Adam Sweet Band
Adam Sweet recently released his second studio album ‘Sink or Swim’, marking his evolution into a fully-fledged blues-rock artist who delivers brooding ballads and rollicking rootsy rock balanced with soulful vocals and expertly piercing guitar work.
Taking his cue from the British blues boom sounds of Free and early Fleetwood Mac, married to the driving guitar style of Rory Gallagher and the sweet sounds of Little Feat and the Allman Brothers, Adam has spent the last decade carving out his own territory between classic rock, blues and Americana.
With his band, Adam’s timeless sound is strengthened by a powerful rhythm section featuring two of the best in the business - Ian Jennings and Gary Kroll.
Ian Jennings is a stalwart bass player of the British Blues scene, whose CV boasts the likes of Jeff Beck, Robert Plant, Ronnie Wood, Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood and Mark Knopfler, to name a few.
Alongside Ian is Garry Kroll on drums, one of the UK’s most in demand session players with recording credits including Mark Ronson, Joss Stone and Sandi Thom.
The ’Sink or Swim’ album has received extensive radio play spending two months in the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association Top 40 chart and was listed in the Top 3 Breakthrough Albums of 2020 by ‘Get Ready To ROCK’ and included in the Best Americana Albums of 2020 by Dutch music blogger ‘Slim Chance’.
