1. He studied music in college
Hoping to purse a career in music, Adam left his hometown in New Hampshire to attend college at The New School in New York City, where he studied in the Jazz and Contemporary Arts Program. Throughout his schooling and career, Adam has studied all sorts of music, including Jazz, Rock, Blues and Soul, although, on The Voice, he’s mostly performed as a country artist.
2. He was in a band before going solo
After college, Adam moved to Baltimore and was part of a fairly successful local band called Old Man Brown. The group performed Soul/Funk music, and Adam stayed in Maryland for ten years.
3. He moved to Nashville to start solo work
Adam moved to Nashville in 2013 to focus on country music, and while he was there, he started doing a lot of songwriting. It was then that he decided that he wanted to make music his career.
4. He’s worked with country artists you’ve heard of
Unfortunately, things didn’t pick up all that quickly for Adam as a solo artist, and instead, he work as a background vocalist and musician for artists like Lee Brice, Keith Anderson, Michelle Wright and more.
5. His girlfriend is also a country singer!
Adam met his girlfriend, Jenny Leigh, when they were both living in Baltimore, and then they moved to Nashville together. She competed on the CW series The Next, and also performed with Adam in Old Man Brown. Now, she’s working on her own solo career, while also supporting her man, of course!
