Keep reading to learn more about Adam!
Adam’s songwriting is a Disney-first: “There’s a write-up that pretty much says that I’m the only Disney kid to write in any movie so that was awesome.”
His first fans were his elementary-school classmates: “My fourth-grade talent show, I did this rap in front of the whole school. My D.A.R.E. essay was a rap.”
His role as Tom Sawyer in the school play lead to his big-break: “There were people there from local agencies and I got picked up by a local agency and I started doing local gigs and then I got an offer from an agent in California. So I went out there and met him and I just been climbing up the ladder.”
He’s inspired by the classics: “I like the Rolling Stones, all of their albums, I like Ziggy Stardust. As far as rap, I’m an old school guy like Big L, Biggie Smalls.”
He’s a bookworm: “I read every night before bed. I’m a big history guy so I don’t really have a lot of go-to books, I kind of read and move on.”
He wants to be a college boy: “I would like to go to a real college instead of going online. I would like to go to New York, probably.”
