Return to Profiles
It was in his hometown of Scarborough, a small seaside resort in the north of England, that Adam Gardner began his musical career. He began by playing trumpet in several jazz bands, with whom he embarked upon a number of European tours and played in many prestigious venues, such as the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Festival Hall on London's south bank.

During this period, Adam also played drums for a number of local bands, including Morning Drive (the band who infamously turned down support slots with The Futureheads in favour of a quiet night at the pub) and 13 Hours of Everything, who's internet forays enjoyed widespread critical acclaim and rose to cult status after their disintegration in 2016.

It was following this break-up, a reluctant but necessary spilt with Morning Drive, and relocation to Leicester to study History at university, that Adam began to explore the world of the singer/songwriter. Taking up guitar and exploiting his newly found vocal talents, which he had discovered as a backing vocalist for 13 Hours of Everything, Adam began to write a wide collection of songs about his past, present and future. Drawing on a comprehensive range of influences, from Stephen Fretwell, Damien Rice and The Beatles to Freddie Hubbard, he created his own style, firmly based around his own feelings and deep-seeded love of melody.

Adam now enjoys an ever increasing internet fan base, spreading to all corners of the globe, and has recently received praise and critical acclaim from NME, who describe him as "a singer-songwriting gem, combining earnest lyrics with gorgeous melodies, and never straying into the cheese department."
