Adam Toms once had an opening line on his bio that read ‘Is he Country, Rock, Pop, Blues or all of the above? Let’s leave that for you to decide’.
Well a few years later and Tomsy declares he is definitely more ‘country rock’ than his earlier years but he still doesn’t mind mixing it up here and there.
Since 2009 he has released an EP, along with two albums both produced by Golden Guitar producer of the Year, Matt Fell. With 6 film clips and 8 singles to radio and even a reality documentary about his 9 month tour around Australia with wife and two young boys in tow, Adam’s fan base is growing rapidly every day.
With a swag of award and competition credits to his name and an intense gigging schedule Adam believes strongly in the theory of ‘taking his music to the people’ rather than sitting back and waiting for it to happen.
In 2012 he was selected to play full band shows at the Urban CMF and Mud Bulls & Music along with solo acoustic sets at the Gympie Muster. Early 2013 already has him performing at 3 Victorian festivals – Red Hill, Whittlesea & Kilmore CMFs.
Adam somehow mixes his love for artists like Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn, Eric Clapton, Ryan Adams and Billy Thorpe to create his own sound.
His latest album release ‘Rich Man’ (Out 27 Feb) has a mix of country rock, blues, soul & rock all wrapped up in a country music blanket. With songs co-written with Drew McAlister, Troy Kemp & Felicity Urquhart solo writes and a couple of sourced tracks it’s a cocktail for an album with no ‘fillers’. The first single ‘Rowdy Together’ (Toms/Kemp) was included in 3 x ABC Music compilation CDs including the ‘Hit Country 2013’ release.
