Adam Holmes lyrics resonate like ancient folk songs. His melodies familiar and uplifting. Its not unusual to feel tears rise during his live shows which have the feel of a boozy church service.
Think James Bond meets Robert Burns. Classy and timeless.
New album, ‘Hope Park’ is the finest of his work to date. Featuring Scotland’s best musicians and a visual release with Scottish writers Ian Rankin, Irvine Welsh and Darren McGarvey. Adam cut his teeth in the world of folk music.
Taking a space at the end of the bar in legendary folk pub Sandy Bells at eight years old to soak up the music.
Age 15, The death of a close friend and a cascade into addiction.
He found his way out through the focus of rapping until a singer booked didn’t show, Adam stepped up and discovered his voice.
Leaving school and moving out the family home age 16 he worked construction.
On the very same day he was finally offered a Carpentry apprenticeship aged 19 he received a phone-call offering him a place in the semi finals of the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2009.
