About Adam Holmes

27 year-old Edinburgh born singer-songwriter Adam Holmes is one of the brightest rising stars on the UK roots music scene, with influences from either side of the
Atlantic mixing traditional and contemporary folk with his own brand of soul and Americana.

Twice nominated for BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, his first two albums were also nominated for Scottish Album of the Year in 2014 & 2017, and there is much anticipation as to whether he can make it three in a row this year with his third album ‘Midnight Milk’.

His first album, ‘Heirs & Graces’, was produced by John Wood (producer of all Nick Drake’s albums and John Martyn’s iconic ‘Solid Air’ album) and mastered by Simon Heyworth (co-producer of Mike Oldfield’s ‘Tubular Bells’) and second album, ‘Brighter Still’, features two-time BRIT award winner Eddi Reader on backing vocals throughout.

His latest album was recorded in his one bedroomed flat in Edinburgh, complete with full brass section, an eighteen piece choir and a widescreen folk/soul/electronica production, influenced by a 2016 collaboration with Adrian Utley of Portishead, Dominic Aitchison of Mogwai and Martin Green of Lau.
