Prior to this exposure, Adam was already attracting huge crowds at venues across NSW . His awards as Best Male Vocalist in both the Australasian Blues Music Awards and the Bluestar Awards, combined with his
selection as Official Ambassador for the Goulburn Blues Music Festival in 2008 plus Blues and Roots Song of The Year at the Newcastle ABC Music Awards are testimony to his outstanding talent as guitarist and
vocalist as well as his ability to engage a crowd and keep them coming back for more. Add to that his
endorsement by both Fender Australia and Lee Oskar Harmonicas and you can understand why the crowds love his performances!

Adam’s tours have included performances at many festivals throughout Australia including Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival, NSW, Darling Harbour Jazz Festival NSW, (which included interviews and a live cross with Adam’s band on Channel 7) Bridgetown Blues Festival WA, Broadbeach Blues Festival QLD and the Australian Blues Festival NSW.
