DANNY ADAMS From Three Compasses

Weymouth troubadour, broadcaster and songwriter DANNY ADAMS often delivers retro-rocket rock, with post-grunge English edges, always rich in melodies and crafted with a strong sense of artistic achievement.

He now he releases a new livesong EP “Live at the Three Compasses” ( performed recently at a village pub near Dorchester, Dorset, a venue that hosts the “Raising Spirit” festival.)

Three Compasses

Blood Letters” brings a swirl of boiling-pot sounds that cater to a hauntingly beautiful deep voice. The song dances to an evolving rhythm supported by bowls of bass-notes. Exceptional!

New song, “I Know Your Eyes” has a blithe countersway with a lot of melodious, punchy guitar and an incredible oyster shell ‘n’ putty voice. This is warm and invigorating.

The Superheroes” taken from his 2020 album “Soul Horizons” gripes like a bear with his tail caught in a trap. It’s a number that is cave-dark in aspect, though not sinister. While “Upside Down” from the same album brings extended musical horizons and packs-in some stained textures, and rusty-toned intonation. This is filled with resourcefulness!

Heartbreaking and introspective at times, this is classic grunge re-interpreted with a country atmosphere. Danny is a great guitarist and brings natural flexibility, springy virtuosity, and irrepressible euphoria to each of these songs. And with a voice of scrub stone… you will feel you’re never far from bewhiskered jowlization!
