red steppes and Adam Ingram

Tidewings Creative presents an evening of music with red steppes and Adam Ingram at the Lab in Carmel.  

red steppes’ debut A Mouth May Grow was rooted firmly in the topography of California; her sophomore release Arcs (Native Cat Recordings, out May 31 2019) is the fruit of a series of displacements, disturbances, and reorientations. Stylistically diverse, the album delivers minimalist guitar pop, mathy folk, and even a Peter Gabriel-tinged meditation on loss, finding equilibrium in songwriter Nika Aila States’ intimate vocals. Arcs is plush with the kind of photographic lyricism States began exploring with A Mouth May Grow; songs fondly addressed to lovers are mindful of an inevitable transience, lullabies keep account both of the world’s smallest gestures and its great ruins, and a series of scenes unfold as a prayer of sustenance, a knowing salutation aimed at fellow travelers and sailors-by-the-wind.

Adam Ingram is a singer songwriter from Monterey, California.  His style varies from gritty vocals and an indie rock sound, to tender, folky lyricism paired with fingerstyle guitar.  A former member of the group Valley Soul, Ingram now lives in Birmingham, Alabama, where he is beginning to make his way into the city’s music scene. 

Tickets are $8 at the door. Beer and wine available for purchase.  Doors at 5pm, show starts shortly after.
