"With its breezy, minimal, electronic feel, the new tune All I Got is You from Dangermaker's Adam Brookes is your perfect summer soundtrack." -


"San Francisco’s Adam Brookes has never been an artist easily pigeonholed, he’s increasingly on quests to expand his range. His first solo single, All I Go is You, is less vast Arctic Monkeys type rock and more akin to airy Spandau Ballet synth-pop (with his signature Northern California flair of course)." -


"Adam Brookes' solo project is a deviation from (Dangermaker's) dark pop sound. The minimal use of guitar paired with electronic production creates a chill and light attitude, suitable for summertime vibes." -


"The 80’s called — and Adam Brookes is today’s answer for making awesome, electro-pop tracks. Thank God." -



The new solo project from Dangermaker's prolific frontman, Adam Brookes, may come as a surprise to fans of his previous work. 

Born in Los Angeles, California, Brookes began seriously writing and recording music in San Francisco around 1999 with a collection of cheap instruments and a four-track Tascam cassette recorder in the closet of his creaky old apartment. After several short-lived projects he formed indie pop band Dangermaker, and music quickly went from pastime to obsession as he dealt with the sudden death of his father during the first week of tracking their debut album. The experience plunged him further into his art with a sense of urgency, eventually emerging with a euphoric sound that defines Dangermaker's releases on Breakup Records. 

His new solo work brings a more summery, minimal, electronic feel than we’ve heard from the songwriter before. Lyrically reflecting on changing times and whether or not he has something to lose now, he finds himself questioning and grappling with what exactly that might be. Initial experiments with electronic production recently led to commissioned compositions for The North Face and Brookes realized that certain life-long musical influences had previously been neglected. Rather than force-fitting those ideas into an existing box, this new project is left free to land where it may, fusing electronic and hip-hop influences just as much as rock, pop, R&B or anything else. The result is transformative, featuring live electronic production, a rotating cast of supporting live musicians, and collaborations with SF Bay Area MCs Enon Gaines of Unlikely Heroes, Najee Amaranth & Compa Cut. Brookes has appeared at Bottlerock Napa and Live 105’s BFD Music Festivals among others like SXSW & CMJ nationally, and his music heard on radio, television & film, ahead of his 2020 solo LP release.
