Ability to attach emotion to his work.
Adams kicked off his solo efforts in 1999, embarking upon an instrumental rock career. But by 2002, he had joined forces with John and Geoff Whitbread, described by Adams as “two brothers with phenomenal talent.” John’s vocal technique and Geoff’s drumming skills meshed marvelously with Adams’ guitar playing. These musicians, perfectly in sync with each other, found themselves moving in a more traditional “song-based” direction.
“I still write both instrumental and vocal pieces,” says Adams.
His solo career is still going strong; he has three singers and a number of instrumentalists at his disposal for recording and for live shows. The music continues to be guitar-based with a focus on guitar virtuosity.
Adams’ previous albums include “Back to Jerusalem,” “One Solitary Chair,” “In Through the Soundhole,” “On the Rock,” “Streams from Bethel,” “Out of the Silence,” “Variations on a Theme,” “Requiem for a Mountain,” “House of Dreams,” “So Far,” “Sozo” and “I Was an Island.”
Adams has appeared on the main stage at the H3 festival three years in a row and several of his songs have achieved number one status on a number of web sites, including PeopleSound.com and Amazon.com. He is slated to appear on “Britain’s Got Talent,” a national television program.
But music isn’t the only product of Adams’ hard work. “One thing my solo career has produced is my partner and two children,” he says. “You never know where the music is going to take you. He is currently working with A&R Select, the world’s leading independent artist development firm, based out of Los Angeles, CA. More information is available by visiting www.sozocd.com
