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 47 year old singer-songwriter, born and raised in Connecticut. I reside near the great city of New Haven CT with my wife and two daughters. I’ve been playing music, in one form or another, since I was 5 years old. I got my start performing 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 RAWK ever since
I describe my music as singer-songwriter/Americana/folk/rock. That’s 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. In my teenage years, I embraced hair-metal, progressive-rock, and grunge - music I still enjoy to this day. I consider the music I write now to be the most heartfelt and sincere. My biggest influence is Led Zeppelin, with Counting Crows coming in at a close second place. In recent years I’ve come to nearly deify The Beatles and Son Volt. Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell, and Wilco have also been tremendous influences on my work. Lyrically, I like to have something important to say in my songs.
