Montreal native, Adam Karch discovered the guitar at age 12, an instrument that would become his best friend and musical partner. By age 14, he was performing at various festivals and bars.
His immense talent was noted by the famous guitar player and singer, Walter Rossi who would produce Adam’s first album “Crossroad Diaries” for Justin Time Records. Soon after, Adam began performing solo guitar shows, where his soulful voice was highlighted, as well as his spirited guitar stylings. In the early days his voice was often compared to Colin James and Brian Setzer, but more recently, he has developed a range that is reminiscent of such greats as Van Morrison and James Taylor.
His new album, “Cotton Fields”, will be released in June on Bros Records. This recording revisits blues hits throughout the ages (from the 1930’s to present day) and offers five new original songs. The album explores the roots of the blues while offering a hommage to the long walk to freedom taken by so many African-Americans, as well as a dedication to Harriet Tubman, a visionary heroine who worked with the Canadian Underground Railroad in an effort to abolish slavery.
“The Palmer Fab 5 is my go to amp for live and studio gigs. It’s German made so you can’t go wrong. I pair it up with a custom 2x12 cab with Vintage 30’s and BOOM my rig becomes a full scale sound for the road under any situation. Palmer rocks and the tone is something I’ve been after for a while, now I have it!”
