Adam Arcuragi Adam Arcuragi

Philadelphia’s Adam Arcuragi is a full-throated songwriter whose wavering tone gives his eclectic folk songs a haunting quality. With his voice and acoustic guitar unadorned, Arcuragi surrounds himself with ambient instrumentation, as he confidently makes his way through epic songs. While it works well enough on "All the Bells” and "Delicate,” the leaner, jaunty approach he employs on "RSMPA” and "The Christmas Song” provides the record’s most rewarding moments. In these instances, Arcuragi recalls the Great Lake Swimmers melancholic optimism and reveal a young songwriter on the rise. (High Two)
