Henry Jamison / Charli Adams
At a time when the magnitude of cultural sickness is coming to light, Henry Jamison has had some time to reflect. On his second record, Gloria Duplex, the Vermont songwriter deconstructs ideas of masculinity from boyhood to adulthood and what it means to be a white, middle-class male in the United States.
Recorded over a two-week period in New York City in January 2018, Gloria Duplex features an all-star cast, including producer Thomas Bartlett (Sufjan Stevens, the National, St. Vincent,) string arranger Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Arcade Fire, Phoebe Bridgers,) and mixer Patrick Dillett (Rhye, David Byrne, Glen Hansard).
At a time when the magnitude of cultural sickness is coming to light, Henry Jamison has had some time to reflect. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, singer-songwriter Charli Adams pairs her dreamy, haunting voice with raw and ruminative lyrics, creating a distinct sound. Originally from southern Alabama, Adams’s songwriting combines her sweet, slow-paced roots with the fresh, electric joy and pain that youth provides. Her music serves as a nod to the old and the new, drawing from the sounds of timeless classic rock artists such as Tom Petty, Neil Young, and Elliott Smith, as well as current indie powerhouses such as Ryan Adams, the 1975, and the Paper Kites.
