Now, here is a guy who knows how to transform a room.

Armed with six touching songs of love and loss (but mostly loss), Adam Bianchi was the final act at One Night Music's Launch Party on February 14th, 2009. His set was the perfect soundtrack to an unconventional Valentine's Day evening. Adam began with "Maggie," a nostalgic song of heartfelt regret, and proceeded to simultaneously break and mend the heart of every captivated audience member with each simple yet elegant tune.

At age 27, Adam is an extremely thoughtful and genuine musician. As Adam played, it was tempting to recall a young, freewheelin Mr. Bob Dylan, the early acoustic sessions of Elvis Costello, or make any number of other flattering comparisons. This is because, as a folk artist, he falls in the category of "old souls in young bodies." His songs are accessible and endearing, as comforting as a cup of black coffee in the morning or an old bottle of whiskey by a campfire. One hears Adam play and thinks: "Things can get pretty bad, and sometimes they never get better, so thank heavens for music like this."

Adam has lived in Ventura County, CA since he was three years old, and was exposed to good music in his youth by the musicians in his extended family. He began writing, recording and releasing his own material around the age of 21, and began performing this material soon after.  In our opinion, he is also quite a likable fellow, and is the number one guy you would want to take with you on a road trip to the Grand Canyon. We know you will find his performance both uniquely memorable, and warmly familiar.
