As a sideman, Adam Falcon has worked with and shared the stage with some of the brightest names in music. These artists include Roberta Flack, Sophie B. Hawkins, Whitney Houston, B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Jim Lauderdale, Marcus Miller, Steve Jordan, Robert Palmer, Peter Gabriel, and Nona Hendryx, just to name a few. Stepping out on his own, he's opened for James Cotton Blues Band, Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Ruthie Foster, The Wailers, Jim Lauderdale and Tower of Power. Writing Grammy Nominated songs for George Benson and having songs on national television got Falcon noticed by The Song Writers Hall of Fame, which honored him with the Abe Olman Scholarship Award for Songwriting in 2007. His composition, Woke Up Cryin', made him a semi-finalist in the International Songwriters Competition, and landed him a nomination for the 15th Independent Music Awards.
What The People Say
“I HAVE BEEN IN TUNE TO HIS PLAYING AND MUSICAL IDEAS FOR A LONG TIME. BOTH AS A GUITAR PLAYER AND COMPOSER. NOW I'M HEARING HIM FOR THE FIRST TIME AS A VOCALIST, AND I LIKE IT!" — George Benson
“ADAM FALCON’S ROCK-INFUSED FUNK AND PURE, SOULFUL VOICE RECALL THE MOST HONEST OF ’70S RHYTHM & BLUES, RECALLING THE BEST OF SHUGGIE OTIS, CURTIS MAYFIELD, AND MARVIN GAYE.” —JAZZIZ Magazine
“ADAM IS LIKE A BREATH OF FRESH AIR, FULL OF LIFE, LIGHT, AND WARM AND SOULFUL TEXTURES. YOUR GUITAR SOUNDS GREAT, AND I LOVE THE VOICINGS YOU USED IN YOUR BEAUTIFUL ARRANGEMENT OF ‘UP FROM THE SKIES’ (I, TOO, AM COLORED, IN BLACK & WHITE) ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS OF ALL TIME.” — Vernon Reid (Living Colour)
SMOOTH MELODIES FRAME THE VOICE OF A CLASSIC CROONER WITH INFLUENCES FROM SEAL TO SMOKEY ROBINSON, BUT WHEN HE GETS HIS GROOVE ON MORE AGGRESSIVELY WITH “SOUL SATISFIED” AND “LIKE A SOLDIER,” OR SHOWS A FONDNESS FOR THE BLUES ON “BETTER DAYS,” HE MAKES AN EQUALLY FORMIDABLE IMPACT. BOHEMIAN 959 BENEFITS FROM NOT ONLY FALCON’S VERSATILITY, BUT HIS POLISH AND PROFESSIONALISM AS WELL. POISED AND CONFIDENT, FALCON IS READY TO SOAR” - M MUSIC and MUSICIANS
“TAKING THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED IS SOMETIMES LONGER, YET INFINITELY MORE INTERESTING. ADAM’S NEW RECORD (BOHEMIAN 959) HAS A WIDE VARIETY OF FLAVORS AND POINTS TO MANY INFLUENCES, BUT WITH SUCH AN EXCEPTIONAL MUSICAL LIFE BEFORE HIM, ADAM HAS MADE A DEEPLY PERSONAL STATEMENT. — Nona Hendryx
