This week In Session welcomed the enthralling musician and acclaimed short-filmmaker Adam Stafford into the studio to sing us a few songs and tell us a few tales the night after it was announced that he would be releasing his next album on Edinburgh label Song, by Toad Records in 2013. Former singer-songwriter of Y’all Is Fantasy Island and founder of DIY label Wise Blood Industries, Adam Stafford has been ubiquitous as a solo artist on the Scottish music scene for the last
3 years; delivering memorable performances on stage with the aid of his looper that blur the line between theatrics and religious experience. Adam has been admired by the show for some time so it was a great pleasure to welcome him to the studio to talk about his musical processes, film-making and witness some exclusives from the much anticipated upcoming album, Imaginary Walls Collapse. Were it not for amp problems, we’d have been treated to an additional performance of Vanishing Tracks that was released as a split single with Rick Redbeard (The Phantom Band) which is available here. In its place is a song request from Adam, the bizarre Life In A Scotch Sitting Room by Ivor Cutler.
Adam Stafford’s music can be found here.
