Biography

Is he Country, Rock, Pop, Blues or all of the above? Well, let’s leave that for you to decide!

Adam Toms grew up in a country town in Victoria, Australia where he spent his teen years playing in cover bands and at solo acoustic gigs - this honed his skills as a guitar player and vocalist but left him with a desire to write and sing his own material and make a move to Melbourne.

Not long after making the move he teamed up with Aria award winning producer / engineer Doug Roberts - best known for his work with artists such as The Badloves, Chocolate Starfish & Boom Crash Opera, Doug introduced Adam to Peter Farnan (ex Boom Crash Opera) which proved to be a successful colaboration. The pair wrote and recorded many songs together spreading across many genres.

However for Adam something was missing. He had always had many people suggest that his music leant in a more 'country rock/pop' vibe. Over the Easter of 2008 Adam had what he calls a 'Light bulb moment'. "I was listening over my old demo's one day and realised I have a bunch of material which was never written with the intent of a country rock/pop vibe but it's all as clear as day to me now. This is what I need to be doing. It all makes sense!"

Adam somehow mixes his love for artists like Keith Urban, Ben HArper, Eric Clapton, Brooks & Dunn and Ryan Adams to create his own sound.

So with the direction finaly decided Adam teamed up with Doug Roberts again and a great mix of muso's to record his first country rock project. Out of all the tracks recorded, 4 were chosen for his EP with the lead single, '6 Months Of Lovin You' getting great exposure in the Australian market. His follow up single, 'Sugar Lips' released laste 2009 did even better with it getting fantastic radio support and great rotation with the film clip.

In March 2010 Adam recorded more material with Award Winning producer Matt Fell at his Sydney studios for his upcoming album our mid 2010. Already the proposed singles are getting industry hype.

It's only a matter of time before Adam Toms breaks out! Be ready!

Lyrics

Music Will Never Rest

Written By: Adam Toms

Lying on this bed I realize something’s changed
Whistling all the songs that seemed to change our days
It’s rarer than ever we’ll hear a tune
That sticks around as long as hit songs used to do.
Think about Don McLean, and his American Pie
What about the boys in Queen, Or Wings, Live & Let Die
Kenny and his Gambling man
The Weight from The Band
The Eagles passed the test now their music will never rest
It’ll never rest.
Nothing form these current years ever feels good
Sometimes remakes don’t feel good
But every now and then that old familiar sound
Oh and something picks us up and turns our blues around
Think about the Rolling Stones, and their Jumping Jack Flash
Heavens Door Dillan owns, The Who’s Pinball smash
Elvis and his Blue Suede Shoes, The Doors Roadhouse Blues
The Beatles passed the test now their music will never rest
It’ll never rest
Think about Don McLean, and his American Pie
What about the boys in Queen, Or Wings, Live & Let Die
Elvis and his Blue Suede Shoes, The Doors Roadhouse Blues
Joplin passed the test now her music will never rest
Led Zepplin passed the test now their music will never rest
Credence passed the test now their music will never rest
