The third member of the Surrey Cover Band, Four To The Floor, is our lovely keys player Adam!
Hi Adam! Tell us about yourself...
I'm 23 and was born and raised in West London. I grew up learning and playing music in church and that still remains very important for me now. I've been working professionally in music since I left school at 18 and met the rest of the band studying at ACM over the last few years. I session as a keyboard player, guitarist and drummer for artists and functions. I also produce/write for artists and teach at a school.
What song reminds you of your childhood?
Some of the S Club 7 classics definitely take me back to summer holidays as a kid...particularly as a 7 year old dancing to 'Bring it All Back' in a holiday camp in France.
What was the first CD you bought?
The first single I bought was a song called 'Real World' by a boyband called D-Side when I was 9 or 10 years old. I think my musical tastes have improved a little bit since then...
What was the first band you saw perfrom live?
Muse at Wembley Stadium. That was a great introduction to live music on a big stage!
Do you have any musical guilty pleasures?
Britney Spears! Don't judge me!
What was the first gig you ever played?
Other that school concerts from when I was 10/11 years old, my first gig in a band was when I formed a group with 3 of my close friends called 'The Resigned'. We were 14 and our first show was a Battle-of-the-Bands in West London. I think it's safe to say our music wasn't much better than our name!
What was the best gig you ever played?
The biggest buzz I've felt after a show was my first time at the IndigO2 in London back when I was 20. It was a sold out audience of about 2000 people and it was just myself playing guitar with a singer on stage. The reaction from the crowd was deafening and I'll never forget it.
What is your favourite song to play in the Four To The Floor repertoire?
Definitely 'Treasure' by Bruno Mars. It just grooves so well, it's hard to get bored of playing it!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I find it hard to switch off from music. Being involved in performing, writing, producing and teaching means there's nearly always something to be getting on with. However, the things that do get me zoned out are my Playstation and keeping up with the football!
