Hey Adam, where you from?

St. Louis, Missouri, born and raised.

How long have you been playing guitar?

I just graduated to playing guitar longer than not playing guitar in my life--16 years.

Do you play any other instruments?

I play upright bass, electric bass, lap-steel, banjo-uke, some claw-hammer banjo, and a bit of mandolin. 

Can you do anything else?

I'm an audio engineer, music producer, arranger, and song writer.

What musical influences do you have?

I have influences scattered from all over the spectrum. I love most kinds of man-made music. Rock 'n' Roll, Country Blues, Trad-Jazz, Ragtime, anything where it is clear that the band or composer cares about their craft. 

How long have you played with Pokey Lafarge?

Almost 10 years. We've been wearing out vans the whole time too.

Do you have any thoughts on doing a solo album?

Nah. I've thought about doing a seven inch or something, but I really prefer to play with full bands. Even if I did do a solo album, it would just be filled with all my friends playing on it.

Got any new projects in the works?

Glad you asked, I've been writing a bunch of instrumental songs lately. They're focused on guitar-heavy melodies, electric guitar mainly. So far, it's heavily western themed, probably due to the fact that I've been listening to a lot of country music.
