“With an energetic and passionate vocal style, Holt speaks to the human condition with well-penned lyrics and the most celebrated guitar lines from the Southern rock songbook.”
“Kind of Blues holds satisfying echoes of blues alongside that deep southern-soul and southern country-rock feel, much beloved by many and perfected and primed by the late, great Gregg Allman.”
“Taken as a whole, Kind of Blues is easily one of the finest albums of 2019 so far and will no doubt make many Best of the Year lists.”
“The Allman's force is strong on Baldwin County blues-rocker’s track.”
Muddy Waters once said, “The blues had a baby, and they named the baby rock n’ roll.” Well if Muddy Waters and Tom Petty had a baby, they’d name the baby Adam Holt. And with an array of Gibson guitars, an old Ampex tape machine, and an unassuming group of musicians out of Mobile in his toolset, Alabama singer-songwriter Adam Holt’s latest studio album is a gutsy amalgamation of his deeply sown roots in the blues, classic country, and rock n’ roll of decades ago.
No stranger to the spotlight, Adam has toured the Southeast from Houston to Tallahassee to Chattanooga, playing everywhere from music festivals to dive bars, and sharing the stage with such southern rock icons as Lynyrd Skynyrd and Drivin’ n Cryin’, as well as blues legends Bob Margolin, Willie Big Eyes Smith, and Hubert Sumlin (from Muddy Waters’ and Howlin’ Wolf’s bands, respectively). From time to time, you may find the multi-instrumentalist lending his piano chops in either an up-tempo dueling piano bar or a more intimate lounge venue, pouring his heart out to fans of Lionel Richie, Chicago, and Elton John.
