His on-stage presence engages audiences around the globe and he has a strong following of loyal fans who are prepared to travel to hear him. Put simply, his audiences come to hear something about themselves. After two full studio albums in 5 years, touring in Australia and Canada where he received the 2012 APCMA International Indigenous Artist of the Year plus a relentless pursuit of writing and honing his craft, Adam is on his way to releasing a third studio album June 2014. This next body of music work features strong, powerful, vibrant and fresh music that explores the genre of the Alt-country/Americana movement paying homage to influencers
