Although Adam Karch is from Montreal, his music embodies the spirit of Americana like a scenic ride across the country. He plays a hybrid acoustic blues that consists of precise fingerpicking that recalls players such as Chet Atkins and Kelly Joe Phelps, along with an innovative percussive technique that is thoroughly modern, while somehow primal and anchored in tradition.

Karch has a raw talent that was evident from the first time he picked up the guitar at an early age. By age 14, he was fronting bands, headlining clubs, and dazzling audiences with both his spirited guitar playing and soulful singing.

His sound has evolved over the years, from his rock beginnings, to his own acoustic fingerpicking style and an album that was a full-fledge celebration of the blues. He then completely deconstructed the blues with his third album which led listeners to realize that a pop song when stripped down to its essence is indeed a blues song. Karch, the artist, is at once a chameleon and an innovator. He is able to interpret any guitar style note for note, but more impressively, he is able to deconstruct the content and build it into something deliciously unique and completely Adam Karch.

He is now a veteran, playing music festivals from Pensacola (Blues Society of Northwest Florida) to Vancouver (Vancouver Island Blues Bash), and his travels bring him across the country, riding the rails and performing for stunned audiences. These real-life railway adventures became the centerpiece for his fourth and latest record, "Moving Forward". It is an even mix of original songs and cover songs and has received high praise. The Rock Doctor, Gonzo Okanagan, said "Every once in awhile a record comes along that just quietly grabs you by the heart and takes your breath away. For me, that record is Moving Forward. (...) This is definitely a contender for album of the year".
