In the Dawn
Adam is a recording artist currently residing in the Los Angeles area whose life has been split evenly between California and New York. His music career began in the 5th grade when Adam took up the Alto Saxophone. Despite the move to an instrument well known for jazz, he was instead trained in the classical style. Apart from formal training on the Sax, Adam became a multi-instrumentalist by teaching himself to play keyboards, mandolin, guitar, and bass (in that order, no less). To go along with the variety of instruments, Adam also has an eclectic taste in music ranging from Mussourgsky to Metallica and everywhere in between. His love of classical and popular music alike has given him a unique style and sound. By the 7th grade, he started building a fully digital home studio that is still growing today. Being a technology lover, Adam found the marriage of computers and music to be an inspiring one and quickly became adept in this world. Adam began writing original music at 16. At this time, he got involved in everything musical that he could: playing in symphony bands, chamber ensembles, jazz band, and a rock band. At 18, Adam had been an invited soloist at the world renowned Tanglewood Summer Music Program and had composed and performed an original score for a stage production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Adam continued his music education in college during which much of the music from his debut CD In the Dawn was first written. The track 'Breathing Her' was another effort in conjunction with a stage production. Adam's intricate knowledge of synthetic music creation, combined with his experience and fluency in 'real instrument' recording, composition, and theory have allowed Adam to take the forum of new age music and span it's horizons by threading his multi-faceted background through music which ranges from breathtaking to emotionally evocative. Looking to the future, Adam plans to release recordings that range in style from new age to acoustic, folk, and rock, to techno and trance. Adam's music can also be found in the iTunes Music Store as well as many other online outlets.
