Feeling a bit camera shy


Adam Richman celebrated his 19th birthday with the completion of his debut, full-length CD, “Two.” The ambitious, young songwriter created the recordings in his dorm room over long nights when his roommates wouldn't stumble home until the sun came up. This is an absolute surprise to fans who can find no disparity in the quality of the recordings from those made in major studios. Equally surprising is the quality of songwriting - lyrically
and melodically - manifested in this coming-of-age anthology. "Two” is a snapshot of a growing artist who is already being noticed as a player in the next generation of great, performing songwriters.

Quite simply, it’s music for listeners in their youth, by a youthful artist. Adam knew his days of university life were numbered the second he felt the burn to break away. Despite the value of the education he knew he was setting aside, Adam courageously ventured into a new world of professional artistry, with the hope of creating a lifelong success from self-expression.

From his new independence rose emotionally driven songs devoted to human relationships. The tunes are more intricate than typical, 4-chord power pop. Adam’s commitment to the balance of instrumental technique, instant melodic inculcation and poetic, lyrical honesty has produced countless songs that listeners quickly find themselves humming to, and identifying with all too closely.

Adam stepped forth from a cloud of uncertainty as he left behind a comfortable lifestyle, and established himself as a regular in the
Washington, DC and Northern, VA music scene. That was in 2001. Since then Adam has taken the college market by storm, as well as frequenting some of the nation's best listening rooms and small clubs with over 175 total bookings (at time of publishing). Soon he was playing amongst seasoned local veterans and doors began to open for larger and louder shows. Adam found himself opening for crowds of thousands of concertgoers, and sharing the stage with acts such as The Roots, Good Charlotte, Matt Nathanson, Pete Francis (of Dispatch), Antigone Rising, Ari Hest, Bree Sharp, Mer, Pepper's Ghost and Redman.

Drawing comparisons ranging from Duncan Sheik to Dashboard Confessional, Adam cites the influence of songwriters like Toad the Wet Sprocket, Adam Duritz (of Counting Crows), Guster, and guitar players like Dave Matthews and Ani DiFranco.

Adam Richman spends most of his days on the road. For now, he enjoys the rush of a small stage, and reliving the experiences, usually jokingly, that inspire his songwriting with audiences who can easily identify and readily
enjoy his comfortable blend of catchy melody, personal lyrics and intricate acoustic design.
