He moved to NYC and played guitar and wrote for Second Manassas (the drum machine gospel tent revival). Ended up in Nashville and fronted the country rock flavored The Old Flames and had interest from publishing companies like Americana Music (Larry Shell) and Bro n Sis Adam wrote and recorded "Willingness" a 4 track folk blues indie record (that features back ground vox from Chelle Rose and Elizabeth Cook and was mixed by Steve Mabee Engineer for Legendary Shack Shakers) made in his Belmont Blvd apartment. Adam from 2005-2007 had a band called The Sunday Best that mixed his rock n roll bluegrass sound with pop flavored honky tonk and wistful winsome ballads. While part of the generation of songwriters that includes Rhett Miller, Ryan Adams and Scott Miller he has never met with the wide audience of these writers but often draws comparisons to them. Adam is the author of "Leona Barnett" made famous by Chelle Rose. He co-wrote "Get in Line Caroline" with Greg Parker. His song "Magnolia" appears for 8 seconds on MTV's Made. The Boston band Starhick did mostly covers of Adam Hill songs. His newest album Smoke Trees was recording in Nashville in 2009-10 with members of Th' Legendary Shack Shakers and other fantastic artists in lovely and scenic East Nashville. Salute!
