Billions Welcomes Adam Torres

Billions Welcomes Adam Torres

Billions proudly announces our newest client, Adam Torres. In 2006, Adam Torres was attending Ohio University where he made a name for himself in the small town with the release of his debut album, Nostra Nova. A DIY self-release, Nostra Nova found deep, long-lasting roots within the small Athens, OH community at the time, but didn’t resonate farther until much later. With a move to Austin, Texas for graduate school and about 100 songs written, he quietly released his first music since Nostra Nova in 2012 through DC cassette-label DZ Tapes.

In 2015, Nostra Nova saw a small reissue and finally achieved its due, earning additional praise from Stereogum, VICE, Popmatters, All Music Guide, and Flavorwire. Torres and his band, comprised of Thor Harris (Swans), Aisha Burns, and Dailey Tolliver, will head out on a run of U.S. dates in June. The tour will wind through the midwest and southeast before wrapping up in June in Lafayette, LA. His new album will be released via Fat Possum Records, expected out this fall.

In 2015, The A.V. Club streamed the newly reissued, Nostra Nova writing, “it was chronically underappreciated then and has become a cult classic since.” Stereogum premiered “Dusty Wing Spirit,” describing, “[Torres’ voice] croons, tenderly emoting against impossibly warm keyboard accompaniment. It’s very pretty.” Listen to the record here, watch the video for “Dusty Wing Spirit,” and listen to “Alone Together” below. Catch Adam Torres on tour.
