Adam Wakefield is a singer-songwriter who
has secured his place in Nashville, TN, but is far from the typical
artist one may expect to find in the Country Music Capital of the World.
Growing up in New Hampshire, Adam didn’t
intend to become an artist. In fact, his original goal was to become a
musician. He began to play piano when he was younger and in search of a
hobby, especially one at which he believed he could excel. Adam’s
intuitions were correct, and he continued to play piano until it was
time to make a musical choice and hone in on a certain genre as a
pianist. Rather than choosing the predictable classical route, the man
who has become celebrated for his uniqueness in his artistry opted for
The desire to continue his piano-playing
in the jazz circuit lasted about one year into college, and that was
when Adam realized he wanted to make a larger contribution to music than
the one he was destined to at that point. Striving for something more,
he decided to join his brother, who was in Baltimore, and put together a
band. While juggling a full-time job in construction during the day and
band practice at night, Adam was also carving out some time to sharpen
his skills as a songwriter. Channeling an eclectic group of artists from
Stevie Wonder to John Prine to Willie Nelson, Adam would allow whatever
phase he was in musically to drive him to create pieces reflective of
his revolving interests.
Eventually Adam’s personal life would
send him on a one-way trip to Nashville, where he decided to explore
what the local music scene had to offer. He parted ways with his
Baltimore band and entered Music City with no expectations, other than
to enjoy playing music in a town that envelops the culture. As the old
saying goes, when you stop looking for it, it will come, and that is
exactly what happened with Adam’s career.
He put together a bluegrass band, started
playing around town, and occasionally went out on the road with
artists. While playing a gig downtown one night, somebody from NBC’s The
Voice approached him and asked him to audition for the show. The
audition led to a successful run, and his newfound name recognition was
the catalyst for him to pursue a solo career.
Adam is now digging into his personal
songwriting catalog, introducing his original material to the fan base
he quickly built, and is taking his music out on the road as support for
major headlining acts. He released his debut self-titled EP in July 2017
, and is currently working on a Singer/Songwriter project set for release in 2018.
What certainly can be said about Adam
Wakefield when it comes to the music industry is that he approached it
uniquely, he entered it humbly, and he thrives in it confidently. It is
those qualities that make Adam a standout, influential performer in a
town that celebrates musicality and yearns for the type of atypical
twist he brings to the country music format.
