Adeem the Artist – “ICU”

Adeem the Artist is an undeniable talent. There’s such a level of consistency to their work that is nearly unmatched by anyone else rising the ranks of the Americana/country scene. With “ICU,” the singer-songwriter extends a compassionate hand to those struggling with mental health. “And were that I could hold you like a father would through the tumultuous seasons of your childhood,” they sing over stringy guitar and piano. “Looked you in the eyes and I believe it was understood I saw you.” Those words crash into the eardrums with force, offering peace and calm to an anxiety-riddled brain. Later, they remind the listener that “you are loved, you are treasured.” What a stunning, important performance that grips you down in your soul. It could move mountains.
