Super excited to be bringing Adam Stafford back through to the Tolbooth, kicking off the first SB show of the new season after the summer break.

The Falkirk musician is a peerless creative juggernaut, blending a capela experimentalism with an unusual sway for melodic, hook-laden pop choruses, always unique and always catching you off guard. Stafford is known for his intense live performances which incorporate soul-pop, post-punk and with layering of vocal loops, textural soundscapes to dizzying effect.

Usually performing solo, this show will be a rare opportunity to catch Adam with a bassist/keyboardist player in tow as he tours promoting 2018’s ‘Fire Behind The Curtain’ – a critically acclaimed double album of Neo-Classical compositions and avant-garde instrumentals, released via influential indie label Song, by Toad. Written over an 8-year period and inspired by Adam’s love of Meredith Monk, Michael Gordon and US Minimalism, the album is a testament of hope in his battle against depression.

In his own words the album is comprised of “choirs yelp and screech, beatboxing courses through cosmic k-holes and guitars sound like saxophones trapped deep in the wasp-machine.”

Listen to ‘Fire Behind The Curtain’

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Strange Behaviours: Adam Stafford are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
