Black and Blue
Black and Blue is the debut single from Sunset, Sun Arising. The song features a protagonist who likens a break-up to dying while reminiscing about their shared love of NIRVANA. In-turn, Adam references song titles, lyrics, and a guitar riff to capture an Alternative Rock feeling from a bygone era of exceptional music. Black and Blue kickstarts an album that will further explore death from a variety of lenses. Though this song is intentionally dramatic and over-the-top, the lyrics touch upon the darkness and anguish of a broken heart.
Bonesyard kicked off their 2015 tour through Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo, and Los Angeles with a stop at Rifftime Studios. This live version The Pelican Man was a band and fan favorite rendition from the original that appeared on Legends of the Pelican Man.
Bonesyard played at Oaktoberfest in 2014 and 2015. Neutral Ground is a song about the beauty and difficulties of life in New Orleans.
This performance of Ocean Beach Blues marked the first time Adam got to play this song featuring a San Francisco locale in San Francisco shortly after he and Rufus moved out of New Orleans
