My guest this week is studio guitarist Adam Levy. Adam is a killer guitar player with an impressive history of live and studio work. A member of Norah Jones' band for years, Adam got his start playing around San Francisco and LA, eventually landing a gig with Tracy Chapman. Adam is tactful and tasteful in his guitar playing, never stepping into a solo spotlight without something meaningful to add to a song. Understated but memorable, Adam’s solos draw on elements of jazz and country to reflect perfectly the simple, earnest sentiment of the composition. Beyond continuing his recording career as a sideman for celebrated artists, Levy has risen as a songwriter in his own right. His compositions have been recorded by Norah Jones, Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket), and Miles Zuniga (Fastball). The full force of Adam Levy’s songwriting is in play on his six solo recordings, the latest being 2016’s lyrically driven Blueberry Blonde - a collaboration with drummer Jay Bellerose.
