Adam graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music in 2003 where he gained a BA (Music) and the prestigious PPRNCM (professional performance) as part of the Lowry Brass Quintet. Following graduation, he spent several years working as a freelance trombonist and has performed with such groups as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Halle Orchestras, brass bands such as Black Dyke, Brighouse and Rastrick and Grimethorpe and was a founder member of both the Lowry Brass Quintet and the New Art Ensemble.
In 2007 Adam joined B&H Sound Services as an assistant recording engineer and quickly rose through the ranks to the position of senior recording engineer. Along with now managing World of Sound, Adam is a highly sought after producer and engineer, bringing a sound musical understanding with a genuine passion for recording. Adam takes great pride in helping World of Sound expand from its original specialism in recording brass, which it still maintains, into the wider classical world. Just a few of the artists and ensembles Adam has worked with are; Cory, Foden’s, Black Dyke and Grimethorpe Colliery Bands, Philip Cobb (BBCSO), James Fountain (LSO), Peter Moore (LSO), Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his Monteverdi Choir and Orchestras, London Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, RTE Concert Orchestra, The Sixteen, The King's Singers, Jess Gilliam and Nicola Benedetti. The recent recording of Bach's St John Passion with John Eliot Gardiner, Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists produced by Adam for record label Deutsche Grammophon received widespread critical acclaim and was also nominated in the 2023 Grammy awards.
