Madness To Creation’s take: Peter Bradley Adams’ music grows on you the more you listen to it. With a smooth voice and spiritual/romantic lyrics with introspective arrangements, it is easy to see why he fits in like a glove with the NPR crowd and with the coffeeshop crowd. His music is easy to contemplate to and it allows for the listener to provide moments of reflection. I can see where he could fit into a country music crowd because in a few songs, there’s elements of violin and steel guitar arrangements in the music. It’s great music to listen to if you need to think or go on a roadtrip. Usually, I look for more of a rough edge in Americana folk music, but this is quality music. I rate Peter Bradley Adams a 7 out of 10 for the contemplative quiet nature in the music.
