4 January 1986 (age 31)
Taking a break from European touring band ‘Her Name is Calla’ to concentrate on his solo efforts, Adam ‘Weikie’ Weikert’s debut album ‘Raise Our Sunken Ship’ saw it’s acclaimed self release this year on May 7th 2012- the anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania. A densely instrumented opus, it finds poignant footing alongside Adam’s tremulous Tracy Chapmanesque vocals. Banjos frail and fingers dextrously pick amidst lyrically ruminative ballads with tales of pathos and woe, flecked with salient optimism and sincere recall.
Live shows contrastingly mainly consist of a powerful solo acoustic set, laden with foot stomping traditionals and heart tugging originals. Switching back and forth between Banjo, Piano and Guitar the pace never slows as a comprehensive and choice overview of the many facets of folk and its modern connotations warms the audience and opens many a mind to the window of the singer songwriter.
