Adam is from Glasgow, Scotland which is the home of where his music talents began. Starting as a street busker Adam got his first taste of street performing and carried around the world. His talent has been heard from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Bahrain formula one, Muscat International Festival and to Dubai’s Marina Music Festival. He was lucky enough to perform in the same venue as Sting, Olly Murrs and Catherine Jenkins at the Henley Festival in 2011.

Adam is not your everyday acoustic player, using a technique called “Lap Tapping”; he rests the guitar on his lap and powerfully taps the frets and strings to create a captivating cacophony. Learning this style came to him after a small accident which fractured one of Adam’s fingers made it difficult to play the guitar as normal. Learning this new style took the street out of the weaker finger but also developed his preference to play this way.

To the day Adam has been glued to this way of playing which has given him a unique and recognisable sound that can be heard where his music takes him.
