Discovery: Adam Melchor

Adam Melchor is an acoustic singer songwriter from New Jersey, USA who has teamed up with fellow singer songwriter Emily Warren for his new track The Last Song On Earth.

By Graeme Smith

You might think with a title like The Last Song On Earth it might be a bit of a doom-laden number. On the contrary, it’s an airy and hopeful affair. Adam and Emily’s harmonies are beautifully pitched, taking centre stage with a simple guitar riff the only accompaniment.

But what drew me most to Adam’s song was the lyrics. Very much of the time, the song reflects on the situation in which we find ourselves, questioning the status quo we’ve all accepted, flaws included. The verses are filled with astute observations and little moments, like missing the simple action of picking up your wallet as you leave the door.
