Bio

Louisiana native Adam Crochet is a singer, songwriter, and guitar player living in New Orleans.  

Adam Crochet’s recent release Real Good Love, is a collection of honest solo performances and driving band arrangements showcasing Crochet’s soulful voice, rollicking guitar and clever songs. Crochet is the originator of Louisiana Smooth Blues, a genre that blends classic blues, New Orleans funk, soul and R&B as well as Louisiana folk and roots music.  Full with raw emotion and danceable grooves, Crochet’s sound has drawn comparisons to Allen Toussaint, Buddy Guy and John Mooney. As a performer, Crochet is an improvisational specialist, skillful and open-hearted, improvising solos, arrangements and even lyrics.  In fact, according to Crochet, some of his most popular songs were written “In a moment, live on stage.”

Today, Crochet stays busy, mainly writing and performing original songs with his band the Louisiana Smooth Blues and his big dumb conspiracy band the Jerk Offisers. You will also find him backing the legendary Big Chief Monk Boudrueaux as bandleader for the Golden Eagles or hosting his podcast, The Truth is Dumb: A New Orleans Musician Chat Show- one of the most popular shows in its genre. Equally at home trading blues leads with Tommy Castro and Popa Chubby on a Blues Cruise, getting funky with Walter “Wolfman” Washington in a sweaty New Orleans bar, or singing songs solo with a resonator guitar on a festival stage, Adam Crochet can always be found somewhere playing hard and putting on a show.
