Biography

When you witness Adam Katz on stage, you dont simply hear him; you become engaged and involved; and when youre talking about his melodic fusion of pop, R&B and hip-hop, its something altogether more authentic than the manufactured hits weve come to expect from the charts. Adam Katz is the real deal.

Katz grassroots success is evident in his already impressive history on stage, both as a solo artist as well as lead vocalist for 'The Next Step' collective. Hes a regular at Sydney hotspots like The Basement, The Beresford and The IVY, has performed several times at the seminal Splendour in the Grass Festival, and on the other end of the spectrum, supported the likes of R&B sensation Lloyd, as well as Akon, Pitbull and Kelly Rowland on the urban Supafest lineup. 

The reason for Katz bubbling success is clear his engaging live charisma, where hes just as comfortable fronting his 8-piece band, delivering a smooth pop melody or throwing down an improvised rap or freestyle. Hes celebrated for being able to break away from his routine at any moment, riffing spontaneously on whats going on around him in the crowd.

However, its the standard of the songs that will take Katz to the next level. His anthems like Stars and Adore Ya are propelled into the pop stratosphere by his heartfelt melodies, with an emphasis on the sweet, the passionate and the catchy. Channeling the integrity and honesty of timeless artists like Michael Jackson; theyre full of stories about dreams, life, love and dragons.

In June 2013, Katz released his debut single Stars through Central Station Records/Universal Music, which achieved incredible success with national rotation on 2dayFM, Nova, and MTV. Adam also completed an 8 date, East Coast tour of the single, to very favourable reviews.

Katz recently returned from a writing and promotional trip to the UK, where he recorded with 'Stars' producer CUTMORE (Maroon 5, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey), Esmee Denters (Justin Timberlake), The White N3RD (Jessie J, Loick Essien) and many other revered writers, as well as performing shows at several major bars and clubs all around the UK.

Capping off an already thrilling year, in November Katz received the MusicOz Award for Pop Artist of the Year, and also toured nationally with The Jeans for Genes Charity, performing free concerts as a prize for the most creative fundraising schools in Australia.

He is currently readying his debut album, but in the meantime, hes extending an invite to come and check out one of his regular Sydney gigs. Katz says, "If you come and see me perform, I promise to dedicate an entire minute to freestyle about it!"

FIREFLY

VERSE 1
World,
Is the funniest place,
And the cutest face,
That i've ever seen,
And Girl,
Come run away,
With no more to say,
Just be,

PRECHORUS
Girl take my hand,
I'll be your man,
I know you want to be (yeah)

CHORUS
So be the firefly that looks above
Be the girl you know i'm thinking of
Be the one with who i fell in love (Over and Over)
Be one with me and girl we can
Fly away to loverland
Just be
Be with me

VERSE 2
I was thinking
That maybe we could escape the midday traffic
Coz i don't know if we can do this right
I've seen a place where we can be
With each other eternally
Be Free
Be me

PRECHORUS
Girl take my hand,
I'll be your man,
I know you want to be (yeah)

CHORUS
Be the firefly that looks above
Be the girl you know i'm thinking of

Be one with me and girl we can
Fly away to loverland
Just be
Be with me

BRIDGE
I don't even know
Have you ever felt
For me like more
Than i have felt myself
Is this a thing that i
Have made up in my mind
Did this mean nothing?
Did it hurt when we said goodbye?

CHORUS
Be the firefly that looks above
Be the girl you know i'm thinking of
Be the one with who i fell in love (Over and Over)
Be one with me and girl we can
Fly away to loverland
Just be
Be with me

CHORUS
So be the firefly that looks above
Be the girl you know i'm thinking of
Be the one with who i fell in love (Over and Over)
Be one with me and girl we can
Fly away to loverland

And my heart has not been tested,
Reminding,
Myself, that every cloud has silver,
Lining,

Ladadadadada

CHORUS
They say that nobody makes it, why should you make it, why should it be you,
So you say, someone's gotta make it, i think i can make it, why can't it be you,

If you wanna be anything, trust your heart and let this dream come true

Hook
Na na na na na (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
Na na na na na (Mmm, Oh yeah)

Verse 1
Can you tell me what it feels like
When you can’t let go
Hanging on to all the things that
You just can’t control
It’s driving me crazy, trying to make it into something more

Pre-chorus
Maybe this is just a phase (woo)
But I don’t think you’ll ever change

Chorus
So cut me up, keep shutting me down
Do your thing, and leave me now
I’ll be right here waiting for ya
When the world’s got nothing for ya

It wasn’t bout us, but it is now
You’ll always be you, I’ve worked you out
But I’m handing my heart over
Coz I adore ya

Hook
Na na na na na (na na na na na)
Na na na na na (wooooo)
Na na na na na
Ooh no yeah

Verse 2
Stick around a little longer
Before you close that door
And if you can’t be any stronger
(Stop) Well that’s what I’m here for
You tell me I’m crazy, that nothing is changing,
But I just don’t know

Prechorus
Girl I know this aint a phase (Yeah)
And I know you’ll never change

Chorus
So cut me up, keep shutting me down
Do your thing, and leave me now
I’ll be right here waiting for ya (said I’ll be waitin for ya)
When the world’s got nothing for ya (when it’s got nothing for ya)

It wasn’t bout us, but it is now
You’ll always be you, I’ve worked you out
But I’m handing my heart over
Coz I adore ya- a-a

Na na na na na (Na na na)

Bridge
Eventually the rain that’s getting in your way,
Will be the same rain,
That wipes the tears from your face,
And I’ll still be, here on my knees, I’ll be praying for the day,
That you don’t feel, this pain, again________

Chorus
So cut me up, keep shutting me down
Do your thing, and leave me now
I’ll be right here waiting for ya (said I’ll be waitin for ya)
When the world’s got nothing for ya (when it’s got nothing for ya)

It wasn’t bout us, but it is now
You’ll always be you, I’ve worked you out (Girl you know it)
But I’m handing my heart over
Coz I adore ya- a-a

Hook
Na na na na na (you know that I adore you now)
Na na na na na (you know I want to break this down)

You know I gotta be with you,
Nothing can change me and you babe (na na na na na)
