Album Notes
Poignant, passionate, soul moving, otherworldly. The music of Adam Hurst has been used in independent feature films, documentaries, and art films, and live choreographed ballet among others. He has performed his original music throughout the world.

Mr. Hurst has released four CDs of original music. They have sold thousands of copies. His most recent CD, called "Ruin" is evocative music for cello & piano. "Dwelling" is a collection of thirteen "poems" for cello and guitar. Music from his second album called "Illusions" was used for an original dance piece. In 2007, Oregon Ballet Theatre's James Canfield choreographed a 20min ballet to a Hurst original composition which Hurst performed live at the premiere to a sold out crowd.

Amy Buchheit

Adam is well worth seeing, and his CD is well worth buying!


along with being a phenominal cello player, u have mastered the arabian style of guitar. Adam Hurst is an icon and deserves to be globally recognized


Tender, poignant and ultimately powerful. It touches one's soul in a way that is delicately personal and universal at the same time.

Bob Koski

like Adam's previous cd, this is one that I can put my player on 'repeat' and just let it go again and again...

Pauline Tait

I love your sound (am sure I have a lot of good company)... Its great music to do everything by: read, write, yoga, meditate, walk, dance, bathe...

mature and evocative
Adam's music is always profound. The addition of the guitar (reminiscent of a mediterranean lute sound) to the cello and drone adds a new dimension that attests to his growth as an artist.


Beautiful and provacative....
