The sound Brandon has made his own is certain to gain interest from across the world. The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical influences exposing him to a wealth of music. He grew up listening to Hank Sr., Roy Acuff, Bill Monroe and Tony Rice. His first foray into learning an instrument himself came when he started to play the guitar at the age of eight when his grandfather Robert Adams put his old Martin D-28 in his grandson’s hands saying, “Learn G,C and D. You’re playing in church this weekend.” After learning the chords and putting many grueling hours into his practice, he got his hungry hands on Tony Rice’s “Church Street Blues” album. This was the start of Brandon’s career. To Brandon, it was not just playing the guitar, it was the song, the words, the vocal. His musical journey began while trying to learn Tony Rice’s works who had a profound influence on the direction his musical journey would take. Brandon started hanging around jam sessions demanding other musicians to teach him things he did not already know. He entered his first guitar contest at the age of sixteen at “The Vidalia.” Coming in sixth place, he referred to that day as an eye opening day. Born in Charlestown West Virginia, Brandon spent his school week there but his weekends, holidays and summer breaks were spent working on a farm in Webbville Kentucky where he developed his musical tastes and interests. After realizing that making music was his main goal, he began to venture into various venues listening to Eric Clapton’s “Unplugged” album. He tuned into Vince Gill New Grass Revival, and gained much respect for Alison Krauss. He also sparked an interest in Larry Spark’s “John Deer Tractor” album. One of his biggest inspirations as an entertainer was Jerry Reed while Tim O’Brien’s album “Odd Mann Out” made a huge impact on Brandon’s life. In Brandon’s words; “From that point on I knew I wanted to play and sing songs like Tony, but I wanted to write like Tim.” At the age of seventeen, Brandon began to showcase his talents after winning a local talent contest which catapulted a milestone allowing him to perform at the Ryman Auditorium. Brandon knew this was where he wanted to be. After High school and a job hanging dry wall, Brandon joined the Army giving four years of his life to serve his country. Afterwards, he came home and went to school for a while. His love for the guitar and his music won him yet another local contest. His talent with a variety of genre’s only added to his appeal and his unique sound started to find an appreciative audience while working and travelling with Don Rigsby playing in venues in Ireland and Canada. As his musical ambition began to grow, he got to meet and share the stage with such heroes as JD Crowe and Scott Vestal. And as if that wasn’t enough, Brandon took it upon himself to venture out on his own where he began to work on his first album, “Hardest Kind Of Memories.” From this album he wrote nine out of the eleven songs. He sang lead and did the entire guitar work as he produced his own album which was featured in the March/April issues of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. The song “Hardest Kind Of Memories” was voted a top ten hit for new country artists by Outstage. Later, he was on the IBMA award winning album “Celebration of Life” for Skaggs Family Records. Finally, after honing his unique sound over recent years, his goal is to take his music around the world to every corner that will listen until he can play no more. The satisfaction he gets from indulging in his passion has certainly reflected through his music while sharing the stage with Scott Vestal, JD Crowe, Randy Kohrs, Don Rigsby, Art Stamper, Ernie Thacker, Dave Evans and many more. He’s recorded with Tony Rice, Scott Vestal, Jesse Cobb, Randy Kohrs, Don Rigsby, Bo Isaac and Luke Bulla. With a rhythmic undercurrent that bears testament to his unique playing, this artist is punctuated with passion to deliver what the heart wants to convey. Ronny Cox, Actor, Director, Singer and Songwriter said; “Songwriting from the heart and masterful playing.” Glenn Elvig, Artist, Songwriter, and Musician said, “When I first heard Brandon Adam’s music, it knocked me out! Clean, solid and honest! As a musician, I am in awe of Brandon’s talent. As a show promoter, I look forward to getting Brandon up to Minnesota to do a show! Top shelf music, staying power and timeless! Dan Miller Editor, Publisher of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine wrote in the March/April issue, “Brandon is a triple threat.” Grace Muldoon DJ for Worldwide Bluegrass concurred, “Brandon Adam’s music is hot!”
