“Every once in awhile a record comes along that just quietly grabs you by the heart and takes your breath away. For me, that record is Moving Forward. (…) This is definitely a contender for album of the year”.The Rock Doctor, Gonzo Okanagan
Adam Karch “Moving Forward” was recorded in 2016 at Tone Bender Studio in Montreal. Accompanied by bassist Marc-André Drouin, and drummer Bernard “Bingo” Deslauriers with recording engineer Olivier St-Pierre all under the watchful ear of René Moisan of Production Bros., the label that produces Adams CD’s. Harmonica player Guy Belanger also makes a guest appearance on some tracks.
Whether he is playing solo or accompanied by his trio made up of Marc-André Drouin (bass) and Bernard Delauriers (drums), Moving Forward dances between original compositions and inspired covers, such as Bob Seger’s Night Moves, Keb’ Mo’s City Boy, and even an exciting rendition of Werewolves of London by the late, great Warren Zevon. Adam even covers himself with a new take on an old favorite, adding a new groove to Did you Get The Latest News from his first album Crossroad Diaries (2002).Productions Bros
Adam Karch “Moving Forward”
“Moving Forward” marked the third CD project with Adam, who I have photographed several times, in the photo studio, on locations, in concert and in the recording studio. We recently got together to produce some images for a new bio-pic and promotional material.
“Adam Karch produces knockout roots music and acoustic blues from his hometown of Montreal, and his latest album, Moving Forward, is his best work yet. After listening to the whole disc, there is no doubt that Adam Karch can cut a mean record, but he is also a solid live performer”.Rex Bartholomew, Blues Blast Magazine, Los Angeles
