Adam Burrows / Press

“I'd go so far as to say he holds his own against any of the best contemporary folk troubadors you might mention. ”

“Adam Burrows is one of the best lyricists in this town, which is saying a lot in Music City, USA. I have lost count of the number of times I have featured him on my radio show and I’m itching to spin more of his records. He has played our showcases and left audience members and fellow musicians alike in awe. This guy is the real deal.”

Wells Adams - Lighning 100, Nashville's Independent Radio

“Adam Burrows has a great folk song in Just Another Adam, and stands out amongst the throng of folksy singer-songwriters calling Nashville home with a lyrical bent and poetic wit that, in my opinion, rivals the very best.”

““It’s cliche and over-written when a new songwriter is hailed as the new Dylan, but then you’re the best thing I might have heard since an early Springsteen, you have much to live up to, at least in my head.””

Mojo LenSkunk - Magazine Volume 8, Issue 2, pg 98

““Adam Burrows’ vocal inflections, lyrics, and instrumental orchestrations remind me of Paul Simon’s masterpiece, ‘Hearts and Bones.’””

““In Burrows’ music, however, you will find the genre in good form, offering you a narrative, a purpose, and also a melancholy that, while palpable, seems to emanate from a place that you can’t quite pinpoint. What you’ll also find in his songs is a thoughtfulness and an attention to structure that separates his turn of phrase from the many singer/songwriters who, while they may have the vocal chops, lack the same sense of metaphor; by comparison, these lesser lyricists leave you with the impression that you’ve heard something of little more substance than a loosely worded journal entry.””

““From start to finish Tall Tales from Adam Burrows is a world class musical presentation. It’s one of the best earthy catalogues I’ve heard in a while. The music is very consistent, well-crafted and extremely entertaining. Note for note, song for song there isn’t really weak piece on this entire catalogue.””

“The sound of Nashville singer/songwriter/guitarist Adam Burrows reminds me of the jangly, easily funky vibe of an eclectic summer folk festival. Never One For Silence boasts seven unpretentiously cool songs rich with lyrical images and clean, crisp musicianship.”

“a pleasing conversational style on this EP of hopeful songs; the kind of guy you’d like to have a beer with before he gets up on stage in some small coffeehouse." ”
