Prolific singer-songwriter Ryan Adams is on a musical journey driven by a restless muse. With a formidable catalog of music infused with honesty, wit and a deep regard for authentic storytelling, Adams’ eclectic tastes, encyclopedic knowledge and tireless thirst to create have resulted in 16 acclaimed albums, in addition to his many side-projects. From his humble punk rock roots to his role as frontman of the influential alternative country ensemble Whiskeytown to his innovative solo career, Adams is as comfortable and as adept at playing disarmingly poignant country ballads as he is ripping through a set of black metal bombast. His latest album, Prisoners, only further solidifies his reputation, delivering a moving rumination on heartbreak and healing, and receiving rapturous reviews for its intimacy, its rich well of musical influence and its cathartic emotional resonance.
