About John

Singer/Songwriter from Cardiff
Singing guitarist

Verified profile

If you're not already a fan of John Adams, then imagine a mix of Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and James Morrison with a reach in his tone to match James Blunt and James Bay and you've got it!! Further imagine this complemented by a team of experienced and talented musicians; performing all the most popular songs from the last 50 years with the ability to either relax you into a day dream or get you all worked up in a partying frenzy. Does this sound like the live music you're after????? With all this in mind, there's no wonder John and his band are acheiving more and more success. Last year alone they performed 182 gigs including playing before Take That, T'pau, Russel Kane, Status Quo, UB40 Katherine Jenkins, Lemar and many more. Despite the progression in John's activities, he still sticks to his busking roots and is often seen in different cities drawing quite a crowd. The experience of performing to strangers really shows. His interaction with the audience and his ability to get them involved is his biggest strength. There really is no gig too big or too small, too wild or too intimate.

Just a quick email to say thank you to John and the band for their amazing work on Friday at our wedding. They surpassed our already high expectations and everyone was commenting on just how amazing their sets were. John, being the natural showman that he is, was able to take it from super romantic in the ceremony to an upbeat party atmosphere in the evening - complete with call-and-repeat songs to get the crowd involved. We really do appreciate how amazing he made our special songs feel - having the band there really did make the day/night feel that bit more special. Thank you also to yourself for making it all happen! Best of luck to John on his onward career and we really hope to hear him on the radio soon! Thanks! Jet & Amy
