ADAM WAKEFIELD - Is the runner up from the hit TV-show 'The Voice'. Adam Wakefield is a singer-songwriter who has secured his place in Nashville, TN, but is far from the typical artist one may expect to find in the Country Music Capital of the World. Growing up in New Hampshire, Adam didn’t intend to become an artist. In fact, his original goal was to become a musician. He began to play piano when he was younger and in search of a hobby, especially one at which he believed he could excel. Adam’s intuitions were correct, and he continued to play piano until it was time to make a musical choice and hone in on a certain genre as a pianist. Rather than choosing the predictable classical route, the man who has become celebrated for his uniqueness in his artistry opted for jazz. The desire to continue his piano-playing in the jazz circuit lasted about one year into college, and that was when Adam realized he wanted to make a larger contribution to music than the one he was destined to at that point. Striving for something more, he decided to join his brother, who was in Baltimore, and put together a band. While juggling a full time job in construction during the day and band practice at night, Adam was also carving out some time to sharpen his skills as a songwriter. Channeling an eclectic group of artists from Stevie Wonder to John Prine to Willie Nelson, Adam would allow whatever phase he was in musically to drive him to create pieces reflective of his revolving interests. What certainly can be said about Adam Wakefield when it comes to the music industry is that he approached it uniquely, he entered it humbly, and he thrives in it confidently. It is those qualities that make Adam a standout, influential performer in a town that celebrates musicality and yearns for the type of atypical twist he brings to the country music format. www.facebook.com/AdamWakefieldMusic www.adamwakefieldmusic.com
