Producing dark folk country, Adam Arcuragi may not have the twang or the name to accompany the music genre that some call “Death Gospel,” but he has the feeling and a powerful voice. This relaxed, “something sung around a bonfire”-style of music pleases all. You can imagine his influences, a young Adam letting the needle fall on The Stanley Brothers, The Cox Family, or a more current lullaby from Iron and Wine. Arcuragi’s music is the kind of fun, well-written, and simple listening that you hear at a bar, delaying that next sip to sing along with the inviting chorus of “She Comes to Me.”
And if he broke out into song in, let’s say, a flea market, you might stop, slap a knee, or grab the nearest tambourine and feel compelled to join the revelry.
