A Texas Songwriter born and raised in Tyler, Texas. Adam Carroll takes the events of ordinary lives and turns them into deeply moving, often humorous songs. His roots unearth through giants like Butch Hancock, John Prine, and the late great Townes Van Zandt.
With seven Indie CDs supporting regular tours across the USA, Canada and Europe as “one of the hippest songwriters on the Texas music landscape”, this engaging Americana guitar-picker has earned further critical acclaim with song placements in the Grammy nominated film, Country Strong and others.
From his studio records produced by Grammy Award winner Lloyd Maines (South of Town, Lookin’ Out the Screen Door, Live at Cheatham Street, Far Away Blues) through to his latest releases (Old Town Rock N Roll, Hard Times with Michael O’Connor, Live at Flipnotics), the quality of his songwriting stands out.
Given a rare command of the English language and an amazing sense of melody, it’s little surprise Adam has earned enviable comparisons to Townes Van Zandt, Todd Snider, John Prine and Bob Dylan as well as being recognized as a creative influence on his songwriter peers.
Adam Carroll’s song credits include co-writes and CD or Film covers by Slaid Cleaves (Race Car Joe, Hard to Believe), Hayes Carll (Take Me Away, featured in the film Country Strong) and Band of Heathens (Medicine Man, Maple Tears).
“Among singer-songwriters, Adam Carroll is probably Austin’s best-kept secret. His tunes are marvels of economy; .. constantly inventive and decidedly offbeat .. Live at Flipnotics offers a typically low-key yet inviting overview of his career. With (Producer) Scrappy Jud Newcomb on guitar, he sparkles .. ” Jim Caligiuri, Austin Chronicle
His albums are compelling sketches of down-home people and places. He released his debut, South of Town, in 1999, following that with Lookin’ out the Screen Door. Both were produced by ubiquitous Texan Lloyd Maines. He has opened for artists such as Charlie Robison, Lucinda Williams, and Terry Allen. Carroll has noted how Allen’s near-legendary Lubbock on Everything album left an indelible stamp early on.
