West Coaster Julie Adams meets Native New Englander Michael Costello in this synergistic guitar and vocal duo.  Currently based in Oregon, they perform and record together regularly, bringing a unique blend of visceral song writing and soulful performing.

Meeting at a Lucinda Williams concert in Boston, Massachusetts was an interesting start to this musical couple's journey.  Combining Costello's love of roots music along with Adams' strong draw to driving rhythms, this pair creates a unique sound which comes alive during their live performances.  

Costello, a roots blues rock veteran, grew up playing in Boston, Mass clubs, writing songs since he was 12.  His earlier band Razor's Edge saw success opening for such big acts as Jimmy Cliff.    

Adams' latest songwriting ventures and sultry rich vocals, combined with her exciting live performances,  have been turning the heads of soulfully minded music-goers.

Adams & Costello, when teamed together, produce a full range of sounds and emotional storylines which are explored in their recent work.  


In their live performances, Adams & Costello give an electric and eclectic  soulful, americana-rock, bluesy full band sound.  Their passion for making music together is palpable in their songwriting, and their meshing of sounds is a musical force.
