The narratives — or what he calls “talking-songs” — of Adam Gnade (pronounced “guh-nah-dee”) result from his urge to record life in the us. Sketching from early music, aged American speaking blues, and protest ballads from your 1930s, Gnade is usually associated with his music group the Confederate Yankees: Thaddeus Christian (acoustic guitar), Shiloh Halsey (bass), Johnny Askew (body organ), and Brian Smith (drums). Following a few self-released experimental recordings, he released his 1st official album, Work Cover Retreat Surrender, on Loud + Crystal clear in 2005. In the next year he released the limited-run WE HAVE BEEN Bones and Spirits Down Rock Walled Wells. Gnade authorized on with U.K. label Drowned in Audio, which released the EP Shout the Rafters Down! in November 2006. Gnade’s 1st book, which proceeds the tales from his information, arrived that winter season, while a cooperation with British clothing Youthmovies led to the Honey Slides EP the next fall.
