He got his start in the music business after graduating from UNCA in 2017 by going on the road as a tour manager for the progressive bluegrass band, Jon Stickley Trio.

After moving to Durham, NC Adam became a graduate assistant at NCCU and earned a masters degree in composition and arranging. In 2022 he released his first jazz album as a bandleader entitled “Vibes + Tribes.”
