Adam Faucett and The Tall Grass


Hailing from Little Rock, Adam Faucett has drawn comparisons from Tim Buckley to Cat Power to Otis Redding. Called "one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer." (Arkansas Times) Faucett?s music is described as "part folk, part blues, part elemental rock stomp, part unidentifiable cosmic holler" (Arkansas Democrat Gazette). Playing with him will be The Tall Grass, which includes Jonny D on bass and Will Boyd on drums. Faucett began performing solo in 2006 and now tours nationally and internationally. He has performed with Jason Isbell, Damien Jurado, Chuck Ragan and Lucero. For the past two years, Faucett has toured in support of his third acclaimed release, "More Like A Temple," which received praise from outlets including American Songwriter, Paste Magazine, No Depression and Uprooted Music Review. The album also gained overseas support, landing at No. 14 on the EuroAmericana chart and receiving five stars from Altcountry.NL, bringing him to Europe for the first time.
