Chris Adams Short Info

His God father Roger Newell was playing bass for Rick Wakeman and Chris was taken along to rehearsals and gigs. Chris’s first instrument was the drums and at 8 years old he got to play with The Who at Wakemans studio's but at 12 he switched to guitar, Throughout his school years he would lock himself away in his room and became Jimi Hendrix, later another big influence was David Gilmour.

After leaving school with an award for outstanding achievement in music Chris worked in Boilerhouse studio’s in High Wycombe where he was involved in recording some of the UK’s top artists, Howard Jones, The Sex Pistols to name a few.

Chris also became close friends with Wal, ( the maker of the infamous Wal Bass Guitar ). Wal made instruments for many musicians including Roger Newell, Paul McCartney, Phil Collins and many more. Chris played guitar with many of these top artist's in the 1980's.

All of this acted as a huge musical influence on the young Chris Adams and his music can be described as modern rock with influences from the classic rock era. A virtuoso guitarist and much of his work features guitar from Classical to rock.

Now based in The Highlands of Scotland Chris is involved in all aspects of the industry and works in partnership with Xponorth. Chris was well received at Belladrum festival the past few years and continues to record and write great music.

Some reviews

“Chris Adams is perhaps the best guitarist to come out of the UK”
Phil Penny - Radio Trent.

“Phil Keaggy is an amazing guitarist. After three decades in harness, he still retains the ability to play incredible music in almost every conceivable style, from classical to heavy metal. Until now, I have never come across anyone capable of emulating the maestro. But, having heard this album, I am prepared to stick my neck out and suggest that Chris Adams could well be the man to take on the mantle.”
Chris Tozer - Cross Rhythms magazine.
