Biography

Addam Solo smiles at the often asked question of what genre of music he creates." At the beginning, when everything was just a dream, I really did not have a concept of what my music could be classified as." Addam then hesitates a moment, smiles as if enjoying a private joke and continues " Somewhere during the hundreds of rough songs I did, I sort of just combined pop and soul, and started to call it PopSoul. I sort of fought with the idea of being R&B, but there are so many other great R&B artists.I did not want my music to sound like anyone else out there, and I dug into the deepest parts of my soul to find the music that was true to me."

Such a statement tends to spark interest to hear this "unique" music he claims to create, however his debut album gives a wonderful taste of just that. A fresh-faced new comer from Baltimore, Maryland his new album titled "Memoirs" has fans yearning for more. "I poured more than just heart and soul into this album, I forged it from the very burning flames of emotion."

Indeed, an ambitious Solo is determined to have the world hear his music. The emotional and powerful first single "Blood Lies," delves into a dark portion of Solo's most cloudy past. He objects to the pre-conceived notion that blood equals loyalty and trustworthiness. " If blood is thicker than water, why does it run?" Indeed, the hypnotic hook uses a simple cliche,comparing blood to water,and conveys that the difference is little to none. " I have no concept of love or family, its a foreign concept to me."

In actuality, the entire debut album "Memoirs," is an extended story of pain and suffering. There are some uplifting songs as well, but the majority of the full album seems to be an incarnation of pain ripped directly from the young Solo. The second song on his debut album "Just Heartless" seems almost a continuation to Blood Lies, as he seems to be conveying that he can feel no feelings of love or passion for anything. Solo ends his album with the emotional and heartwrenching song titled "Miss You." In this particular song, three separate stories are told about experiencing death, loss and regret. Putting the emotion of this particular song into words, would do it little justice.

Songwriting and music production came naturally to Addam Solo, who produced and wrote his promotional album, and has done the complete production and songwriting for the debut album. "The words to my songs come from a lifetime of pain, and I believe my fans can hear my distress."

Addam Solo lives up to his name. Raised within a household where he felt alone all his life, the torturous environment he grew up in, prevented him from making many friends or indulging in a socially healthy lifestyle. He dubbed himself "Solo" relating to the many years he has never had anyone to call a true friend. Indeed, it is this solitude that fueled his ambition. He explains " When you have been ignored all your life,humiliated, and overlooked, the drive to accomplish something great is almost overwhelming. I don't plan on making music that can only be appreciated for a year, I want to make history.."

The talented vocalist has found his destiny. He joined forces to create the record label "Sololegendary Productions," and plans to stake his claim within the music industry by any means necessary. He found himself increasingly involved in musical events, festivals, and performances. He has created a brand for himself, and plans to market his music internationally. To say that he takes this journey seriously is an understatement.
Will Addam Solo become a legend as his brand name implies? Only time will tell.

-The "Memoirs" album is slated for a Feb 21 2010 release.

"Girl I know, that you're the devil in the angel's clothes, no, no , no no, girl I know, that you're the devil in the angel's clothes,now I know. And now I see, that you were not the right girl for me, I never thought that I could hurt so deep, because you were not the right girl for me"

Bridge:
"There is so much that I'm feeling. I feel like the heart is nothing but a demon. I feel like the flame is what my soul is breathing. I wanna live, but I can't find a reason. If this is love, understand, I don't want no part of it, if this is trust, then it seems like it's a punishment."

Chorus 3:
" You took my heart, you took my life, and then you tore it apart. You took my, you took my hear, you took my everything apart"

Miss You

Written By: Addam Solo

Miss You-Lyrics

Intro:
"Sometimes, you just just wish you could go back, and spin the hands of time"

Verse 1:
"Aint seen each other for a while, it's been far too long, to make excuses up now. I know. I should have been a better friend. Maybe should have visited a little bit more, but I guess its too late for that now, now im standing at your stone. It says on the stone, you was a good man, you lived from 1960 to 1999 and I dont know how you lived, that makes me feel so bad. Maybe I should have been better. Should have been a thicker part of your life. Maybe I should have been integrated. Maybe.

Chorus:
"I'll never know now, will I, I'll never know now, shall I. I'll never know what could have been, I'll never know what, we could have been, I could have never known your name. I wish I never knew your name. It would take away this pain. While I'm standing in this rain."

Verse 2:

"Hello, its mommy and daddy, we never got to know your name. You were only 3 months along, when we took your life away. Back then, we were both in a hard place in our lives. We never really wanted to do it. Please believe us it's no lie. And you never had the honor of a tombstone, so we made one in our minds. It says January till march, 2009, and we bought you a pair of clothes, maybe you'll need it where you go. Maybe your already and angel, maybe.

Chorus: (repeat)

(I miss you, I miss you, I miss you)

Verse 3:

In my childhood you were cold as ice, so I kinda forgot that you were even alive. Those kinds of wounds don't heal easy with the time, you kinda gotta forget and block it out of your mind. But then I heard that you weren't feelin so good. I came as fast as I could. But I just arrived too late. You had already passed away, maybe with the last few years we had. I could have finally had my dad. We could have possibly worked things out. Maybe.

Chorus(Repeat)

Outro(I miss you , I miss you)

"Everybody, if you could feel this song, just put your hands together, wave them in the air. And sing along. Cmon. uh, you feel that? Its feeling real good in here right now. Just let your soul reach out. Everybody misses somebody. Keep it goin, dont lose the feeling right now. You too deep into it. Just keep singing.Yeah, this is one of those, soul searchers right here. All you gotta do, is just keep singing and dont lose the feeling. Right now, your soul is crying out, to whoever you miss. Just say. You ain't even gotta hold a tune you know, just say it, yell it, scream it if you want to. But just keep those hands up. Wherever you at. This is one of those "ooh nannies" in the words of the famous Sam Cooke. Father of soul. one of my biggest influences. Sam Cooke I miss you too. You died too early man. 1960 is far too early. Everybody I miss everybody who died to early, i miss you so much.
