Down at Joe's
Adlai Waxman's songs shine with a style that pushes the boundaries of piano pop music. Words like, "genuine, eclectic, unique, witty, sophisticated," have been used to describe this singer-songwriter's unique sound. Echoes of his influences surface, especially those to whom he has been compared, namely, Randy Newman, Joe Jackson, Robbie Robertson and Donald Fagen. Yet his vocal style remains distinct, with his own modern twist. Music industry legend Jerry Wexler personally called Adlai to offer career guidance and said, "You can fit in with the best of them." Well received by the music industry and fans, his songs climbed to number one on the CBC radio new music chart. Other contests such as the Mountain Stage New Song Contest (West Virginia) and the internet American Idol Underground voted Adlai's songs among the top ten out of thousands of world-wide entries. Dividing his time between Nashville and Toronto, Adlai earns his keep as a professional musician devoted to the craft of songwriting and performing. On this his first full length CD, Adlai's songs touch on many topics, always with a fresh musical approach. Marshmellow Records is proud to have Adlai on it's roster and we are sure you will fall in love with his unique musical perspective.
