CD Review: New Music From Seasoned Artists Seth Adam And Dave Hart Along With Daughter Emma

Connecticut native Seth Adam will be releasing his third studio album, "Steel Tempered Pride" on April 15th. This singer/songwriter seems to get better with each release. His last album "Amplify," received rave reviews along the indie circuit and his lyrics feel very true and heartfelt. The new ten-song album begins with the quick-strumming acoustic alt-country/folk  of "Old Broken Ladder," which feels like an outtake from the Grateful Dead's "American Beauty" album. Seth voice is so warm and welcoming that you feel yourself getting lost in his stories as in "Troubled Times" and "New York City Bound." He doesn't forget to plug in for the straight up rock of "Thank You, Chicago" and the bluesy sway of "These Pills." The album closes with the up-tempo rocker "People Are Only Going To Break Your Heart" and the sixties pop feel of "Tired."

Seth Adam and his band will be heading out on an Northeast tour with stops in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Connecticut. To find out more about Seth and his new album "Steel Tempered Pride," please visit

The father/daughter duo of Dave & Emma Hart will be releasing their debut album "Hold On" on April 29th through Outoftown Records. Dave Hart has been a part of the music industry for over 25 years as a composer for television commercials and documentaries. Emma had her first violin recital at age 5 and never looked back. Emma studied violin under the jazz great Sara Caswell and discovered her voice singing on the demo of the title-song "Hold On." The six-song album begins with the bluegrass feel of "A Shadow Behind" as the wonderful music just surrounds you. Emma's voice is so innocent and fresh that you would never guess this was her first album. The musicianship on this album is outstanding as Dave allows his daughter's talents to breathe on the instrumental "Little Emma" and in the David Grisman cover "Opus 57." Dave Hart lays his feelings out there on the loving lyrics of "Remember Me."
