Take some lyrical content of U2, add in some of the melodic development of The Beatles, toss in the dynamic guitar tones of Switchfoot, coat it with the vocal ambition and prowess of Aerosmith, and smash it together with a twist of modern pop sound...and you're introduced to the music of Adam Ilami.

Biography

Occasionally, there comes a time when molds need to be broken, where convention gives way to expansion, and something new and exciting is born. In a world of bubble-gum pop melodies and shallow lyrical routines, one artist is pounding the walls of the box and pushing them completely over. He is a mover and a shaker. He is a force to be reckoned with. His name is Adam Ilami, leader of the rock n’ roll revolution, and he’s beating down your door, demanding to be heard. I suggest you listen.

Born and raised in Arlington, Texas, Adam has been destined for musical creativity since an early age. By 14, he had already established an instrumental foundation having taught himself to play drums, piano, and guitar, and began his journey of self-expression in the world of songwriting. Ilami says, “I find songwriting as a release, or a way to try and make sense of the things in life that just make none at all, be it exceptionally good or bad. That release carries with it an energy and a passion that is unexplainable. I think that's what the listener really takes a hold of. I think that's what really changes lives.” It’s because of this vision that you will find yourself in his songs and singing at the top of your lungs, no matter who you are or where you come from.

As a fresh new face, he is developing into one of the most captivating and dynamic young artists in rock music today. Having diligently studied the likes of such exuberant performers as Elvis Presley, Bono, Steven Tyler, and Mick Jagger, both his confidence and comfort on stage are well beyond his years. This is not a pop tart. This is not a clever marketing scheme. This is a rock n’ roll republic by the people, for the people. This is change, and change is good. This is Adam Ilami.
