Adam began performing as a guitarist from the age of 15, appearing regularly at venues around his hometown in the South West of England. It was the classic rock and blues music of the 60s and 70s that inspired him so greatly to get out there and play, and from this young age Adam could frequently be found recreating the music of his guitar heroes on the local scene. Since then Adam has honed his craft, and with well over 1,000 gigs under his belt is now successfully carving out a solo career.
Adam’s debut album ‘Small Town Thinking’ was released on independent East Devon label NEO Music at the turn of 2013/14. With his acoustic guitar providing the foundation Adam and producer Alan West built the album from their Devon studio, calling on Alan’s long time friend and Nashville based producer Thomm Jutz to add a little extra magic in the form of some of Music City’s finest session players. The album steadily gathered critical acclaim throughout 2014 in the music press and received national and international radio play. Adam was featured in Classic Rock’s Blues Magazine as ‘One to Watch’ for 2014, and the rave reviews of the album included a full 5 star rating and ‘Album of the Month’ in Guitar Technique Magazine’s July 2014 edition.
In January of 2017 Adam released his ‘Take Your Time’ EP, presenting his latest material in a stripped back acoustic format that perfectly captures the essence of his acclaimed one-man shows. The EP, performed and produced solely by Adam, features material co-written with his long-standing writing partner Steve Black, as well as a track written with principal songwriter and founder member of Level 42, Boon Gould.
“Adam Sweet’s one of those undiscovered talents that, if there were any justice, would have been swept up by Jools Holland’s researchers long ago.”
