Artists: Adam Arcuragi & The Lupine Chorale S
About: One of today's fastest-rising alt-country troubadours, Adam Arcuragi, has been reeling in addicted fans on both sides of the Atlantic, with the music that some call "Death Gospel" .....although its not what you think.... Much like the geographic collision of being raised in both Georgia and Philadelphia, the music grabs parts and pieces from genres spanning folk, soul, country, Indie rock and even old blues field recordings. As a published playwright, Adam’s songs spill over with compelling and poignant lyrics that garner continuous praise, or as John Schacht of the All Music Guide states "There is unbridled joy inherent in even the saddest of these songs, and unforgettable images in almost every verse". Combined with the talents of The Lupine Chorale Society, a collective of multifarious and talented musicians & friends, the music erupts into a veritable tent revival of songs that you can't help but clap, stomp, or sing along to. The past year brought the release of Adam's last album I Am Become Joy, a month-long European tour, attention from NPR, Rolling Stone, and Paste Magazine, various TV / film placements, and a song placement in a nationally running commercial campaign. This summer, Adam and the band played over 40 shows and festivals across the US, and toured the Southeast in October, with These United States. The new album was recorded this fall in Lexington KY, with producer Duane Lundy.
