A former member of dearly departed local band The Glad Version, Adam Svec has been warmly received since he debuted as a solo artist in 2008. Svec is a prolific songwriter, having come out with three albums in as many years.
Known for his lilting tenor and simple but compelling folk arrangements, Svec is influenced by his studies in audiology and his personal experiences, which consciously and unconsciously influence his songwriting and instrumentation. His third album, Weaks in the Waves, comes out May 20.
Adam Svec stopped by the Local Show for a live performance. Songs performed: "Chariot Swinging Low and Mean," "Belfry" and "Forest for the Trees."
