“When you’re young, you get sad,” Ryan Adams croons in a song from his critically-acclaimed album, Heartbreaker. Yeah, that checks out. In this week’s Friday Download we have alternative country, singer-songwriter Ryan Adams. Not to be confused with Bryan Adams. Seriously, not to be confused with Bryan Adams. Despite his past as self-destructive and unpredictable, his music is genuine and relatable; songs that are honest, intimate, beautiful. He’s been praised for his strong vocals and thoughtful lyrics. It’s music that you’ll return to all your life. We have audio from three incredible shows, preserved by the Internet Archive below. Free download.

Want to sample his music? Listen to him perform “Lucky Now”.
