LISTEN: Adam Barnes - 'Edison'

You'll likely long since have gathered that I'm partial to a bit of sad folk music. Adam Barnes is a purveyor of some particularly gorgeous but heartbreaking tunes, and as one of the first artists that I saw live when I started University in Oxford his music holds a special place for me. Having fallen in love with a session video of his a couple of years prior, seeing him play to a small pub crowd and chatting to him after back in 2014 was one of my first "wait, musicians are just like us!" moments.

I'm delighted to say that Adam is back, having just shared brand new track Edison, the first new music since he released his album Vacancy at NASA in early 2018. The track is the first of a few to be released this year - listen and enjoy, or cry, or both. I think that the brilliance of a sad folk song is probably measured by how much it makes you want to weep, right?


Now living in Berlin, Adam is heading back across to the UK for a London headline show later in the year. Grab tickets for the show at The Islington on 19th November here.
