Adam Robert Haug

You’ve probably never heard of Adam Robert Haug, but that won’t be the case for long.  Haug is an up-and-coming solo artist that has recently moved to Omaha and exploded onto the music scene.  By combining electric loop pedals and folk guitar, his unique voice just carries you away to another world.  I honestly can’t say I’ve ever heard a voice like his, it’s magical.  While you’re listening to him you can just close your eyes and drift off to your own little happy place, something that not many bands, or solo artists for that matter, can do.

I really love how Haug uses loop pedals.  A loop pedal enables the artist to record something while he/she is playing the song live and then have immediate feedback. This pedal can record any sound the artist has created and can then have it keep playing while the artist continues to play something else over the previously recorded sound.  Depending on what type of loop pedal the artist uses, he/she can get multiple layers of sounds, and can therefore have a multitude of sounds being made at the same time, creating a full-band sound or more than one voice at the same time.

I also love how his lyrics are so real.  You can tell that he’s singing about things that have happened in his life, the lessons he’s learned and the love that he’s had, because there is actual feeling in his voice.  He also writes about the “legendary” Hotel Frank and other things that you might know about in Omaha.

If you’re looking for some places to see this unsigned artist then check out his MySpace for upcoming shows. You can also listen to many of his songs on his MySpace.

I wish there were some more music videos, but definitely checkout his MySpace and listen to the recordings.  I recommend “Are You Coming Down Adam” and “I Break My Own Heart”, but my favorite is probably “A Goh Ghost”.
