Hailing from a small town in rural Pennsylvania, Adam fell in love with music at a young age. Listening to his father's LPs of The Beatles, Pink Ffloyd, and Handel's Messiah certainly had an inspiring influence on him to take up music as a career, which he decided to do at the age of nine. After graduating high school, Adam decided to go to University to be classically trained. After a few years of trying to find a place where he fit in, he finally settled on New York City and received his degree in Classical Clarinet from NYU. He is currently playing as a side-man with singer-songwriters, fronting his own jazz combo, and is still playing the occasional classical gig.
