A five-time International Songwriting Competition finalist, Adyn Townes has a way with words. His self- deprecating banter disarms any live audience and sets the stage for his beautiful and honest songwriting. Hailing from the east coast of Canada, where storytelling is rich, you can find Townes in the middle of every kitchen party.
His debut full-length album, ‘After The Fall’ was released in July 2018 to great national support. A 2020 East Coast Music Awards nominee (Songwriter of the Year) and winner of the 2019 Music NB award for ‘SOCAN Song of the Year’, Townes’ unique voice and heartfelt lyrics help him stand out from the crowd. With recent performances at Australian Music Week, ECMA, and the world-renowned Folk Alliance International conference in New Orleans, LA, Townes has been making waves both nationally and internationally.
Think Death Cab for Cutie meets David Gray. High energy, but intimate. Beautiful, and clever.
Townes is currently working on his second album, ‘In Frames’, set to be released later this year. He’ll be releasing the album in 3 instalments – the first instalment, In Frames 1A, was released on October 30, 2020.
“Energetic, captivating and enthralling.” – Amanda Hather (Canadian Beats)
