Bio

Adam Cousens is known for his positivity and folky roots singer-songwriter songs; but that is all about to change. Coming out of the blocks in 2013 with a bold demeanour and intensity courtesy of his new single Shotgun, Cousens showcases another side to his music that has lay dormant until now. Maintaining an upbeat barometer that will have crowds boot stomping and hollering on his forthcoming tour of Queensland, Shotgun presents a new context for Cousens’ to showcase his undeniable ability to write a story within a song and engage listeners into the world in which he sings about. A grungy-esque spaghetti western style combines with guitar driven pop hooks, church bells, whistles and thumping drums to make Shotgun a non-stop action packed ride from start to finish. Who’s got the number for Tarantino? Shotgun may just be a tune for Django 2.

Well isn't this tune a ripper? Spurts along with charming energy as Adam rattles out a Sergio Leone narrative complete with electrifying whistle solos. Really nice.
