For Adam Traum it is always about doing right by the song!
Growing up in Woodstock, New York, in a musical family Adam Traum had a front row seat to music history. Adam is proudly carrying on the tradition his way, cross-pollinating Americana genres, blending folk, blues, bluegrass, singer-songwriters and country-blues in his diverse songwriting and cover arrangements. When he performs Adam brings his passion for music to the stage and puts on a well-polished show with tasty guitar chops and a relaxed but powerful voice to match.
He formed his love and fundamental understanding of music watching modern roots/rock pioneers like John Sebastian and The Band play their well crafted, soulfully performed songs. At the same time he was raiding his father's ample record collection and listening to masters of blues, country and folk for hours and doing his best to play along. After several stints in rock bands, Traum found the truth, beauty and honesty in roots music that can't hide behind tricks and effects. His commitment to excellence in songwriting and musicianship translates to his recorded and live performances.
He also has several popular videos on Homespun Music Instruction.
Wolf Run's first video release
Adam Traum and Jack Hines have been playing as a duo for about nine years but finally gave themselves a name! Here is their first video as Wolf Run covering "Look at Miss Ohio," a beautiful song written by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
As 2019 is coming to an end, Adam Traum has a handful of gigs but has started recording with Wolf Run, his trio with Jack Hines and Kendrick Freeman. He also continues to write for his solo acoustic CD. Adam is also excited to be teaching for the first time at Walker Creek Music Camp.
He has also started a Patreon website where you can get exclusive content and will have access to his revamped podcast Live From the Kitchen Table.
