MEDIA QUOTES:

“A musical duo that is so hot right now,you’ll wanna cool your jets...

land and take a listen to The Flyin’ A’s”

- Jason Wheeler, CBS News

 

“Stuart and Hilary deliver a spirited brand of original music.

It’s a fusion of country, rock, jazz and gospel.”

                                                  -Sam Kindrick, Action Magazine

 

“The country is ready for The Flyin’ A’s...

Great on CD...Awesome live!”

-Rudy Fernandez, 101.5 KEAN 

Program Director

 

 

“This husband-and-wife duo serves up a cool blend of country, folk, Jazz and rock.

The songs are excellent, as are the vocals and music.”

- Jim Beal,  San Antonio Express Newspaper

 

”With their considerable talents as both songwriters and vocalists, they combine for a spirited and soulful explosion of distinctively original music. 

Whether tapping your toes one minute, or getting swept up by the heart-wrenching ballads the next, there’s no denying that you’ll be entertained.”

- Mike Hall, Uncle Calvin's Coffee House

"This charisma laden duo grabs ya by the neck and slaps you silly for short bursts of fun!  Hillary Claire Adamson exudes enough “pizzaz” to heat a building and her low key cool hubby Stuart compliments so well.  Their latest album,”You Drive Me Crazy”, is chocked full of goodies like “Little Miss Tumbleweed”, “I Won’t Stop Loving You” and “Mr. Blue”.  On top of that it was announced that this killer couple has joined the already strong board of Folk Alliance.  They’ve been behind the scenes helping at seminars for years and it will be a major plus having them on the Dalis team!  The song “We Won’t Back Down” personifies the upbeat wonderful attitude these two carry with them always."

-Eddie "The Edge" Houston Music Review

"Texan couple, Hilary and Stuart Adamson are the Flyin’ A’s, their name taken from a brand that was seared onto the hides of cattle many moons ago on Stuart Adamson’s family ranch. As such its an apt name because in common with their bovine forebears they can be described as s*(t kicking in the best sense... Adamson writes well and several of the songs could be comfortably grafted onto on any number of top selling country artists..."

- Paul Kerr, Bladder'n'Smoke, A Galgow view of Americana realted music and writings

"If there was YELP! just for touring musicians, The Fyin’ A’s would get my FIVE STAR review. From start to finish, this class act was a joy and a pleasure to book, market, and present at our thriving house concert series. Hilary Claire Adamson is a great communicator, and we nailed down details for the show early thanks to her professionalism and attention to every detail. And with her partner in life, business, and music, Stuart Adamson, they put on a superb show that delighted our discerning audience. Whether dueting on their shared songs, or soloing on vocals or guitar, The Flyin’ A’s utilize their extensive touring schedule to hone a sound that bridges Texas and Colorado, East Coast and West, Americana and the influences of many trips across the pond, to deliver a tight set of songs that span touching to hilarious, quiet to raucous, and personal to connecting with a diverse fan base. Catch them if you can, and be sure to check out the recorded gems by this outstanding husband-and-wife duo."

More Quotes:

"The Flyin’ A’s, the husband-and-wife team of Stuart Adamson and Hilary Claire Adamson, work as a duo and sometimes front a band. Either way, listeners get to hear a blend of country, folk and swing/jazz, originals and standards, powered by excellent picking, sharp vocals and personality. "

yeah, we weren't joking when we said we were 100% independent!

The Flyin' A's are in an Independent Americana Music Duo and are in no way associated with

WWF, The American League of Women's Boxing, The Minor League Squash Society, The Ice Capades Francise or any Major League Baseball team including the Oakland A's.

Although we are big fans of The Spurs, The Cowboys, The Minnesota Twins and The Packers, Dale Watson...

and of course are devoted followers of Willie Nelson.
