Songwriter, musician and singer Andy Adams new album Back to Square One to be released on November 10, with a single song release of the track Dancing Alone on October 16 via Creative Entertainment Network/The Orchard.
Everyone has a story to tell, artist Andy Adams catalogs his with honest emotions, roots rock riffs, Americana flavor, folkie fusion and a touch of Delta Blues. His songs are diaries glowing with warm, intricate layers, featuring catchy guitar hooks, soul-baring lyrics and soulful melodies that offer up his perspectives on love, loss, life and self-discovery.
When asked about his new songs Adams explains “Back to Square One is the admittance that it sometimes take a few times to actually quit something. When you wake up and say; “Today’s the day I change my life around.” And then you do the same thing a week or month later.” “I Could Love You Better Is a song to my wife LeeAnn. It’s about being in a relationship you feel is too good to be true. Understanding that you realize you’d better do all you can to not mess it up.” Adams continues, “If You Can Still Dance with It was written from a poem my uncle wrote as well as a conversation I had with poet Phil Woods about enjoying the later years.” “Two Long Days is about being separated from somebody but the two in this stories love is strong and instead of worrying about the lack of communication they simply simultaneously write letters to one another.” I’ll Try Harder Next Time is about letting things go. Simple. Learning that you can’t win them all is important.” And the first single “Dancing Alone is about being apart from your loved ones on important dates, it’s a duet with Oklahoma favorite, Carter Sampson.“
