Adam Web = optimistic acousitfunk. Though living in Philadelphia, PA, his career began about 10,000 miles across the world in Australia. It was here, while studying abroad, that Adam began writing of his inspiring travels and experiences. The music that emerged was shaped with percussive guitar grooves, soulful vocals, and spiritually conscious sentiment. With his rootsy approach he has drawn comparisons to contemporary singer/songwriters as expressed by Julie Schreiber of the PA Music Scene when she writes "Combine the vocals, songwriting style and acoustic guitar technique of Jason Mraz, add in the vibes of Jack Johnson and Donavon Frankenreiter and then sprinkle it all with positive thinking and you’ve got yourself the perfect conditions for [ Adam's album] “Pendulum”." This sound has made its way across the U.S into over 100 college radio stations and 2 major TV networks, as his single “Standstill” was used in an episode of MTV’s “The Real World Las Vegas (2011)” and his song “Life is My Play” was used on Oxygen’s “The Bad Girls Club (2011)”. Through multiple tours, Adam has performed in 14 states across the country including such festivals as South by Southwest (Austin, TX) and Musikfest (Bethlehem, PA). He has performed at such prominent venues as the Hard Rock Café in Nashville, TN and Milkboy Philly and The Tin Angel in Philadelphia, PA.
Adam’s career took shape “down under” while studying abroad in Melbourne, Australia. It was during this time of discovery that he began writing about love, peace, and a search for heightened awareness. Drawing inspiration from both uplifting literature and an eclectic mix of musical influences, Web began creating a sound all his own. After receiving an overwhelmingly positive response at many college and pub performances, he returned to the States knowing that music would be his purpose and career. Upon returning to Philadelphia, he began crafting his live show which is now known for its emotional lift and his own brand of “rapping melodically”. With his laid back demeanor and a peaceful sense of humor, he alleviates any tension in the room and breaks the barrier between performer and listener.
Web’s second and current studio album “Pendulum” is a balancing act of extremes to find the middle. Rosemarie Ashley of Positive Music Association writes "Pendulum” by Adam Web is an entertaining journey of the soul through challenges and celebration with engaging lyrics, contagious choruses and excellent production." The highest peak of the album is “I’m on Top of It” which boasts an upbeat lyrical flow and a driving funk rift. The more mild and somber sentiment in the album is found in the honestly written “Swollen and Bruised”. He strikes a middle ground by incorporating some swinging pop tunes in “You Are Everything”, a catchy Jackson 5’ish throwback, and “Every Time You”, an acoustic groove with a punchy lift. Tying the whole album together is his undercurrent of positivity and hope, “you’ve been blinded by the dark, so step out of that cave and take off those shades, you are the light you now see.” Lyrically he locates a median between the human experience and the ethereal plane as he expresses, “The lyrics touch on our everyday personal emotions while keeping a pulse on the bigger picture...the broader perspective of who and what we are and of what we’re all capable of becoming.”
Currently, Adam is working on a number of recording projects including a lullaby album which is co written with his wife Amanda as well as a solo acoustic ep. Adam was also selected as a Finalist in The 2015 Philadelphia Songwriters Project annual songwriting competition for his song "Beautiful World."
