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.

Conjuring up the mood of 1930’s Paris, fused with the energy of a gypsy campfire jam session, The Schmoozenbergs are a group of musicians with a passion for gypsy swing music.
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 musicians from both sides of the Atlantic, as well as artists from other genres Leo’s music has been described as soulful mix of no nonsense honest song writing, warm husky vocals, intricate finger style and shimmering lap steel guitar work.

This mysterious coming together of Richard'Velvet Chestnut' Hughes, lost troubadour from a deserted circus, and Hungarian percussionist Adam Pettick is very likely to conjure up the drifting smoke of carousing campfires as well as the stark shadows of forbidding forests.
