Scottish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Beattie is now living in London. He has been active since 2003 and to date has released 4 albums of his own songs: "Abu Bozy" (2006), "We'll Wave From The Shore" (2009), "Songs Of One Hundred Years" (2012) and "The Road Not Taken" (2016). Having roots in Scottish folk music, as well as a lifelong interest in old time jazz, blues and other folk styles, his music spans many genres but is all held together by Adam's distinctive voice and narrative lyrics. He has played opening shows for many of his musical heroes, including Bert Jansch, Jolie Holland and Sean Hayes, as well as collaborating on guitar and bass with artists including Brooke Sharkey, Scott Hirsch, Michael Chapman and Gabriel Moreno. In 2016 Adam was invited by Oscar-winning actor Mark Rylance to sing his song 'I'm On Your Side' at the Stop the War Christmas fundraiser, performing alongside Brian Eno. Adam has recently joined a new group called PicaPica featuring singers Josienne Clarke and Samantha Whates and producer Sonny Johns, which is signed to Rough Trade Records. He is also part of Band of Burns, a 12-piece band of singers and instrumentalists. Adam contributes interpretations of Robert Burns songs as well as original compositions, and this year they played Celtic Connections in Glasgow on Burns night at The Old Fruitmarket as part of a UK wide tour. Adam is currently working on a new album of original songs for his fifth solo album.
