What do you get when you mix Kansas City’s hottest blues guitarist, a gorgeous young female drummer and one of the best bassists in the Midwest?
The Adam Wyatt Electric Band.

At the age of 27, Adam’s virtuosic yet soulful guitar playing has earned him a loyal fan base of blues lovers and guitar freaks through out the Midwest. Even Adam’s guitar, “The Farmcaster“, built from pieces of his great great grandfathers pre civil war home has earned almost mythical status among Strato-holics.

Word of a young man who could make a guitar scream like Hendrix, Travis pick like Merle, and cry like Albert King didn’t take long to spread. What had started in small clubs was soon moved into Kansas City’s top music venues. The Adam Wyatt Electric Band was soon asked to open shows for such notables as Chris Duarte, Corey Stevens, Rocky Athas, and Eric Sardinas. The band has also appeared live on The Fox News Morning Show, as well as multiple appearances on The Kansas City Spotlight Sessions. Adam and the band was also hand selected by LA piano legend David Krull for a string of dates. “I’ve worked with Jeff Healey, Hubert Sumlin and Bonnie Raitt, so I know a little about guitarists, let me tell you this Wyatt kid is one of the best there is. What a pleasure to have on stage.) ~ David Krull

“5 Miles To Rolling Fork” Adam’s first album was released in early 2006 to great reviews and sales. A unique melding of songs about Delta life, and scorching guitar work combine into a enchanting world of murder, pain, hoodoo’s and redemption. Adam not only wrote 8 of the 9 songs on “Five Miles To Rolling Fork” (only the Tommy Bolin classic “Post Toastee” was covered) Adam played all the guitar, bass, dobro, lap steel and vocals along with producing and engineering the album.

In 2006, The Adam Wyatt Electric Band has already performed over 150 shows throughout the Mid West, including a main stage performance at the Kansas City Blues and Jazz Fest and the Stillwater Oklahoma Blues Fest.

Lyrics

Five Miles To Rolling Fork

Written By: Adam Wyatt

It's three in the morning / And I'm creeping down through the woods

It's three in the morning / And I'm creeping down through the woods

Sure as that moonshing down / I know you've been up to no good

I see your light shining / Shining through those Cyprus trees

I see your light shining / Shining through those Cyprus trees

I'm five miles from Rolling Fork / I'm gonna put you on your knees

I hear your screaming baby / Through them trees all night long

I hear your screaming baby / Through them trees all night long

I'm five miles from Rolling Fork / Your six feet down where you belong

Too Cold In Chicago

Written By: Adam Wyatt

It's too cold in Chicago / For me to stick around

It's too cold in Chicago / For me to stick around

Let's hop something smokin' / ride it to a warm delta town

Now come on with me baby / Don't you want to ride with me

Now come on with me baby/ Don't you want to ride with me

I guess If you won't go / I'll have those delta women send you back

Whats left of me

Same Old Blues

Written By: Adam Wyatt

I've never worked a cotton field / but I will tell you how I feel

A rich man broke my back / everything I make he takes it back

Everything here has changed / But everything here remains the same

It's just me and you / And the same old blues

I've got a woman with two last names / The first is trouble and the other is pain

She left me in the middle of the night / Another damn woman didn't do me right

Everything here has changed /But everything here remains the same

It's just me and you / And the same old blues

I've never been to no Crossroads / Never met the Devil or sold my soul

I've never road the midnight train / Never been a slave and wore shackles and chains

Everything here has changed / Everything here remains the same

It's just me and you / And the same old blues
