Keep a look out, got some new gigs coming your way

“Life is just as much about traveling, the journey as the destination, join me in some of my musical highlights on my journey below, come to a show, maybe sign my shoes.”

2013 was the year Adams’ Debut EP ‘People, Places, Things’  was released on his own label ‘Pensive Pop . Recorded with producer Dave Izumi ( Duke Special, Luke Sital Singh ) at Batbox Studios in Lewes , featuring the amazingly talented sock wearing John Parker of Nizlopi on Double Bass and equally as wonderful Alex Priest (Union Sound Set) on cello. The EP was featured in TV adverts, short films, Hollyoaks and featured on the BBC6 New Music Mixtape from Tom Robinson.

2014 was a busy year for Adam. With 2 EP’s released ( Words Build Worlds Live EP March 2014) (Cathedrals EP December 2014) , a UK Tour , lots of live radio sessions and live reviews, culminating in being BBC Introducing track of the day & featuring on the BBC6 Music New Music Mixtape with Tom Robinson.  Other highlights included playing on the Iain Lee Show for BBC West Midlands and being played on over 50 new Radio stations, not a bad year.

2015 is looking like it’s heating up with a another new EP on the horizon and a whole bunch of more tour dates this March, be sure to see Adam as he comes to play music in your town.

Pre 2012 Previously Adam has worked with Chris Wood of Bastille, Ed Sheeran and recorded a bunch of songs at the home of Status Quo front man Francis Rossi with producer Greg Jackman ( Prince, Seal, Gary Moore)

Adams’ vision is for more music and art to be created and shaped by ,with and for the communities in which we live.

“For me, as a singer/songwriter, the best thing is to be able to articulate the invisible… You can say things that can’t be said in normal conversation.”

Tour of Interruption // The Real Deal

SO , I’ve just returned from playing 20 Venues around the country as part of the Coffee House Tour. It was an absolute blast, I met some great people, did many a fun radio session and met some creative drivers, which is the one place you don’t want to experience a great deal of creativity – on the actual road!

Some highlights of the tour were playing Winchester University where we got an epic little encore as well as a few little house gigs for some wonderful people.  I also LOVED playing Keele University to what ended up being a packed out Monday Lunch time show!

As you know I sadly had to postpone the Scotish dates as well as those in Bath & Newcastl, Teeside & Leeds as I’d completely lost my voice! Some days we played 5/6 shows a day plus some radio sessions and my poor little voice decided it needed a rest. The new EP we’ve been promoting is is aptly called ‘The Art Of Interruption’ and is about enjoying the moment in your life where you feel interruption and when things don’t go your way! It would seem at these times there’s a whole lot more beautiful to be experienced if you get stuck in with the interruption instead of wishing things went ( in the words of Frank Sinatra) ‘My Way’ .

 

Hopefully we can reschedule some of those shows we missed but in the meantime I’m working on some new songs, ready to release a little double A side which is going to be exclusively released at a mighty London Headline Full band show we’re playing June 30th at The Servant Jazz Quarters. There are only a limitted number of tickets and you can get your tickets here

Will be in touch with more news as I get it!
until then, enjoy each second , if when you get interrupted.

 

love Adam xx

The Interruption Behind the Art

The Interruption Behind the Art |  4 Track Breakdown

Over the past month or so myself and a handful of wonderful friends have recorded what I believe to be my best record to date! I thought it only fair to give a track by track breakdown for you of what’s to come! If you are one of the brave people who pledged for a copy in advance, then you’ll have a digital copy in your email inbox by the end of February ( and a physical by the end of March!)

For everyone else you can pre-order your copy through this site on the ‘Releases’ page. I didn’t want to go into too much depth on each song as art should be subjective and I hope it stays at least partly that way!

THIS SOON TOO SHALL PASS  Life lost it’s vibrancy. I became super tired of the mundane. I also became tired of myself chasing whatever great idea I thought i had. I wrote some words down picked up the harmonica and wrote this song! I’ve referred to this for quite a while as my Ant-Gandalf song and tun just ‘Gandalf’ , for obvious reasons. I love the big trumpet that Mark Perry plays in this song. It always brings a corking smile to my face. Just around the corner is enough joy to call a smile from our weary faces.

ORBIT Prone to wonder. All who wander definitely aren’t all lost as a famous writer once said! Essentially this song is about the rare gem of people in our lives, who ground us in order that we can fly.

FIGHT FEAR WITH FAITH  A few friends of mine over the past year have told me that they’ve struggled with anxiety around death and dying, that the thought of this cripples them. Whilst driving back from some shows in Exeter & Plymouth I got listening to a Radio 4 program about ‘Death Cafes’ – Safe spaces where you can go to discuss death, thus breaking all the power of it and the stigma it has. we don’t talk about this stuff half as much as we should in our country. If we can talk about it, we can own it instead of it owning us. Deep? I think so.

THE ART OF INTERRUPTION  Sometimes the most beautiful things we can encounter in this world are when we’re disrupted from what we think is important. A child tugging us to go play pretend shops, that neighbour who needs our help ‘cos they’ve locked themselves out,
