ADRIAN + MEREDITH
Adrian+Meredith have spent the last seven years with 150+ dates a year touring the USA, and since 2018, also in Poland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and UK. Their music embodies the spirit of the human story with a nod to punk, the heart of folk, flavor of Polka, and bounce of swing, “turn[ing] out a style that might be what alt-country would be like today if it had been born in Green Bay instead of St. Louis....sassy horns and Meredith’s fiddle in gypsy-mode to comment on how truth and integrity have become quaint ideas in America (Twangville Music)” Their debut record, More Than a Little (2016) was produced and guested by Mark Robertson, JD Wilkes (Legendary Shackshakers), Fats Kaplin (Jack White), Paul Niehaus (Calexico, Justin Townes Earle, Iron & Wine), selling 2500+ copies out the back of their 1994 carpeted Chevy Van, named “Martha.”
Their 2021 follow-up, Bad For Business, included the same cast from the last album and continued their “elements of klezmer, power pop, ska, New Orleans swing and a touch of blues rock just for good measure…with enthusiasm and oodles of charm…includes romantic joys and dramas, the vagaries of getting old and the theft of a keishka. Have fun with this one! (Paste Magazine)"
