Adeem the Artist presented by Folk All Y’all
Adeem Maria (they/them) is a seventh-generation Carolinian, a makeshift poet, singer-songwriter, storyteller, and blue-collar Artist. Blending a homegrown affection for Country Music with the emotional turmoil of alternative folk in the early aughts, they have created a unique brand of Americana that pays homage to John Prine and John Darnielle (of The Mountain Goats) in equal parts.
Imbued with the ancestral traces of southern music and colored by a palette ranging from lo-fi anti-folk to post-punk, the songs traverse the vast compass of human emotion. Whether opining on the disparity of hooch and booch in the collision of generations or straddling the duality of being a blue collar boy who is a complicated dame, Adeem excavates unwonted stories of the forgotten south.
We’re just over the moon to welcome Adeem and the band out for a night of revelry and rabble-rousing. Y’all come on out!
PLEASE NOTE: This show will presented at B-SIDE Memphis, inside Minglewood Plaza.
