The Singing Adams

Steve Adams

Steve Adams of 'The Singing Adams'

Great show tonight at The Kings Head pub in Crouch End.
Steve Adams was the main songwriter and lead singer of the much-loved Broken Family Band. That band split up last year, and now Steve has a new project called The Singing Adams. It was their first show as a full band tonight, and they’re sounding great. A little rough around the edges maybe (quite a few fluffed intros etc), but when the songs get going they really sound brilliant.

The Singing Adams were the support act. The headliner was Dan Michaelson & The Coastguards (or Dan Mickelberg and the Horse Guards, as Steve Adams jokingly introduced them).
A really gorgeous set by this band. Dan’s deep dark vocals play against a swinging country-infused backing, instantly raising comparisons with Bill Callahan, which is never a bad thing.
After a few songs the band was joined by Romeo Stodart from The Magic Numbers who played guitar on a few songs. Slightly incongruous, but kind of nice to see a well-known figure giving support.

There’s some rumours that Steve and Dan will be touring together this year, and some very strong rumours that at least one of those bands will be playing a show in Brighton very soon….. Shhh
