About Adam Sweeney and the Jamboree
Adam Sweeney & the Jamboree is an indie folk rock band from Portland, OR. Their music is like "The Sound of Silence" after the band kicks in: all jangle and harmony, poppy yet literary, brooding and celebratory all at the same time. They released a self-titled debut album Adam Sweeney & the Jamboree in June 2011.
"Explosive in its layers of Americana-with welcome harmonies joining Sweeney's Dylanesque voice and violins augmenting banjo and guitar-the Jamboree record finds Sweeney at his best, leading his party into a lucid world that bounds between twee folk and seriously affecting songwriting." -Ap Kryza, Willamette Week
"Mere months removed from the release of the Wildest Rose EP, Adam Sweeney teams with his trusty backing band the Jamboree for yet another recording. On the just-released self-titled LP, the singer/songwriter dabbles in dusty-road rural Americana (think Ryan Adams) and a more straightforward sound that would feel at home on radio dials (think Josh Ritter). . . Rootsy opening number 'Bound to Go' accentuates Sweeney's dialed-in approach to penning concise folk-rock songs without need for gimmicks or unnecessary flair." -Ezra Ace Caraeff, The Portland Mercury
