Adam Faucett
“Show Me Magic, Show Me Out”

In the imagination of the American winter, after the leaves are stripped from the trees and snow dulls the jagged edges of our immediate surroundings, our perception is sharpened. This is the domain of Adam Faucett.

Faucett's new album, “Show Me Magic, Show Me Out” is a diverse but singular collection of stories, confessions and pleas from a hilltop loner sung with austerity, immediacy and a bit of a smirk. There is aged wisdom in the sound of this music, and the dark, primitive mountain melancholy is lightly punctuated with moments of lush melody.

Faucett's longing is bright-eyed and apologetic, nearly a resignation to sadness. There are hymns of great loves that never were (the mournful and richly harmonious “Amy”) and of self-defeat (the morning-after abandon of “Look Out Below!!”). “Indian Giver” is a banjo ballad of criminal self-righteousness that would chill James Dickey's spine.

But it's the final song, an interpretation of the 1927 lynching of John Carter in downtown Little Rock, that stands out. Told as if first-hand, it's a recount replete with tightly packed metaphors that reduce pages of historical detail to one crisp, hair-raising whisper. To wit, of Carter's head on a pole at Broadway and 9th Street amid rioting Arkansans: “All Broadway on fire, kept alive by a single coal.” The song concludes with a jarring shout followed by a haunting congregational wail of baritone misery. Even the greatest American folk singers would be hard-pressed to leave such a vivid account of the horrific, shameful reality of one of the saddest chapters of American history.

Adam Faucett: Show Me Magic, Show Me Out

That voice… Arkansas’ Adam Faucett comes straight from the netherworld releasing his second album, Show Me Magic, Show Me Out, that somehow manages to upstage his brilliant debut. Here, Faucett again showcases what an unparallel fingerpicker he is in the folk music realm, but it all comes back to that voice. It’s unforgettable and his tales come from a place without time, pure emotion and introspection.

A true testiment to the ever evolving genre of southern soul. Adam Faucett has been writing and recording his original music since he was a boy growing up in a small town out side of Little Rock Arkansas. Faucett has been on the move for years. Moving from Arkansas to Chicago, leaving behind a more psychedelic rock past, Faucett began writing songs with in his means. Driven by failing eye sight, a completely new enviroment, a guitar and a vocal range unlike most, Adam set out for dives, living rooms, anywhere in Chicago that was in need of something different yet beautiful within a rolling lonesome bellow.

Leaving Chi cago in spring 2007 to record his first solo album "the Great Baskingshark" with long time friends back down south, Faucett united with Chad Condor and Jon Dodson to become the raw operatic band we see today. Since then Adam has been on tour around the country for the greater part of two years. Both solo and with the band, Faucett has shared the stage with acts such as The Legendary Shack Shakers, Lucero, and Calexico.

Adam Faucett is a rare songwriter's songwriter. The sound of honesty is fresh and inspiring when it is the told by someone who lives beneath the weight of truth and conviction. Adam continues writing and performing constantly. Along side his band, Faucett is currently working on their third full length record due out spring 2010.
