Seth Adam & Guest
SINGER/SONGWRITER SETH ADAM WRITES COMPELLING, GENUINE SONGS WITH HONEST LYRICS. TAKING CUES FROM ARTISTS LIKE COUNTING CROWS, TOM PETTY, AND JASON ISBELL, HE CREATES HIS OWN BRAND OF AMERICANA ROCK & ROLL.


Hello, my name is Seth Adam.

It is unconventional to offer a biography written in the first person. As the cliché goes, rules were meant to be broken...

I am a 44 year old singer-songwriter born and raised in Connecticut. I reside in the great city of New Haven with my wife and daughter. Ive been playing music, in one form or another, since I was 5 years old. I got my start playing in front of audiences when I was in the elementary school chorus. Rock & roll got a hold of me just before my teen years, and I performed my first rock & roll band show at one of those old moose/elk/insert-animal-type halls when I was 14. I've been hooked on the rock & roll ever since.

Here's the part where I tell you what I am currently doing with my career.

2016 was a turning point in my career as I wrote and recorded songs out of a hobbled together, home studio space. Playing all of the instruments, engineering, producing, and everything else-ing on my own resulted in an EP called East Rock. The experience inspired me to continue to do much of the same for the foreseeable future, foregoing using the formal recording studios. In January 2018, I released a single (and video) called Anytown, written in response to the events in Charlottesville VA the summer before. Currently, I am writing and recording songs for a full-length album as well as wrapping up an all-acoustic version of my 2007 release, Where You Come From, celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the original. On February 14th, 2020, I released a single called At Different Ends, written about a year after the Presidential election of 2016. The song reflects on the division and loss of wonder in American society from the perspective of one lonely observer.

Here's the part where I give you some history, drop some names, and tell you about some influences.

I describe my music as singer-songwriter/Americana/folk/rock. Thats a lot of sub genres, but probably the best way to characterize it. My earliest influences were Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Kenny Rogers. My dad used to play their records for me when I was a kid. Though the teenage years were my hair-metal, progressive-rock, and grunge phases, I find the music I write now to be the most heartfelt. My biggest influence is Counting Crows with Led Zeppelin coming in at a close second place. In recent years Ive come to nearly deify The Beatles and Son Volt. Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell, and Wilco have also been tremendous influences on my work.
I love making music. It's how I make a living. It takes a lot of work and it pays off. In 2007, my song Get Out was licensed to Volkswagen for their Sights & Sounds campaign. In 2008, then Fox entertainment columnist in NYC, Roger Friedman, called me the hardest-working, best live act in indie rock. In 2010, I received a nice hometown nod from The New Haven Advocates readers poll, winning the Best Rock Band category. For my 2013 release, Steel Tempered Pride, I had the good fortune of working with David Immerglück, guitarist for Counting Crows, James Maddock, and Camper Van Beethoven. In 2016 I was nominated for Male Performer of the Year for The New England Music Awards, and again in 2017 for Songwriter Of The Year. Through the years, Ive opened for Grammy-winning Steep Canyon Rangers, Grammy-winning Robert Cray, Tonic, Vertical Horizon, The Alternate Routes, Will Hoge, Gary Louris (The Jayhawks), Ken and Drew from Sister Hazel, Kyle Cook (Matchbox Twenty), and Mayer Hawthorne.

I also like dogs. I think they're cool.
See you soon,

-Seth Adam, February 2020
