Adam Kline’s future looks bright

If Saturday’s gig at Cooper’s was any indication of what is in store for Adam Kline’s musical career, he will go far.

Kline’s career leaped forward with the first of three CD-release parties in honor of his debut release with Golden Shoulders on Doppler Records. Kline wanted the first party to be in his hometown. Other CD release parties are Saturday at Old Ironsides in Sacramento and Sunday at the Makeout Room in San Francisco.

During Cooper’s gig,Golden Shoulders – a revolving lineup of Kline’s friends formed two years ago – played as if the group had been together for years, whether Kline led with an alternative pop, alternative rock or country-tinged original.

Three of the four Golden Shoulders Saturday – Kline, Jason Graham and Ehren Haas – actually have played together in different configurations since high school.

Saturday’s gig was definitely a party.

Kline, 24, was all smiles as he joked easily with the audience. He had previously said music is all about having fun. Autographing CDs and selling shirts after the show, Kline grinned as he said, “I had fun tonight.”

He had so much fun, in fact, that he agreed to get back on stage and play a few more tunes.

Judging from the reaction of audience members – from 21-year-olds to a few grandmothers – they also had fun at what looks like the beginning of a successful music career for Kline.

“Let My Burden Be” CDs are at Record Connection and Herb Shop Records.
