Singer/songwriter Seth Adam writes compelling, genuine songs with honest lyrics. The alt-country, rootsy rocker draws comparisons to Counting Crows, Tom Petty, and Son Volt.
His latest studio release, Steel Tempered Pride, delves further into folk, Americana, alt-country, and psychedelic explorations than previous efforts. Not one to rely on trends of popular music, this self described “scrapper” takes a page out of the Lucinda Williams instruction book by performing frequently and writing deeply personal, heartfelt rock & roll songs.
The new record, Steel Tempered Pride, was released on September 24, 2013 and features production credits by David Immerglück, Counting Crows, Camper Van Beethoven) on two tracks - ‘Push And Pull’ and ‘Old Broken Ladder’ (Immerglück also played bass on these tunes). The record also features bass performances by The Alternate Routes’ guitarist, Eric Donnelly (‘New York City Bound’, ‘Troubled Times’) and drum performances by “Ramblin” Rob Heath (Justin Townes Earle, The Madison Square Gardeners) on ‘Old Broken Ladder’ and ‘Push and Pull’. Electric guitars and harmony vocals from Gerry Giaimo, mandolin and harmony vocals and Steve Tobey round out the rest of the tracks on Steel Tempered Pride. We caught up with Seth from his home in New Haven to chat about his all American roots.
