Leaves Of Grass is Adam Snyder’s stunning follow-up single to Two Moons both taken from the debut album, Across The Pond (HTI).
Leaves of Grass is released on March 29th, but is also available to download, exclusively at www.adamsnyder.com and is completely free!
As with its predecessor Leaves Of Grass has been remixed by Marius De Vries (renowned for his work with U2, Bjork and Madonna amongst others) into a sublimely beautiful melodic dream complete with shimmering bass, pedal steel courtesy of BJ Cole and soulfully sweet backing vocals.
Originally a member of Mercury Rev side project, Harmony Rockets, Upstate New Yorker joined the Rev in the mid 90s at a time when the Deserter’s Songs album saw their popularity soar.
At the same time he continued to write his own songs and perform solo shows whenever he had the opportunity. Eventually in 2000 he realised that he had to take a leap and, leaving the Rev, struck out on his own full time.
Adam’s dbut album, Across The Pond, was recorded over a three-month period in London and encapsulates a lifetime of stories, thoughts, observations and snapshots. He performs the songs with an off-kilter sincerity that mirrors Jonathon Richman and, at times, Neil Young, while preserving his own unique style of delivery.
