It his first UK tour since the release of last year’s full-length album, Pearls Before Swine, and the follow-up EP Came To Sing The Song, which came out in February.

Remeniscent of American folk-songwriters such as Bon Iver, Damien Jurado, Bonnie Prince Billy etc, Torres, from Austin, Texas, sings in a varied falsetto which lends an ethereal quality to his work.

He is performing at The Lamplight Club, held at Regather Trading Co-operative, Club Garden Road, Sharrow, on Saturday, August 19.

A club spokesman said: “We are very excited to welcome Adam. He is over in the UK for a Green Man festival show and we’ve been lucky enough to bag a date.!

“This is certainly not an opportunity you’ll get very often so take our recommendation and join us for a very special Lamplight Club.”

He will be accompanied by the players in his regular band, including percussionist, violinist Aisha Burns and Cheryl Pinero on bass.
