ADAM TORRES – ” Folkadelphia Session “

I would follow Adam Torres’ voice to the ends of the earth I am so looking forward to seeing him at some UK festivals this summer. There is a magical, slinking, serpentine quality to his falsetto vocal and the interplay between it and his music that, as a listener, I’m trying to figure out why it is so utterly affecting. After years without a proper full length album release, Torres released “Pearls to Swine” last year, a proper follow-up album that makes good on the promise he exhibited on the 2006 indie cult classic Nostra Nova. On “Pearls” and this year’s EP I Came to Sing the Song, that songwriting spellwork is as potent and refined as ever, in a quietly rousing way like the warm, bright morning light on the sleepy world.

Torres sang three of his recent songs for us at the WXPN Studio and, stripped of auxiliary instrumentation and band members, the performance was just as affecting.
