Adler & Hearne 6-16-2017

From outside the rural arts hamlet of Winnsboro in the upper east side of Texas, award-winning performing songwriters Lynn Adler and Lindy Hearne (self-proclaimed “organic song farmers”) tour nationally, serving up jazz- and blues-infused original songs in a genre they define simply as Texas Folk. Honored to be selected by the Texas Commission on the Arts to serve on the state’s official Texas Touring Roster, the duo also enjoys the title of Official Texas Touring Artists for the September 2014-2018 touring season.

Adler & Hearne’s music has grown deep roots in the pineywoods of their Spring Hollow Organic Song Farm. In 2016, the duo celebrated 15 years of organic song farming (A.K.A. writing songs with roots in real life) with the October release of their fifth duo recording “Simpatico” – a self-produced, double CD featuring 24 original songs – one disc Folk; the other disc Spirit. Though released late in the year, “Simpatico” was named among the FOLK DJ Top CDs of 2016. A number of songs on the new bare-bones recording feature seasoning added with a light hand, from guest musical artists Lloyd Maines, Glenn Fukunaga and Pat Manske.

Adler & Hearne’s 2014 release “Second Nature,” was produced by Texas music legend Lloyd Maines, and made the FOLK DJ Top 10. In 2005, the couple released their first duo CD in the form of a live, house-concert recording aptly named “Opposites Attract.”

Their musical formative years share common experiences in folk, classical and gospel music – organic influences that inform their singing and songwriting. But the subject matter of their songs knows no bounds, nor does their musical style. Adler & Hearne’s live sets range from harmonic convergence on songs of love and longing, losing and finding – to covering touchy subjects with unexpected musical overtones – to camping it up with modern day spirituals steeped in dry wit.
