The Artist: Adam & I
The Song: “If I’m Taken” from their self-titled debut album, out now.
Fun Fact: The husband and wife Americana duo from Nashville released their first EP Amelia’s Living Room Volume 1 in September 2012, which spent a week in the top 10 of NoiseTrade’s “Top Downloads”
Songwriter Says: “”If I’m Taken” was a song we actually sat down and wrote together – face to face – in our living room one evening. Andrea started playing a piano part that sounded like an old music box, so that kind of spawned the idea to give the song a sweet, almost child-like “bedtime prayer” feel to it. I always thought of the lyrics as if they were a “last love letter” – something you would find maybe after your loved one has pasted on. We thought it was a different approach to a love song that we hadn’t really heard before.”
