“an intimate, finely detailed acoustic concert showcasing Adams’ skills as a balladeer, making a convincing argument that he is one of our best chroniclers of heartbreak… he’s probably giving the best performances of his career.”
– Variety
“Easy Tiger’s burnished, vulnerable balladry yields both a proportional elegance and a deep soulfulness”
– Los Angeles Times
“Adams is making the best music of his life and has put together a versatile band that follows his every twist and turn.”
– Portland Oregonian
Every band struggles to some extent with how to recreate their studio work on stage, and that struggle can be exacerbated when a catalog is as diverse (and yes, as large) as that of Ryan Adams & The Cardinals. But as evidenced by the above quotes (any many others like them) Ryan & The Cards are not only living up to the high bar set by Ryan’s new album Easy Tiger, but are by many accounts turning in their best performances ever. The band has just wrapped up a hugely successful summer tour and announced a new batch of fall dates that launches immediately after an upcoming two week tour of New Zealand and Australia.
Calling Easy Tiger a “high bar” is perhaps an understatement; the album has been widely hailed as some of Ryan’s best work to date. As People noted, “Adams is still capable of the real revelation, as on ‘I Taught Myself To Grow Old’, where he schools the competition on how to make a heartbreakingly beautiful ballad.” Time called the album “a career breakthrough”, and Entertainment Weekly summed it up nicely: “Easy Tiger keeps it simple: beguiling melodies, an ace band, and Adams’ elastic tenor.”
