After surviving a near-fatal car crash in 2008, Adam wrote his first song, Thank You, as a note of gratitude to God for sparing his life and giving him all he has. And Adam has plenty to be thankful for – a beautiful wife, two great kids and a gift for songwriting.

Adam spent most of his career as an undercover narcotics officer in Iowa. There he saw the dark side of human existence and felt it slowly changing who he was. So God prompted Adam to change careers and led him to music. Today, writing and singing songs is a major focus in his life.

Adam recently completed work on his new CD, STAY. It’s a collection of eight new songs with a variety of emotions. From the positive Keep Believing to the self-affirmation of January, Adam’s songs inspire with the purpose to keep God front and center in our lives.

If you ask Adam, he’ll tell you he doesn’t write the songs alone. He credits God for using him to channel the words and melodies God wants people to hear. That may explain why the lyrics speak so personally.
