Belfast, County Down
Adam Grant is an indie, folk-punk singer songwriter from Comber, Co.Down. He learned his trade as front man for local punk/rock bands between 2006-2014, released 3 EP's, played at festivals in England, support act slots at Nottingham rock city, as well as local support at the Mandela Hall and The Limelight back home. In 2015, after a time out from music, he ventured into the solo singer songwriter scene, armed with an acoustic guitar, and a notebook of ideas, he slowly gained recognition for writing catchy relatable songs. A self released ep "The Fight" followed in 2016, and with it, every opportunity to perform his songs was taken. Confidence, and an ever growing repertoire of songs led him to a battle of the bands competition in Bangor in January 2018, and a chance to perform for one of his heroes, the legendary godfather of punk, Terri Hooley, who was a judge. He made it through the qualifying heat and semi final, and became the only solo act in the competition to make it to the final. It was at this point in the final, Terri got up and said, "The last thing I wanted to see in this competition was another singer songwriter with a beard, but your songs are strong, and I'd love to put you in the studio."
At this point Adam had already recorded 6 songs at a Belfast studio for an ep that was due to be released, so after recording 2 tracks for Terri in Lisburn, he returned to the studio to record 2 more tracks. All these tracks combined have resulted in the debut 10 track album "My World" which was released on April 30th 2018.
