Biography

Arthur Adam is the most versatile singer-songwriter of the Netherlands. He creates übermelodical, intriguing, inspiring songs in various genres. He has a beautiful voice with a tremendous range and is not afraid to use it. His shows are known for being intense, a bit strange, and always unforgettable. Think Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, Joni Mitchell, Ella Fitzgerald.

In September 2007, Arthur Adam participated in the renowned In A Cabin With project, and a gorgeous album was created in Sweden as a result. He wrote part of the music on the spot, and played all the instruments himself. The record became Album of the Week at VPRO’s 3voor12, and he earned the Artist of the Week title on MySpace. The tracks are intense and slightly experimental.

In April 2010 Arthur Adam released the album "Awake" on the Dutch indie label Jammm, that also hosted Kyteman and C-mon&Kypski. This beautiful album featured some actual pop songs and got him on national television (DWDD, Nederpopshow).

In the past, Arthur was active as guitarist/bass guitar player/pianist/backing vocalist with Marike Jager, Joep Pelt, Mist and White Broncos.

His new album "Pulse" will be released in January 2012.
