December Art Hop: Adam Labeaux
December 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
ADAM LABEAUX comes to Arcadia from Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Adam Labeaux has been performing professionally for 25 years. A founding member of Ann Arbor’s own the Ragbirds with roots deeply embedded in the Michigan music scene, Adam tours throughout Michigan and the surrounding states performing “Improvisational Folk-Rock, and Soul”. In 2016 alone he has racked up over 100 shows, including the Ann Arbor Summer fest, Campus Martius summer series, and the Detroit Winter Blast. Live, Adam often performs solo with a looper and harmonizer, allowing him to be a “one-man band”.
Adam’s music, once aptly dubbed “Heartland Soul” by a fan, draws from a wide array of interests and influences. At any time you may find the juxtaposition of folk, soul, country, funk, jazz, and rock. Listening to his songs, that touch on the topics of love, loss, sexuality, longing, and hope, you will find yourself in a comfortable pocket like the one belonging to your wallet in your favorite pair of jeans.
Adam has released three full-length CDs, and has appeared as a guest on several others. His first CD release “Food for Thought”, with the jazz-rock quintet Perplex, was hailed as “Easily one of the most repeatedly enjoyable listening experiences one is ever bound to encounter.” by the Bay Area Review Magazine.
