ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"In listening to 'Let It Burn,' it's not hard to hear and feel that Adam is part of that small few who find music as an extension of part of himself that he is willing to share with those who listen. There is a raw compelling quality to his vocals which leads you through the CD from one track to the next — and hitting replay at the end. Adam's music fills a space somewhere between Tom Waits and The Doors with this release." - Wayne Bergerson, Fretz program host, 88.1 FM KVSC

"In all, the 'Let it Burn' EP is a masterfully assembled blues album that flows seamlessly from one track to another and works past its few low points with ease. Hammer’s guitar tells stories as ably as his vocals and leaves a wonderful afterglow. 'Burn' also doesn’t suffer from plights like other local musicians such as low production value, and frankly, sounds like it belongs in any blues lover’s collection. Hopefully we see more blues inspired pieces from this talented folk artist after work finishes on his long awaited album, 'Broken Like You.'" - Chris Bremseth, University Chronicle

Adam Hammer & the Impact’s signature “black and blues” sound is what happens when you put an alternative acoustic singer/songwriter together with a traditional folk and blues musician, a bassist from a screamcore band and a jam band drummer who’s more often a hardcore guitarist.

Hammer’s band features long-time collaborator Dave Cofell on harmonica and slide guitar, Cody “Scribbles” Jergenson on bass and Jon Schulte on drums. The side project band got together to play some of Hammer’s darker songs that just don’t fit in with his more intimate arrangements such as the songs on the "Tattooed Folk EP."

“I had these drop-tuned, bluesy songs that captured more of my dark side and they didn’t exactly fit with my singer/songwriter stuff like ‘Starshine’ and ‘Broken Like You’ that is planned for my upcoming full-length release,” Hammer said.

"Let It Burn" was recorded at Hammer’s Hammered House Productions studio and Rockhouse Productions (rock legend Bobby Vee’s studio) in St. Joseph, Minn.
