Adam Zwig has partnered with Yahoo! Music to exclusively premiere the music video for his lead single “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues.” The single is off of the singer-songwriter’s newly released album—Adam Zwig: Live at the Wiltern Theatre—which premiered on Billboard (HERE). Zwig’s stage presence and intimate connection with the audience can be seen on the video during his performance of the inspired cover of the 1965 original song by Bob Dylan. Watch the video exclusively on Yahoo! MusicHERE.
“I absolutely love playing at the Wiltern Theatre,” says Zwig. “The vibe is magical and the sound is fantastic. ‘Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues’ has such great surrealist lyrics that I just had to put it into our set.”
Zwig— whose music encompasses a range of styles, from folk and country to rock and blues—released his seventh album, Adam Zwig: Live at the Wiltern Theatre, on December 11, 2015 and is available on iTunes HERE. The 11-track LP, recorded live at the prestigious Art Deco theatre in Los Angeles, brings Zwig’s artful amalgam of folk, indie, roots, and rock to life like never before. Zwig and his band deliver one entire uncut performance on the album, and the undeniable connection he has with the crowd can be heard on every song. Grammy Award-winning engineer David Bianco (U2, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash) preserved the ambience of the venue, allowing the audience a voice in the process. Additionally, Neal Casal, known for his work with Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Ryan Adams & the Cardinals, guests on the album, laying backing vox on select tracks.
“Something happened that night at the Wiltern,” said Bianco. “Adam and the band really hit their stride. Everyone played out of their minds! It was magic!”
July 30 saw the release of the album’s lead single “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues”which, following Zwig’s numerous Top Ten AC Radio hits throughout his career, reached No. 9 on the AC Top 200 chart. Elmore Magazine premiered the track and raved, “…great single choice to demonstrate his incomparable connection with the audience.” Key songs from the album also premiered on The Bluegrass Situation, Monsters and Critics as well as Glide Magazine who noted, “Zwig may be known as a ‘contemporary’ artist, but his new live album reveals something far more dynamic.”
