A View From The Plain
by Paul Adams
Remarkable, smooth guitar with an unusual sense of orchestration and style that swings with a sense of romantic mysticism quite unique to any particular genre. An artistic, creative, passionate gem.
Paul says, "This album tips a hat to the Prairie. Although these pieces are primarily acoustic, synthesizers were used creating a slight pallet of ambience, especially in covering the Pachebel Canon (Cowboy style). The intended result is an 'elfish' and romantic amalgam of styles offering a nod of thanks to Kottke and Grisman as well as Vangelis (done in a corn-fed sort of way).

Paul Adams spent his formative years building musical instruments for such luminaries as Daryl Hall, members of Stevie Wonder, The Pointer Sisters and others.
From Mountain Dulcimers, guitars, and Swedish Humels to composing music that Electronic Musicians magazine calls "surprisingly varied, very sophisticated and gorgeous!" Adams continues to prove that there are no boundaries in the creative realm! The San Jose, California Metro called Adams "...one of the most important New Age personalities since George Winston". Musical Starstreams, the largest syndicated instrumental radio show in America, called his first album, Various Waves, "The sleeper album of the year!" Tower Records Pulse magazine called Wonder Dancing On Global Bop "... a heady blend of world fusion, willfully eclectic...held together with scintillating fretwork!" A View From The Plain is a most unique acoustic guitar album that reached Top Ten status in Canada. Adams' following albums, In The Land Where I Come From and The Property Of Water, have continued to chart a unique musical course that is catching and risk taking. His music covers many genres and styles. Expect a beautiful surprise, and a wonderful journey!!
