It has been said that you are far more likely to find Adam Wedd & The Independents busking to fans on the street than retreating to their dressing room to drink their way through the rider. This desire to maintain a unique relationship between their music and their fans is characterised by their distinctive fusion of meaningful & thought-provoking lyrics with catchy pop melodies.

Adam’s unique approach to writing songs comes as a result of several years of honing his craft as a solo singer-songwriter. His lyrics display a well-developed understanding of the human condition, often appearing under the guise of childish optimism and naivety. After several years of success performing as a solo artist, with the high point being the use of his music in a short film premiered at the Covent Garden Odeon, it was time to establish a full-band line-up to take the project to the next level, and born of this was Adam Wedd & The Independents. Never detracting from the original arrangements written for voice and acoustic guitar, the full-band sound naturally suited the tracks, doing nothing but complementing the original musical ideas.

Since forming, the band have been in the studio creating new material, layering the sounds of a diverse range of instruments including the cello, mandolin & ukelele, over the guitar driven 4-piece dynamic.

All the while, the project is gaining momentum with an increasing tally of headline slots, press coverage & radio airplay, and with the eager anticipation of their debut single release in June and the follow-up later in the summer, Adam Wedd & The Independents are going to be one to watch out for over the coming months.

“Skippingly good folk inflected pop with a romantic heart and a jauntily tipped hat.”

“The multilayed nature of their music is something fresh and unique… Safe Place, The Differences We Display & Everything Is Not OK are stand outs and give you the slightest glimpse into how big these guys are going to get.”

“The sound of the Summer.” – Milly Luxford, Spirit FM

“Skipping along like someone who’s just passed their driving test, [The Differences We Display] has all the happy tickles of The Kooks or Noah and the Whale. But without the annoying tweeness. Complete with the best violin bits since The Bluebells’ “Young At Heart.”” –

“Cracked, emotional, wistful songs that will keep you warm of an evening.””
- Gill Mills, Best of MySpace BBC

” …you couldn’t help but feel there was more than just a shade of poet about him.”
- Dominic Mills, Surface Unsigned Festival

“….Every hook laden song leaves you recollecting the joys of your early childhood when one would jump in puddles and kick through piles of leaves.”
- Luke Das
