'Wide Open' sees the long-awaited return of Lack of Afro (aka Adam Gibbons). Doing what he does best and containing all of his renowned sonic signatures, 'Wide Open' hits hard from the outset and doesn't let up. Pounding drums, stabbing horns and spoken word samples combine underneath a killer wah-wah guitar melody to create a true return to form from one of the leaders of the genre.

“Its been over 2 years since the last Lack of Afro record, so I knew that the first track back had to hit and to hit hard.” explains Adam. “It's a statement track really, one that sets its stall out early doors and hopefully gets people digging in. I've been through a fair bit in my personal life since the last record - I've had some demons to overcome and 'Wide Open' to me feels like a fresh start and a new chapter. It's the sound of someone overcoming adversity.”

A colossus of the funk & soul world, Adam Gibbons (aka Lack of Afro) has been putting out music for over 15 years now. During his recent two year hiatus from releasing new music as Lack of Afro, he re-issued his much loved debut LP ‘Press On’ on vinyl, immediately selling out the first run. He also released an album under his own name Adam Gibbons, one under the LUSTRE moniker and an EP as The Damn Straights along with longtime collaborator and emcee Herbal T. He accepted an invitation to record at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals back in February and his since been busy in the studio working on more music for 2023.
