Western Soul - Todd Adelman

Western Soul

“Western Soul puts the out-west sunset in the rearview mirror and sees it from a back-east perspective. Distance punctuates proximity. Youth yields to age. Substance overcomes flash. Subjects, like objects in the mirror, are closer than they appear.”

Time Will Tell

“… [Adelman’s] music brings to mind the weary resilience of such revered individuals as Gram Parsons, John Prine, Townes Van Zandt and the grandaddy of them all, Hank Williams.”

-Glide Magazine

Highways & Lowways

“…It’s no surprise then, that the album recorded at The Mountain House, Adelman’s studio in Nederland, is rich, deep and polished. From the wailing guitar and country beat of the opener “Cold Mississippi Blues,” which sounds like a lost Robert Earle Keen track, to the subdued ballad of “Ghost Train” to the thick, funky, baritone saxophone on “Oh Marie,” and gorgeous story of “Wabash Avenue,” Highways and Lowways winds like a country road through fields of Americana, pastures of roots rock and hillsides of outlaw country…”

Todd Adelman & The Lovehandles

“I’ll call this one now… easily the BEST alternative country record of the year out of Colorado – and maybe the best alt- country record I’ve heard this past year, period.”

-The Colorado Sound

Todd Adelman & The Love Handles reached #4 on the National Roots Chart, #1 on the Colorado Roots Chart and has broken into the AMA top 100 as of Nov. 9, 2009.


Produced by Lee Alexander (Norah Jones, Amos Lee, The Little Willies), Diego Voglino (Marshall Crenshaw, Billy Talbot, Natalie Merchant), and Joshua Kessler (The Bravery), the record was recorded live over the course of two long winter days up at Adelman’s Completely Lost Studio in Nederland, CO. The record includes special appearances by Casey Driessen, Eric Moon, Jonny Neill, Pete Rubens and two of Boulder’s finest singer-songwriters Reed Foehl and Danny Shafer.

Henry’s Diner

“Henry’s Diner,” presents fifteen new songs from the Colorado recording artist. With bravely personal songwriting, an unaffected voice, and an old school-production approach, Adelman delivers a deeply riveting record stocked with gritty and dark ballads, serene and reflective soliloquies, and lilting jaunts through country life.


Co-produced with long-time friends Joshua Kessler and Peter Rubens, Henry’s Diner has a stellar cast of renowned NYC session men including, Joe Bonadio on Drums(Martin Sexton, Sloan Wainright), Conrad Korsch(Rod Stewart, Roseanne Cash, Joan Osborne) on Bass, Rebecca Martin on background vocals, Tony Trishka on banjo and pedal-steel wizard Gerald Menke.
