The country had already fallen in love with the gruff-voiced Australian songwriter and guitarist thanks to his beloved EP Half Cut and Dangerous, when they learned how many of their faves considers him one of their own. Touring with Amy Shark and collaborating with Ruby Fields and Skegss’ Benny Reed is testament to that. An alt-rock artist with country sensibilities, Adam will arrive at Laneway ready to share the light and shade, the personal insecurities that transform into something universal when he puts them into song.
