Twice awarded ‘UK Acoustic Artist of the Year’, Adrian Byron Burns is recognised for his fabulous voice and incredible acoustic guitar playing as well as the originality of his material.
Unlike many contemporary bluesmen, Adrian Byron Burns doesn’t pretend that 60-some-odd years of musical development hasn’t occurred since Robert Johnson went to San Antonio. Jazz, funk, fusion, soul, R&B, and even straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll influences are apparent in his hard driving urban blues. His guitar work is clean and percussive, marked by rapid-fire single-note picking, rhythmic string damping, and artificial harmonics. While he includes a number of worthwhile originals, his fresh, contemporary twist on a number of blues classics, including “Crossroads” and “Sitting on Top of the World,” make this debut album stand out.
