Vinyl reissue of the debut album from Adeem the Artist from 2021.
A seventh-generation Carolinian, a makeshift poet, singer-songwriter, storyteller, and blue-collar Artist, Adeem has built a following by blending Appalachian musical influences and poetic flair with a healthy dose of comedic instinct.
Blending a homegrown affection for Country Music with the emotional ballyhoo of alternative folk in the early aughts, they have created a unique brand of Americana that pays homage to John Prine and John Darnielle in equal parts. Described by Brandi Carlile as “one of the best writers in roots music”, their twang-studded gospel represents a worldview too often excluded from modern country music, one that converts shame into celebration.
Cast-Iron Pansexual earned praise from Rolling Stone and American Songwriter for its examination of faith, sexual identity, and self-acceptance. They released its follow up, White Trash Revelry, to widespread critical acclaim and ended up on countless ones to watch lists at the beginning of 2023.
