Adrian Crowley is an Irish singer-songwriter (born 1979). Crowley is a native of Barna, County Galway, but he lives in Dublin. He released his first album, ""A Strange Kind", in 1999. His music sounds like "a heartbroken steam engine whistling Tennyson's 'In Memoriam' as set to music by Leonard Cohen. (Not my own words, I'll have you know)", as Crowley wrote, on his MySpace page. "Crowley's music is steeped in the popular folk tradition of the 1970s, calling to mind storytelling songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake with a strong, often central emphasis on lyrics.
