Adam Shannon

Adam currently resides in a basement, somewhere on the Gold Coast of Australia.

He combines acoustic guitar ‘centric tunes with road worn and lived in storytelling, all deeply blended, serving melancholically traditional, Country Roots music.

Adam grew up living a nomadic lifestyle, deeply influenced by the multitude of music playing in the background. Guitar based singer/songwriters, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and James Taylor filled his young days on the road along with instrumental work by Django Rienhardt, BB King, John Lee Hooker, Chet Atkins, Mark Knoffler and Jerry Reed

His music is unapologetically poetic, deep music with painstakingly written lyrics. The evocative melodies serve as the vessel to transport his lyrics.

It’s long been held, that a Singer/Songwriter cannot write authentically untill they’ve done some living. Hard travelling leads to good gritty tales. Adam draws heavily on his past experiences of living on the fringe, providing his audience with the real deal. When he writes about storms, it’s derived from living through them.
