Adam has worked as a freelance trumpet player since 1990. During this time he worked in many different genres of music in many contrasting settings. Below is a selection of highlights:

 
"Adam is a total professional. As a trumpet player he has a superb technique combined with exquisite musicianship and as a person he is utterly reliable and great fun to work with. His CV speaks for itself but personally, I can't recommend him enough!"
James Treweek - Director SMARTass Music Ltd.
