About Adam Traum
Adam Traum is a compelling story teller who wraps his catchy hooks with infectious grooves.The recent spate of material Adam has been writing evokes images of the Americana landscape spinning tales of heartbreak, beauty, joy and love in a myriad of cohesive styles. He is currently recording an upcoming CD with Wolf Run as well as a solo release of his quieter material.
Growing up in Woodstock, New York, in a musical family, Traum had a front row seat to music history. He formed his love and fundamental understanding of music watching modern roots/rock pioneers like The Band, John Sebastian and Orleans play their well crafted, soulfully performed songs. At the same time Adam was raiding his father's (Happy Traum) ample record collection listening to masters of blues, country and folk for hours and doing his best to play along. After several full on rock bands, Traum found the truth, beauty and honesty in roots music that can't hide behind tricks and effects. His commitment to excellence in songwriting and musicianship translates to his recorded and live performances.
Adam Traum is proudly carrying on the family tradition his way, cross-pollinating Americana genres, blending folk, bluegrass, outlaw singer-songwriters, country blues, and a touch of jazz in his diverse songwriting and cover arrangements. When he performs live Adam brings his passion for music to the stage with a well-polished show, tasty instrumental chops and a relaxed but powerful voice to match. He also has several popular videos on Homespun Music Instruction.
Adam came as a guest teacher last fall and was so well received we're bringing him back!
