• Neil & Adam

Review by Eclectic Music Lover

Favorite song lists, reviews, featured indie artists, and music commentary.

Neil and Adam are singer / songwriters Neil McCloskey and Adam Hilligardt, who hail from suburban St. Louis, Missouri (my previous home), and are the second St. Louis-based band I’ve featured on this blog.  The two men have worked together musically since high school, and make pleasing folk/rock/pop music that reminds me a bit like that of Gavin DeGraw and John Mayer. Their latest single “Everything is Alright” is an infectiously uplifting song that’s getting a lot of airplay on indie radio stations across the U.S., Australia, the U.K. and elsewhere.

The song’s hopeful lyrics speak to how inner beauty is more important than one’s appearance: “It doesn’t matter what you look like, look like, everything is alright, you’re still an open book. What makes you think he doesn’t want you, want you? Don’t you want to have another look?  What’s it gonna take to get into your heart?”

Musically, the song opens with an assertive drum beat, then Neil’s beautiful, plaintive vocals take over, with a great hook that immediately pulls you in. The strong drum beat continues, propelling the song forward, accompanied by Neil’s deft guitar and Adam’s gentle keyboards that add a lovely undercurrent to the song. The more I listened to “Everything is Alright,” the more I liked it. Take a listen to this gem:
