A standing ovation at Woodford folk Festival marked the release of Adam's debut EP “Dreams and Alibis” in 2012. Since then he has been captivating audiences up and down Australia's East Coast and abroad with his passionate multi-instrumental mix of blues, folk and roots, sharing the stage with the likes of Lior, OKA, Ganga-giri and many other local and national acts.
Incorporating intricate finger picking,virtuoso and percussive guitar techniques, yidaki (didgeridoo), harmonica, a foot stomp and conscious lyrics, Adam's passion for music is clear and infectious.Moving to the Sunshine coast in 2009 and involving himself with the local music scene, Adam began to working on a live show incorporating much of what he had seen and heard on his travels.
Touring England and Europe has been a major focus in the last three years. Spending 3-4 months each year based in England and many miles travelled to keep the show on the road.
Itchy feet has kept Adam moving with years spent in Europe, Africa and Australia exploring the diverse cultures, tastes and sounds.
Moving to Brisbane in 2008, Adam progressed into the independent music scene, playing at venues, festivals and events up and down the east coast.
A constant flow of new material has kept Adam's passion for music alive and his songs relate to his travel experience and philosophical approach to the challenges of life.
A move to Darwin in early 2015 sees a new place to call home, playing local shows and markets winning over audiences at every turn, Adam is looking forward to what the future holds but very much enjoying life at the present.
