Adam Torres - I Came To Sing The Song

With last year’s album “Pearls To Swine”, singer-songwriter Adam Torres released a stunning collection of song Torres found an exponentially larger audience than ever before, and for good reason. It was his first album in 10 years and his first for Fat Possum Records, a deal that materialized after his cult favorite 2006 debut Nostra Nova was reissued by Misra Records. Torres, who is a gifted songwriter with a supernatural evocative falsetto vocal, Torres spent the time between albums in Austin honing his craft, developing an aesthetic as all-consuming as a gorgeously shot Western, his voice beaming brightly across a fiery barren landscape. The album realized all the stunning potential that had been hidden away for a decade.

Torres is back next month with I Came To Sing The Song, an EP of four songs recorded during the Pearls To Swine sessions. Or as Torres put it via email, “The idea behind the song and EP is finding purpose in one’s work, and having to adjust to the lightness and darkness of that search.” The title track is a gentle ballad featuring Torres’ peerless vocals backed by guitar and violin. Upon pressing play, your heart will be stirred.
