ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Adam Trice is an American musician and singer-songwriter from Baltimore, MD. In 2007, he began performing and recording as Red Sammy as solo and duo projects and with a rotating cast of musicians. Trice’s music is a unique blend of rock, folk, country, blues, and Americana styles.

The band name is taken from a minor character, Red Sammy Butts, in American southern gothic writer, Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” (1955). The songwriting embraces the beauty in imperfection. Life, work, hard work, disappointment, love and loss are all themes entwined in the songs that lyrically hang together with a poetic sensibility. Notable songwriters and writers of inspiration include: Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Alejandro Escovedo, Tom Waits, Tom Petty, Lucinda Williams, Frank Black/The Pixies, Raymond Carver, W.C. Williams, Ernest Hemmingway, Charles Bukowski, and many others.

Trice has released five album’s (Red Sammy Self-titled release, 2007; Dog Hang Low, 2009; A Cheaper Kind of Love Song, 2011; These Poems With Kerosene, 2013, and Creeps & Cheaters, 2015) as well as one book of poetry with accompanying soundtrack (In Places with Bad Lighting, 2010).

Red Sammy (in various band arrangements) has opened for national/regional artists including: Mike Watt and the Missingmen, Deer Tick, Mark Kozelek of Red House Painters, Phosphorescent, Dirty River Boys, Reckless Kelly, Fly Golden Eagle. Past festival performances include: FloydFest 2015, Denver Underground Music Festival 2011, Toronto Underground Folk Festival 2011, Artscape 2011, 2013, 2015 (Baltimore, MD), Baltimore Folk Festival 2013 and 2014, Baltimore Book Festival 2012 and 2013, HonFest 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015 (Baltimore, MD), Run for Your Lives Zombie 5K and Festival, Fringe Festival (Buffalo, NY).


“Red Sammy's blues-soaked Americana is simultaneously sparse and powerful, direct and convincing,” – Baltimore Magazine

If you like your singing gritty, your tunes roughly hewn from country blues and your poetry sharp and to the point, this is just for you," Americana UK
