Adam first picked up a guitar aged seven but until his early teens his interest was barely smouldering as a brief foray into classical guitar failed to provide the spark of inspiration he needed. Things began to change when at thirteen he started private tuition with Adrian John Loveridge, a veteran of the 1980’s Californian music scene who had just moved back to his hometown of Lyme Regis, Dorset. Guitar lessons suddenly got a lot cooler with tales of ‘life on the road’ in a far-off land, told in an American accent and Adrian’s gold record gleaming on the wall. The breakthrough came when Adam’s new mentor took him to see blues rock band The Hamsters at Lyme’s Marine Theatre. Adam left his first ever gig with Jimi Hendrix riffs ringing in his ears and by age fifteen he was gigging regularly on the local circuit recreating the music of his newfound guitar heroes. 

 

Since those early days of playing in numerous bands he has honed his craft and found his voice, and with well over 1,500 gigs under his belt is successfully carving out a solo career. 

His acclaimed debut album ‘Small Town Thinking’, recorded both in Devon and Nashville, was released at the start of 2014. The album steadily gathered praise with Adam’s “timeless” gift earning him rave reviews including a full 5-star rating and ‘Album of the Month’ award in Guitar Techniques Magazine
