Brandon Lee Adams (from the album Time That I Was Leavin’ available on Tritium Music)
With words and music, Brandon Lee Adams offers a listen to the sound of life in Appalachia as his voice echoes through the mountains, hills, and valleys of the mountain range. Time That I Was Leavin’ is the latest release from Brandon Lee Adams, the title track answering the train whistle as he makes an exit with vocal gymnastics that match the whine of the locomotive. Sadness is his companion as Brandon Lee Adams walks the past in “Yesterday is Gone”, his path leading into an unknown future. Home town streets come into view when Time I Was Leavin’ turns a corner into the memories trailing through “30 Long Years” while Brandon Lee Adams picks up the pace to bid “Adios” and trudges slowly in the rising flames of troubled times down “Streets of Rome”.
Sawdust rises in slow swirls as “Fool That Never Learned” takes a spin around a honky tonk floor, Brandon Lee Adams becoming a homeless “Vagabond” with a bounce in his step as he reminisces on whispered finger-picking with “Those Were the Days” while Time That I Was Leavin’ shares “Lessons Learned” on rapid-fire banjo playing and puts asphalt under a rolling Bluegrass melody in “Leaving Carolina”.
