You are currently viewing SONGWRITING with ADAM KARCH



Adam Karch will discuss the approach of a blues song in his mind and what comes first, the lyrics or the music? He will also give examples of one or two of his originals and how they got to be what they are. The blend of the vocals and the music are very important, and he will touch on his take of trying to be an original singer/songwriter and sounding different. Also, there are a lot of variations Adam can come up with for the same song, so he will give examples and explain how he improvises once a song is finished and what he does to keep it fresh.


Adam Karch Bio

Although Adam Karch is from Montreal, his music embodies the spirit of Americana like a scenic ride across the country. He plays a hybrid acoustic blues that consists of precise fingerpicking that recalls players such as Chet Atkins and Kelly Joe Phelps, along with an innovative percussive technique that is thoroughly modern, while somehow primal and anchored in tradition.
