By Jamie Anderson

Adam's from Nashville, but donít expect a weepy fiddle or earnest lyrics about trucks and honky tonks. Heís a got a pleasing conversational style on this EP of hopeful songs; the kind of guy youíd like to have a beer with before he gets up on stage in some small coffeehouse. Thereís a little John Prine in his storytelling and an honest voice like a less-bitter Steve Earle. His promo material compares him to Patty Griffin, but he doesn't have her mastery of metaphor. He's young, though, so we can hope he'll head in that direction.

There are some great images in his songs, strung together with a solid band featuring his vocals and acoustic guitar plus others on bass, percussion, Dobro, mandolin and more. He does play with words, though, like a country writer, like the title (and reoccurring line in) "Had to Get Lost to Find My Way." "Prison Break" is about breaking through our patterns, not about guys in striped clothes. Iím not sure I know what "House Thatís Not Right in the Head" is about, but I like the Spanish percussion and guitar accents with an accordion that fills it all in nicely. Standout cut is the last one, "Right As Rain," a sparse arrangement that features some pretty finger picked guitar and a bowed bass. I wish there were lyrics on his website or on the disc because I missed some of the words. I might have to go back for another listen. Maybe you will too.
