Adam Werner is a solo acoustic guitarist with an interest in unconventional techniques, styles and applications to finger style guitar playing. He has an impressive musical background of experience and education. Adam continues to move forward and grow as an accomplished musician and artist. Adam is a member of the Association For Finger-style Guitarists (AFG) and is currently an active participant/performer with the Wood Song Acoustic Concert Series. Adam is also a regular performer at the NAMM conventions in Anaheim, California.
As a solo artist, Adam has been recognized as a "guitarist extraordinaire," by Rock City News, and "an artist that provokes curiosity, is quite an unconventional player with very atmospheric and rhythmic music and musicianship that is very intriguing," by The L A Music Scene, while performing as his Tribute to the late Michael Hedges.
Indigenous to California, Adam grew up with rock guitar legends, such as: Randy Rhoads, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani. Adam started his first rock band in the early 1990's and gained much respect as an innovative and progressive musician who incorporated odd meters, unorthodox key changes and intricate instrumentation with compositions that pushed the boundaries of rock music. He soon found the desire to explore the acoustic guitar when introduced to Windham Hill and its artists, such as: William Ackerman and Michael Hedges. Soon after, Adam decided this was the direction he was destined to go.
Adam has been doing solo performances around the Los Angeles, California area and abroad for a little over a year and has received much respect amongst the music industry professionals and local musicians. Adam's performance experiences range from cafes, clubs, colleges, universities, showcases, competitions, trade shows and festivals throughout the West Coast and into the Midwest. When performing, Adam tours with 3 guitars; Kiso DK-1, Martin D-28, and the Dyer-style Symphony Harp Guitar.
Adam is best known for his Tribute to the late Michael Hedges, but has continued to draw from his experiences in order to create acoustic guitar work with his own compositions and is respected as a guitarist and musician. Adam continues to draw new interest with every performance, which adds to his following. His following consists of musicians and music lovers of all ages.
Adam's passion for music is only surpassed by his tenacious drive to continue an active career as a musician and performer without compromising his integrity or desire to explore, learn and grow.
