Over the next 8 years while attending college and professional school, Adam continued to pursue his love of music by teaching himself to play guitar and continuing to strengthen his song writing abilities. Fundamentally influenced by his experience as a drummer/percussionist, Adam’s style of piano play ranges from haunting soft melodies to aggressive, complex patterns and arpeggios. Balancing deeply emotional lyrics, powerful vocals, and rhythmically complex instrumentation, Adam proves to be a favorite of both casual listeners and analytical musicians. Adam has recently been named artist of the month by OpenGString.com, Youtuber of the week by the Remy Radio Show out of Bloomington, IL (101.5 WBNQ), and won the "Solo Performance" category on Ourstage.com for November '07.
He has over 550,000 total videos views on his Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/monroe12478), featuring live performance videos of originals and covers by Tool, A Perfect Circle, Incubus and the Police. Above are a few studio demos from his first solo EP "Illusions Fade" released 12/11/07, available at all major online retailers (see below for links). Recording sessions were held at Westlake Studios in West Hollywood, and Studio West (www.studiowest.com) and Capricorn Studios (www.capricornstudios.net) in San Diego, CA. Vocals, piano, rhodes, and percussion by Adam.
