Adam Remnant got his start fronting the folk-rock band Southeast Engine. As the principal singer and songwriter of the band, Remnant and his bandmates garnered critical acclaim from publications such as Paste Magazine, Pitchfork, NPR, American Songwriter, Magnet, Stereogum, PopMatters, AV Club, and many more. They established a substantial following over the years, releasing five albums and touring across the United States and Canada.
As Southeast Engine wound down, Remnant began plotting his way forward as a solo artist. He assembled a little studio in his basement and earnestly began writing & recording the songs that comprise the 2016 EP, When I Was a Boy, as well as the 2018 LP, Sourwood. Remnant’s signature baritone voice and literary songwriting act as the focal point in the productions spanning between folk, rock, and indie sounds mined from a Midwest basement.
In the summer of 2019, Remnant took up film photography as a new means of artistic expression. Remnant's photography explores many of the same themes of his music, including place, memory, history, and identity. Remnant typically shoots landscape/documentary style color photos of his surroundings as well as neighboring towns and cities.
Remnant continues to work on new music, including a forthcoming EP, entitled Sunrise at the Sunset Motel. The album is recorded and performed by Adam Remnant and his working band, consisting of brother, Jesse Remnant, on bass and harmony vocals; Ryan Stolte-Sawa on violin and harmony vocals, and Jon Helm on drums.
