Album Review: "If Jason Isbell and Ray Lamontagne had a singer-songwriter love child, it might very well be Anthony Adams. His soul-baring vocals are surpassed only by the quality of his writing. From the simplicity of Moon, to the hard swing of Honey, and the narrative in Willie McGee and Soldier's Lament, you can't help but think you are listening to the first of many albums to come. While Anthony's talent alone could carry the record, The Nite Owls provide the perfect backdrop, offering a unique mix of cello, violin, harmonica/sax, slide guitar and bass, and Jenn Palmer Harrison's sparing, but perfectly placed backup vocals. You won't regret buying this one."
Show Review: "Anthony and his crew would not disappoint, kicking out the blues inspired alt country jams that kicked the crowd up another notch. Incorporating some slide guitar, and Anthony’s perfectly smoked and growling vocal, the songs were packed with the new Nashville sounds (see Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Sturgill Simpson) that this writer is growing to love more and more by the day. All the original work they performed from his self-titled debut record was on point, and when they broke into a cover of Bob Dylan and The Band’s Last Waltz classic “I Shall Be Released,” the chills came in waves. They even mixed in some reggae vibes at times, touching a lot of bases in their tour de force performance.

Sophomore Album "Are We Livin" Review
"It is increasingly rare for an entire album to achieve classic status upon release in these days of streaming and ala carte music, but this album does. Albums in the 60's and 70's usually had a theme which tied all the songs together, and the songs all had a similar style. At the risk of sounding like "in my day, everything was better," the lyrics and melodies on what are now classic albums were works of craftsmanship, not formulaic or derivative. "Are We Livin" sounds like it was crafted from start to finish, and the engineering on the album is superb. It has that rare quality of getting to the end and wanting to immediately go back for second listen. I have seen Anthony Adams and the Nite Owls on stage, and this album does something else which is exceedingly rare these days: it feels like you're listening to a concert, not a controlled, perfected studio performance where everyone knows they can redo anything which isn't just right. No matter how they recorded it, it *feels* live. It has all the energy and passion you get when true performers are in front of an audience. I was wishing it was actually a live recording because I could tell there are some parts where these gifted musicians could create some Allman Brothers-type 5 minute long rifts which make you go "oh wow!" It makes me want to go to see them for a chance to hear them unconfined by the cost of studio time. Finally, the songs are individually and collectively outstanding craftsmanship. Anthony's voice carries each song perfectly, giving them soul and color and feeling. The Nite Owls are clearly superb musicians who are masters of their craft. The bluesy, soulful feel of the album reminds me of the greats of that genre. "Are We Livin" evoked memories of Jackson Browne's early albums for me. It's not that it sounds like them, but that I like this album for the same reason I liked Jackson Browne before he sold out to pop music. The songs are that good, and like Browne's songs, they make you *feel*. This sophomore album shows that they are fine songwriters as well as musicians, and it is their calling card to open doors to bigger things ahead."
