In Exhibitions of the Malcontent, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Burns combines live music and storytelling for a celebration of DIY music. It’s about cheap guitars, making posters, recording in your bedroom, finding your voice and turning it up. It’s a journey off the main street, down an alley, stepping over puddles and broken glass to a dimly-lit room with a microphone and two speakers hanging from the ceiling. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll want to start a band.
Adam draws on art rock, post-punk and new wave influences to create dynamic and melodic songs full of rich imagery and wry humor. His lyrics celebrate the strange and magical things that thrive beneath the surface of everyday life in a world where superheroes, witches and arsonists rub shoulders with bored housewives and small town hustlers. His dynamic and agile guitar playing beautifully compliments his gritty vocal style. Visit www.adamburnsmusic.net for more.
