Some of the spaces that Adam James Sorensen shares are as wide as the mouth of a canyon, easily accessed and open to us without posing any danger. My favorites, though, are the ones I have to squeeze into with caution and care, trying to connect to the pain, nostalgia and truth about us all that’s not quite so comfortable.
– Bob Hill
As Sorensen’s lyrics navigate through personal terrain, the subtle tone of his voice carries a warmth that embraces the listener. Returning to Chicago, his native home, was the catalyst for writing and recording his debut, MIDWEST. Evoking a strong melancholic undercurrent, MIDWEST offers the songwriter’s observations with a reflective and honest fragility.
