If you’re walking down St-Denis on a Friday evening and you hear the soulful sounds of a one mans reckoning – you’ve found Adam Karch. Adam is a well known Montreal post-folk and blues singer songwriter whose presence at Bistro à Jojo has become synonymous with good times and fantastic music.
Adam Karch’s debut album, Cotton Fields, is a mix of downhome blues, and country that has been feature on numerous radio stations including CHOM 977′s Black Cat Ally (a large feat for aspiring Montreal blues musicians).
This past Friday’s performances started with the song “Frankie & Albert” a tune that showcases his guitar skills and blues influences. Adam performs solo but with his strong vocals, finger picking guitar style and boot stomping percussive’s you’d swear he had a band playing with him.
As a frequenter of his shows I love hearing new songs he’s been working on. One in particular, “Flower” (watch video here) by Amos Lee really got to me because of its John Mayer style.
You can catch Adam every Friday night at Bistro à Jojo from 5pm-9pm – bring some extra cash because his pay depends on your generosity -music this good deserves a helping hand!
He is also playing a show on November 24th at the Calistoga Grill starting at 7pm.
