Always feeling a passion to express emotion through music, Adam began composing solo piano works by the age of seven. He continued writing music and by age nine released his first solo piano recordings. Adam deepened his interest and learning and received a musical composition and performance degree from Augsburg College in Minneapolis, MN.
His vast understanding of various styles of music and persistent concentration in his study has connected him with countless acts touring throughout the United States and internationally. Most notably, a significant amount of those international tours have taken him to the Middle East to perform for the US Military. Adam’s international exposure continues with an original score written for a theatrical performance of the Biblical nativity. This composition is being performed within the United States and has also been performed in over 18 countries world-wide.
Beyond his touring, Adam has held a position as a Musical Director and Worship Leader for multiple ministries for over 15 years. In 2022, he embraced his passion to instruct, mentor and encourage a new generation of musicians by becoming a High School music educator for a unique weekly student-led assembly.
Adam has made his musical home in the Twin Cities, building extensive studio experience including over a dozen full length albums with original artists and numerous recording sessions. He continues to remain very active in the Twin Cities musical circuit, currently composing, recording and performing to a full calendar of over 250 dates a year. A “typical” week of performances could include full band shows at venues and festivals to curated shows at Senior living facilities, solo or duo live music performances at breweries / restaurants, private corporate celebrations and everything in between. Each week encounters a new variety of musical gatherings and styles for this Minnesota musician but the constant is an unfaltering quality of musicianship.
