienia z człowiekiem… czynu, który muzykę, a nie sławę, traktuje priorytetowo. Zadebiutował w 2006 roku dobrze przyjętym albumem „All Things Real” i długo kazał sobie czekać na wznowienie działalności w postaci kolejnego albumu długogrającego. Spytacie się – co można zdziałać przez 6 lat – ano można odrobić lekcję skandynawskiej melancholii, która od początku do końca przebija się przez najnowsze wydawnictwo uzurpujące do miana protoplasty future i electronic folku - „The Tower Of Silence”.

    got this from the wikipedia: 'Since I started doing music full time, I actually hear it in my sleep and sometimes wake up and wonder who left the stereo on — and it's really in my head. It's unbelievable. I think it's a kind of natural aural hallucination. I'll hear it as I'm waking — it might wake me. I'll be dreaming music but then it might take me out of my dream. Once I'm wide awake it's gone.' :D i already was in love, now i even know why ;)
