Originally from Somerset, Adam has forged his career in Australia having
lived on the Sunshine Coast for the last 7 years becoming a firm
favourite on the festival scene for his ability to turn his hand to so
many instruments. Not your average solo artist, Adam often plays a
multitude of instruments at once creating a full sound both unique and
enjoyable for most venues. Gaining plaudits in both the UK and Australia
and guest appearing live with other bands he astounds music audiences
and peers with with his blend of guitar, lap steel, stomp-box, didgeridoo and harmonica combined with heart rending vocals.

Irresistible rhythms, lyrical melodies and their own little bit of ‘special sauce’ give us the ingredients for a heart warming, hip swinging sound.
Drawing influence from past and present folk, blues and country

writing, warm husky vocals, intricate finger style and shimmering lap
steel guitar work.
