Singer/songwriter Seth Adam writes compelling, genuine songs with honest lyrics. The alt-country, rootsy rocker draws comparisons to Counting Crows, Tom Petty, and Son Volt.
His latest studio release, "Steel Tempered Pride," delves further into folk, Americana, alt-country, and psychedelic explorations than previous efforts.
Not one to rely on trends of popular music, this self-described "scrapper" takes a page out of the Lucinda Williams instruction book by performing frequently and writing deeply personal, heartfelt rock & roll songs. He has shared the stage with Grammy-winning Steep Canyon Rangers, Grammy-winning Robert Cray, Tonic, Vertical Horizon, Carbon Leaf, The Alternate Routes, Will Hoge, Gary Louris (The Jayhawks), Ken and Drew from Sister Hazel, and Mayer Hawthorne, has had a song licensed to Volkswagen, and was described by entertainment columnist Roger Friedman as "the hardest-working best live act in indie rock."
The new record, “Steel Tempered Pride" was released on September 24, 2013 and features production credits by David Immergluck (Counting Crows, Camper Van Beethoven) on two tracks - 'Push And Pull' and 'Old Broken Ladder' (Immergluck also played bass on these tunes). The record also features bass performances by The Alternate Routes guitarist, Eric Donnelly ('New York City Bound', 'Troubled Times') and drum performances by "Rambiin'" Rob Heath (Justin Townes Earle, The Madison Square Gardeners) on 'Old Broken Ladder' and 'Push And Pull'. Electric guitars and harmony vocals from Gerry Giaimo, mandolin and harmony vocals from John Jackson, drums from Dennis DeMorro and Steve Tobey round out the rest of the tracks on “Steel Tempered Pride”.
