In a pensive medley of arpeggiated guitar chords and skittering beats, Adam French questions the relationships he has and what defines them. You From The Rest is an empowering mixture of whispers and echoes, culminating in one underlying question: ‘do I truly know you?’
Adam elaborates… “You From The Rest is a song I’ve wanted to write for quite a while. It’s about the emotional benefit of removing toxic people from your life, and starting to fully appreciate those who bring positivity, love and fulfilment to it... our time here is short, I think it’s always important to remember that.”
You From The Rest is lifted from Adam’s new EP of the same title, coming April 2018.
Self-taught multi-instrumentalist Adam French is a creator of songs, full of depth, honesty and a cinematic quality. New EP You From The Rest produced by Rich Cooper (Mystery Jets, Lucy Rose, Billie Marten, Tom Odell) is a beautiful, intimate collection of tracks… This follows on from Adam’s recent Weightless EP which was released at the end of 2017.
Songs and song-writing have always been a constant companion in Adam’s life. Growing up in Congleton in the North West (between Manchester & Stoke) Adam cut his teeth on the local gig circuit, before the opportunities of the capital lured him to London where he now lives.
Adam’s new EP artwork is once again a photo taken on film by the man himself… the well-kept orange tree is stood in his flat-cum-cluttered 24/7 demo recording studio and rehearsal space, taking pride of place next to the stacks of keyboards, guitars and various bits of recording equipment as it was when Adam first started working on these songs. The green-fingered maestro has nurtured rough ideas and disparate musical textures into rich pieces of art.
Adam is one of the most interesting singer-songwriters currently operating, and 2018 will see him touring throughout Europe and the UK. Having already supported and shared the bill with the likes of Jack Garratt, Jake Bugg and Rat Boy, Adam is currently on the road as support for Jacob Banks on his European tour, coming to London’s Kentish Town Forum on 28th March.
February saw Adam play sold out headline shows to crowds in Manchester and London, and with a new headline tour freshly announced, he’s not one to miss.
