Adam Baldwin is a Dartmouth, Nova Scotia based musician and songwriter, perhaps best known as a member of Matt Mays’ band since 2008. After a debut EP that offered a taste of his abilities, he has come into his own on his debut full-length album, No Telling When (Precisely Nineteen Eighty-Five), released in June 2016. The title is a concept, as Baldwin imagines New York City in 1985, while the city was still in transition from the downtrodden 1970s and at the height of yuppie madness. In No Telling When, Baldwin suggests we haven’t come very far. That’s a recurring theme on the record—broken dreams, political strife, and systemic failure. With his warm, sincere voice, Baldwin offers up insights that may lean dark and dreary, but are delivered with pop precision and propulsive energy.
