Deeply Emotional Americana Folk Rock n' Roll from Charm City
Lyric-Driven Americana Folk Rock n' Roll
Some Charming Trespassers (LISTEN)
by Red Sammy & Some Charming Trespassers (String Ensemble)
“and carve the words ‘nothing here’ in the dark and the tangled trees / some quiet place to retreat / what I do to fill a need / a caribou in moon-starched sheets/will I ever feel complete?” – “Caribou”
True Believer is a collection of eight songs written by Adam Trice (Red Sammy) and accompanied by a highly-versed string ensemble (Some Charming Trespassers): Julia Wen (cello); Sarah Kennedy (violin); John Decker (resonator); Rebecca Edwards (backing vocals); Adam Trice (acoustic guitar, vocals). Song arrangements stripped down to the essentials allowing words and melody to take the lead. A sort of acceptance of one’s state in life and finding purpose in the human condition (birth, growth, emotionality, aspiration, conflict, and mortality) are strong lyrical themes on this album.
