Biography

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.
