“Adam Stephens is best known as guitarist and vocalist for San Francisco duo Two Gallants. Stylistically rooted in the blues and folk influences of decades past, Stephens offers an independent voice seemingly unaffected by the confines propagated by musical contemporaries. For those accustomed to the rhythmically backed context in which Stephens typically performs, expect a performance more akin to Two Gallants' 2007 acoustic release "The Scenery of Farewell", complete with Stephens' intricate fingerpicking and lyrics befitting a classic novelist.” Anne Ostrowski
“’He's like 26 years old and he sounds like Mississippi John Hurt," says Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes). Fairfield plays fiddle and banjo player and strums back-porch bluegrass, complete with shaky jug-band vocals reminiscent of The Foggy Mountain Boys from way back in the '40s (think O Brother, Where Art Thou?). "He's kinda crazy. He has his own radio show where he just plays these old gramophones. He just puts a mic up and plays all these field recordings from the 1900s; it's insane. He dresses like it's the early 1900s. He's born out of time, and his voice is amazing.’” - Rolling Stone
