CL Critic Hal Horowtiz Recommends: Singer/songwriter Klein moved from Athens to Atlanta just in time to release his new and best album Holidays in United States. It's a socio-political set recorded during the pandemic and featuring a few members of the Drive-By Truckers and Futurebirds as his backing band. Klein's voice and moving folk rock is influenced by Paul Simon, although Klein expands some of his songs, like the gospel infused "I-20, " to over seven minutes. He's no newbie on the scene, having released his debut back in 2006. The years of experience show in his new, beautifully conceived album. - HH
From the venue:
Oh I"ve known the power and her lonesome whistle's glory / our story's yet to unfold / Delicate flower bending and broken and bowed / in need of tending, in need of sunlight / of water from a cool mountain stream / of a new American dream
With these poetic, longing words, singer/songwriter Adam Klein offers a hymn to the promise of America and closes out his powerful new record, Holidays in United States, out April 7, 2023 on Klein's Cowboy Angel Music.
