In The Tradition... In the tradition of great voices, D.J. Adamson is one of the brightest hopes for the 'New' old traditional vocal styling that finds a home in Jazz, R&B, and neo-classic soul music. Deeply rooted in the African-Latin influence on world music, Adamson's scatting soliloquies, structured and free vocal verse, enticing delivery as well as smooth operation of his vocal chords are his signature. The result has created an artist whose intense study and natural ability has created a musical vision and conveyance that is both timeless and contemporary. Adamson is one of the most exciting and versatile vocalists to break the scene. A composer, musician and lyricist extraordinare, Adamson has the ability to captivate an audience and completely satisfy them. This remarkable vocalist speaks and sings in multiple languages-he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Slavic Language and is fluent in Russian. Adamson has been wowing audiences from all over the Southwest to Chicago's famed Rush street, sharing the stage with artists such as Gerald Albright, Marion Meadows, Pieces of a Dream, Phyllis Hyman and Kim Waters. He recorded for the GRP label with Jazz Great Arturo Sandival and the Brecker Brothers. As a member of the Dallas based sextet, 'Fingerprints', he helped push their 'summertime Music' CD to top twenty status in radio, records and the Gavin report. His voice is definitely a contribution to the resurgence of the ever-popular vocals that made songs legendary in the 40's up to the fade to hip-hop in the new millennium. His voice is a living, breathing testament to what makes singing memorable, legendary and popular-delivering songs that transcend time and category. For all those disheartened patrons of 'Music with Meaning', Adamson reclaims all that is lost. He nurtures lyrics for a new generation of listeners. Catch his musical alchemy on stage and you will never regret returning to the vocals of the greats.
