Album Notes
In 2005, local Baltimore songwriter, Adam Trice, founded the graveyard country rock band, Red Sammy. The band name, a reference to Flannery O'Connor's story, "A Good Man is Hard to Find" (1955), is a perfect pairing for the band's dark and menacing style.

Red Sammy draws upon a variety of both literary and musical influences including Flannery O'Connor, Ernest Hemingway, Anton Chekhov, William Faulkner, William Carlos Williams, Gerald Stern, Alejandro Escovedo, Tom Waits, Neil Young, The Pixies, Iggy Pop and The Stooges, Johnny Cash.

Graveyard Country Rock Music is like a Jackson Pollack black pouring, or a Robert Motherwell elegy. It is imbued with Garcia Lorca’s duende: “black sounds are the mystery.” Gritty, stark storytelling, part southwest rock, part Cash and Escovedo. Sparse, but accessible, there’s a thread that runs through the music, from Hawthorne and Poe (fitting, since we’re from Baltimore), to Faulkner and Flannery O’Conner.
