In 2000, Ryan Adams broke up with his girlfriend and decided to leave New York and return to Jacksonville, a block away from where he was born. Adams thought that before leaving music, after the end of his previous band, he should give himself one last chance. Make a solo album. He went to Nashville and from there he went out with Heartbreaker, an album that saved his career after the end of Whiskytown.
This album, recorded in a desperate situation, captures the moment that the musician lived. Thanks to these songs, Adams established himself as the child prodigy of American music. In the following years he would also show a unique ability to compose in a wild way with authentic exhibitions.
With this record Ryan Adams, who moved a legend like Elton John, refloated his career when he was on the tightrope with just 25 years. Heartbreaker put it under the proper focus. It was also the starting point of a fast-paced and compulsive career in a guy as strange as he was brilliant, so edge in interviews and concerts as he was extremely sensitive in his compositions. Now Adams’ career is in trouble after the accusations of several women for his conduct, news that demolished what the musician had been building for so many years. This week we wanted to leave the character parked and focus on the work, in this first step of his career.
