Johnny Adams - Corner of Pitt and Franklin

Johnny Adams - Corner of Pitt and Franklin
Johnny Adams, iconic South Australian folk singer and voice of the Adelaide streets has joined the Green South Records family and we couldn’t be happier.

Poignant, direct, unfettered story telling, hard times, good times, sad and crazy. The quality of the songwriting on Johnny’s two albums, Be a Lazy Dog and Burning, are undeniable.

The story is King. There’s no getting caught up between a haze of metaphors and a favourite literary giant from the past. These are the songs that tell you about his life and his experiences in a plain and honest way.

The recordings themselves are rough and don’t have the spit and polish of a recording studio.

The quality of the recording was outweighed by his need to record and get his music. And coin would have come into it as well. At the time of writing these songs, Johnny was doing it tough; he spent time living in his car and just didn’t have the means to get into a studio and record.

There’s a swing and swagger in the jangling acoustic guitar that underpins the journeys and experiences of his home town, travels through dank European streets and stories of mutiny.

About this track...

A day in the life of a bloke doing it tough - living moment to moment, busking in the mall, sitting on his sleeping bag. Writing poetry and observing life, getting by as best he can.
