‘Far Away Blues’ is the third studio album from San Marcos, TX. based singer/songwriter Adam Carroll and his debut for Blue Corn Music. ‘Far Away Blues’ showcases the idiosyncratic songwriting style that has endeared Adam to both younger and older Texas music fans and has prompted critics to compare Carroll with John Prine, Butch Hancock, Townes Van Zandt, Todd Snider and Bob Dylan.
‘Far Away Blues’ is once again produced by the legendary Lloyd Maines(Dixie Chicks, Pat Green, Joe Ely), and retains the intimacy of Carroll’s previous albums while filling the sound out significantly. The songs on ‘Far Away Blues’ are Carroll’s strongest to date and deal primarily with the concepts of community and family. Adam’s grandfather, Ray Davidson, contributes to the family vibe by adding his saxophone to the mix.
Texas songwriting legend Ray Wylie Hubbard lends his pen and voice to the cause by co-writing ‘Last Day of Grace’ and duetting with Adam on the song. ‘Far Away Blues’ represents a huge leap forward for Carroll, who has spent the last five years on the road building a large and loyal fan base. He will be touring nationally to support the album.
