“Brighter Days” is a new pop song written by Adam to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the New Mills One World Festival in Derbyshire, UK. Adam wrote & produced the track in his home studio & workshopped  / recorded children’s theatre group “Take Part In The Art” who added the vocals, alongside session musicians on guitar & cornet. The track is now available to listen or free download at

“That’s When” from Adam’s album “When The Rain Comes Down” has been published this July by Astute Music Ltd & NW JazzWorks:

“We had an overwhelming response to our call for submissions, and have been able to include a wide variety of styles in the book. It will be an asset to a wide range of jazz players, from those at the height of their craft to those who are just learning to play. In order to select the pieces for the final publication, we gathered together a team of around 6 key jazz industry figures for the reviewing process”…”The final result highlights the skilled jazz composers who call the North West home – and we hope it helps finally put to bed the myth that you have to travel to London, or New York, to find accomplished jazzers. ”
