Live Music at 6-9 pm Cost-Free

Beautiful is the word you hear every time Adrian Nye's music is described.  Never a dull routine strum, his guitar work has lead and rhythm built in, whether it's an uptempo song or a ballad.  An accomplished fingerstyle guitarist, Adrian works a melody into everything he plays and mixes instrumentals seamlessly into his set.  Every song has a story or a concept or deep meaning that adds depth and rewards a repeated listen.

Adrian's full-length record West With the Night was released in 2018 on Blue Dome Records, and is getting airplay on Folk, Americana, and AAA radio stations nationwide.   It's a full band record featuring a cast of top-notch Austin musicians, and was produced by Bradley Kopp in Austin, TX.   Stay tuned to see if the record charts in 2018.

Adrian is a veteran of Boston new wave band Lizards in a Circle, which played too many bars in the 80s and 90s.   More recently he recorded an EP of his collaboration with Tessa Canzona, which features her amazing voice and Adrian's guitar.   Adrian developed his songwriting craft in Austin, Texas, and under the tutelage of Colorado great Chuck Pyle.

Adrian is an avid whitewater kayaker and lived for 5 years in a van traveling the country and camping by the river.  Many of his songs reflect that natural imagery.

The song Church of the Blue Dome has been translated into Spanish and is currently being played at environment demonstrations in Ecuador.

"What're you doing there?  That's cool." - Chuck Pyle

"Right now West with the Night is rotating with Todd Rundgren and Randy Newman in my car, and stands up with both of them.  Great work!" - Joe Strouse, Strousongs, Austin TX

"Adrian's song Wind River is a masterpiece.  First time I heard it, I knew he was onto something." -  George Ensle (legendary Austin musician who's been performing for 50 years)

"A new voice in modern folk/americana with intricate fingerpicking, a mellow vibe, smokey vocals, and well-crafted lyrics." - Jenny Reynolds

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Tintero Moscato

    #1 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Bonavita Red

    #2 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone. (behind by 24 bottles)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #3 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays. (behind by 9 bottles)

    #4 Donausonne Blaufrankish

    If you can't pronounce this grape don't worry! Neither can anyone else. Sweet berry and red fruits in this light, pretty wine from Hungary. Rich flavor with no bitter tannins. A great sweeter red that is a big seller here. Many folks feel its the only red wine for them! (behind by 9 bottles)
