"Louisiana native Adam Crochet is a singer, songwriter, and guitar player living in New Orleans. Following 2013's A New Kind of Funk by The Wild Magnolias, Adam Crochet is releasing Real Good Love, a collection of honest solo performances and driving band arrangements showcasing Crochet's soulful voice, rollicking guitar and clever songs. Crochet is the originator of Louisiana Smooth Blues, a genre that blends classic blues, New Orleans funk, soul and R&B as well as Louisiana folk and roots music. Full with raw emotion and danceable grooves, Crochet's sound has drawn comparisons to Allen Toussaint, Buddy Guy and John Mooney. As a performer, Crochet is an improvisational specialist, skillful and open-hearted, improvising solos, arrangements and even lyrics. In fact, according to Crochet, some of his most popular songs were written In a moment, live on stage. Crochet found his first guitar in his grandfather's attic in Acadiana and he played his first paying gig in New Orleans at 14 years old. Since then, Crochet has played with his own projects and collaborated with countless musicians. Today, Crochet stays busy, mainly writing and performing original songs and backing Monk Boudrueaux & the Golden Eagles and the Wild Magnolias, two of New Orleans legendary Mardi Gras Indian groups. Equally at home trading blues leads with Tommy Castro and Popa Chubby on a Blues Cruise, getting funky with Walter Wolfman Washington in a sweaty New Orleans bar, or singing songs solo with a resonator guitar on a festival stage, Adam Crochet can always be found somewhere playing hard and putting on a show."
