Adam began playing the violin at age five and picked up the guitar at nine. Over the years he has added the Piano, Clarinet, Oud, Flute and Cajon to his arsenal, largely teaching himself each time. However, it was an introduction to the Double-Bass at age 16 that truly changed his life, when he instantly fell in love with the instrument’s rich sound. Drawing inspiration from heroes as diverse as Bach, Sting, Bobby McFerrin and Chick Corea, Adam made a clear decision to make his compositions current – no matter the tool used. He has consciously added new colors to his palette, incorporating elements of Jazz, Latin and Mediterranean music into his playing. Adam will be perform at Jazz Dock on 20 October.
