Re: “Jason Adamo's Sunflower

I dont have a dog in this fight because I have not been too impressed with the Indy OR Jason Adamo. My opinion of Jason Adamo is that he would sound better if he werent always trying to be overly soulful. His singing tends to sound forced. One must realize that true soul is singing with conviction. Punk rock can have soul and bluegrass can even have soul. A white boy trying to sound black is not soul. Soul is honesty and his vocals do not have that. The lyrics on this album are defiantly lack luster also. I see that Jason has a lot of potential as an artist, but until he digs deep and finds the real definition of soul, he will stay what he is, a guy thats pretty good but doesnt have it. I hope he takes this revue to heart and realizes that he may not be the artist that he seems to have built himself to be in his own mind. In his defense, he is one of the hardest working artists on the Raleigh Scene. This guy is an example of how artists need to be, but he is a bit lacking in creativity and originality, but that can be worked on. As for the Indy, this publication is not a realistic outlook on the Raleigh scene. It is a non-major citys little music club of elitists ranting about what they like and what THEY hate. And THEY seem to have a bias towards Americana and Indy rock, and by the way, can somebody tell me what Indy rock really is anyway? Its like this label that everyone is jumping on when they should just call themselves rock. Actually, I think it means rock with thick-rimmed glasses! Remember alternative? That was too funny! Down with fake, whether in the form of a singer faking soul, or a publication being phony about representing the triangle. I think my town can do better.
