“a prodigiously talented fingerpicking guitarist”……(R2 Magazine)

“a superior fingerstyle troubadour”……”mesmerising chops.” (Guitar and Bass Magazine)

“the amount of different sounds he gets from the guitar is amazing and hard to believe there is only one man on stage”…..”a truly charismatic artist, a soulful vocalist, exquisite guitarist and his lyrics are full of depth and emotion.”……..”an emotion packed stunning live album.” (Rock Society Magazine)

“wonderfully evocative acoustic guitar”  (Blues Matters)

Live at Crossroads ….. gives hope to a world out of sync with its self”……..”what comes across throughout each song is a man in harmony, not just with his music but also with the audience; he is allowing them to breathe and for a brief while think rather than react, contemplate rather than counter.”……..”a remarkably captured live performance from a master of the craft.”  (Liverpool Sound and Vision)

More reviews…..

Adrian’s new album “Live at Crossroads” is generating substantial interest in it’s first few days of release. Some highlights so far…

“a quite frankly outstanding rendition of ‘Vincent Black Lightning’. Should you decide to cover a Richard Thompson song you’d better know what you’re doing, not only that, you have to give the song something dramatic to avoid negative comparison. And should you acomplish that, choosing Vincent Black Lightning would be a bold choice. No worries here, Adrian hits it with guitar and vocals. If anyone is going to give ‘the master’ a run for his money on any of his songs this one gets my vote.”

‘Brightest Star’ with its incredibly powerful lyrics – delivered by a voice that raises the emotion to a soul-wrenching level.”

“There’s the piercingly perceptive ‘The Dying of Democracy’ – a hard narrative, driven hard, telling its tale of rioting and violence in Athens: “Just a stone’s throw from its birthplace, I saw the dying of democracy.” Wicked lyrics.”

“his dazzling deft acoustic guitar fingerwork”  “nimble six string brilliance”

“shows why he really should be discovered by a wider and international audience, notably so on the politically pointed The Dying of Democracy with its echoes of Bruce Cockburn”

 

 

“achingly observant lyrics delivered across lingering memorable melodies”

First responders….

With the first batch of “Live at Crossroads” pre-orders going out this week, here are some of the initial reactions coming back. I believe these are now called ‘customer reviews’……

“…….cannot stop playing it – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! Super playing – in fact, mesmerising is the word which springs to mind!!!!”  (Mike Ainscoe)
“Got home to find the new CD from Adrian Nation had arrived. Usual routine out of the window, not TV, CD straight on to play. Would I be disappointed? Of course not! Adrian doing what he does best, performing on his own, live. Story teller, stunning guitarist, great voice, lovely bloke.”  (Tracey Palmer)
“Dear Adrian, Thanks for the CDs arrived this morning and I’ve had a wonderful morning relaxing to the superb sound quality and beautiful songs…….I continue to search Tyneside for someone of your caliber”  (Mike Swindale)
“Live at Crossroads…could be described as the accidental genius he truly is.”  (Molly)
