Adam Young

Having spent several years in successful indie rock acts such as the Daisygrinders and Big Heavy Stuff, Adam Young has had his songs covered by the likes of You Am I and The Lemonheads. This would be enough to make any musician retire happily.

But it his solo work with which Adam will truly leave his mark.

Elementary Carnival Blues features 10 tracks of real alternative country and we believe that it easily stands beside the best work from Wilco, the Jayhawks, Ryan Adams, Uncle Tupelo and other legends of the genre. But Adam hasn’t left his roots behind either. Imagine if Gram Parsons had fronted early REM or Steve Earle got together with Buffalo Tom. That’s the vibe that you get on this album.

Guests on Elementary Carnival Blues include a who's who of the Australian alt-country and alternative scenes, including Katie Brianna (who shares lead vocals on two tracks), Corinna Steel, Jeff Mercer (The Happening Thang), John Gauci (Leonardo's Bride) and ARIA Award nominees, Emma Swift and Jason Walker.

The third single from the album, Wolfe Island Blues, has just been released on 7" vinyl. See link below.
