The Carnival Kids is an alternative/indie rock project formed by songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Adam Ciminello in August 2012.
Having spent years on the road as a sideman in several successful acoustic and alternative rock bands, Ciminello formed The Carnival Kids with the goal of making music that could boldly defy any single genre while still maintaining a feeling of familiarity. Their self-titled debut album explores common themes of love, change, anxiety, and the overall joy for the moments we have and the people we love.
Wow I can’t believe we are finally back on TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE after being off the air for just over 10 weeks!!! It feels good go back!
Mark and I were honoured to have with us from Poughkeepsie, NY the multi-talented ADAM CIMINELLO.
Adam’s timely guest appearance today co-incided with the release of his debut, self titled album THE CARNIVAL KIDS just four days ago! An album I would be happy to add to my music collection.
Adam was happy to be with us today and gave us some insight into his solo project and album. He told us that he never wanted to just make a record, he wanted to make an album! Yes he did use the word record….some of us are old school and proud of it!
We discussed the awesome feeling you get from listening to an album from start to finish and how in today’s music it is all singles orientated. I remember the days when you remembered bands for their amazing albums and not the singles that they produced from it.
We talked on many topics during the 2 hour show including how he got started on his musical journey, his album of course and his plans for the future of THE CARNIVAL KIDS. He also told us who did the fantastic artwork for his album cover!
Adam’s answer to my Deserted Island Question was the best yet! We had fun and as always lots of laughs!
During the show we featured 3 songs from his album all received well with our listening audience:
The entire album can be heard and purchased from: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/thecarnivalkids
Adam was a fantastic guest on todays show and there was a good support from our listeners that tuned in live. If you would like to hear the entire podcast you can do so from this link: http://www.butterfliesradio.com/home/twitter-tuesday-live/
This is how I feel about THE CARNIVAL KIDS. The album has 16 tracks and is just over an hour long. I have now listened to it over 5 times and it just gets better and better with each listen! I cannot pinpoint any particular to this album, and like Adam says and I quote “The Carnival Kids was made with the goal of making music that could boldly defy any single genre while still maintaining a feeling of familiarity”. I feel Adam has done just that!
Elton John was 26 when he wrote his classic album YELLOW BRICK ROAD, around the same age as ADAM CIMENELLO. What more can I say, you just have to be in the right place at the right time. THE CARNAVAL KIDS deserves to be up there with the best!
The video for BITTER HOLDING has already reached over 200,000 hits on you tube! Check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PECT9hqRwRU
Adam is a very social guy and communicates with his fans and you can find him on these social networks
Adam, Mark and I would like to thank you very much for joining us today. We wish you all the best for the future of THE CARNIVAL KIDS. We look forward to your next guest appearance on TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE!
