ApapterAdapter “Give Up The Ghost” & “HEX-X-X” By Nina McCarthy


“Give Up The Ghost” & “HEX-X-X”

Self Released

Available Now

By Nina McCarthy, Sr. Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio


I am not going to pretend I know a lot about ‘the blues’ because I don’t. However, I do know good music and from the first time I heard Massachusetts’ Blues Rock band, AdapterAdapter, I was hooked.


This duo, currently consisting of Nick Ryder on vocals, guitar, Blues harp, and percussion with Alyson Hammond on drums, released two new songs on May 8, 2019 called “Give Up the Ghost” and “HEX-X-X. Upon taking a listen, you won’t believe it’s just the two of them making these beautiful sounds. I guarantee you will not be able to listen without moving at least your head, if not your whole body.


Interestingly, if you meet Nick in person, he is a quiet, shy guy. Put him up on that stage or behind a mic with his guitar and harmonica and you will see a transformation of epic proportions. Take a listen to “HEX-X-X,” the heavier of the two, for yourself and you will get the idea of the energy he evokes. The 70’s inspired smooth rock riffs, sultry vocals and harmonica playing by Ryder are mesmerizing. Hammond keeps the steady beat to let him shine.


Sadly, there isn’t a huge market for Blues Rock in our area. Transplant AdapterAdapter down to Nashville, Austin, or the streets of New Orleans and they would have to quit their day jobs! Thanks to the internet though, they can keep on pleasing our ears from my neighboring state. I look forward to more from this dynamic duo.
