ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In summer 2011 Athens, Georgia-based singer/songwriter Adam Klein gathered together friends and musical associates to found his first set touring band, Adam Klein & The Wild Fires. Klein had already released three well-received albums featuring assorted all-star line-ups from the talented Athens scene, including Randall Bramblett, John Neff (Drive-By Truckers), David Blackmon, multi-instrumentalist AJ Adams, Lera Lynn, and more, but the formation of The Wild Fires seemed to mark a turning point. Alongside bandmates Steve Abercrombie (bass) and Crash Cason (electric guitar), multi-instrumentalist and engineer Bronson Tew joined the fold and the project was propelled forward. Adam Klein & The Wild Fires toured throughout the southeast and gained steam.

The group began recording an intended four-song vinyl EP in April 2012 at Full Moon Studio in Watkinsville, GA, and the project slowly expanded- first to a six-song 10” and finally into a full length nine-song collection. The songs were certainly there, as Klein found himself with nearly three other albums already written.

Over a matter of months, the band built the songs of "Sky Blue DeVille", and brought in special guests to add deeper colors to the songs’ soft, dynamic sonic palette. Randall Bramblett added piano, wurlitzer, Rhodes, and horns, legendary Hammond B3 maestro Ike Stubblefield contributed hist stylings to closing track “Highway of Your Love”, and David Blackmon sat in for touches of fiddle.

Mixed to tape by Bronson Tew at Dial Back Sound in Water Valley, MS, the nine-song record is a powerful, sweeping collection characterized by a warm, rich analogue aesthetic.

A far cry from his previous release, the acoustic West African ‘Mande’ roots record, "Dugu Wolo", "Sky Blue DeVille" represents yet another step forward for Klein’s versatile songwriting as he continues to explore and expand upon sounds rooted in his exciting brand of Americana and folk.
