Adam\'s passion for music added to the creative musical atmosphere at Florida State as he pursued his own unique and soulful sound. \'I try to find a good balance between jazz and R&B, the two main influences on my playing....and will continue to fuse the two in creating my own sound. My music is a special part of me...I am delighted and honored to share it with anyone who has ever had a love for music.\'
