Denver based singer/songwriter Adam Lockwood captivates with his indie/folk rock seasoned with a touch of pop, a dash of grunge, and thought-provoking lyrics. His passionate live performance conveys the deeply personal side of his unique and stirring songwriting. Hailing from the former acoustic progressive rock band Psycle, Adam has recently struck out in pursuit of his solo career. With plans for a new album on the horizon, Adam Lockwood is truly an artist to follow.
Adam Lockwood was captivated by music at an early age. From playing cassettes through his new boom box to the days of playing classical violin in the school orchestra; Adam knew that music wasn’t just enjoyable — it moved his soul.
Yet this was neither when nor where the muse would truly take hold. In the seventh grade, a chickenpox-induced hiatus began Adam’s life-long fascination with the guitar. His mother taught him a traditional Spanish ditty and he began picking up songs he heard on the radio. Not much later, Adam’s father gave him his Rickenbacker electric, and the rest is history. Like the virus that had instigated the whole episode, he was infected for life.
In his early college years, Adam knew that his involvement in music would be much more than a hobby. He performed in several groups in and out of school, including an advanced choir, which had the opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City. During this time, Adam also performed with a progressive acoustic rock band, a big band jazz ensemble, and a singer/songwriter group.
Recently, the focus of Adam’s creative energy has been occupied by his solo work. Songwriting has always been the heart of Adam’s musical expression. He strives to create music that’s composition and substance is able to be both universally appreciated and deeply personal.
