Adam Carroll, a singer/songwriter from – you guessed it – Texas, views life at a slant and weaves vivid stories out of ordinary commonplace events, fleshing them out with real and imagined details. All but one of these songs can be found on his two earlier releases “Lookin’ Out the Screen Door” and “South of Town.”
Like his previous albums, the live album (Downhole Records) has a stripped down sound –downhome vocals and a guitar accented with some plaintive harmonica action and a little bit of Jew’s harp. Carroll has an eye for the whimsical and his understated sense of humor is inserted into each song. His stories are full of hillbillies and city slickers, waitresses and race car drivers, snow cone men, whiskey throats, and trailer parks.
