It is an inspiring experience to listen to Adam Levy’s soulful and musical playing and it is as inspiring to talk to him. I first found out about Adam’s work a couple of years ago when I listened to „Come away with me“ by Norah Jones, asking myself who played this beautiful guitar solo.
From there I started exploring more music that Adam recorded. I strongly recommend listening to Chely Wright’s album „I am the rain“ and the album „Blueberry Blonde“ that he recorded with Jay Bellerose. (I apologise for the poor audio quality. Unfortunately, the coffee shop was noisier than expected that day.)
