Adam Wendler is an independent multi-instrumentalist from Ontario, Canada, currently based in Berlin, Germany. Ever since picking up the guitar at the age of 15, Adam has been writing songs, dedicated to sharing his music with the world.
At only 27 years old Adam has independently released three solo albums, ‘All or Nothing’ (2018), ‘Never Go Unknown’ (2017) and ‘A Forward Moving Motion’ (2016) as well as 11 official music videos and numerous live videos leading to airplay on national radio in both Canada and Germany (CBC Radio; radioeins). Adam has been featured on Balcony TV and Berlin Sessions and several of his songs have ranked in the Singer-Songwriter iTunes charts. Adam’s music has been praised by numerous blogs and in 2018 he was included as a feature artist in 'Akustik Gitarre', one of Europe’s biggest acoustic guitar magazines.
Adam's one-man-band live setup involves an acoustic guitar, his one of a kind vocal, a harmonica, kick-drum and tambourine. His performances have shown to be both captivating and engaging - combining soft finger-picking with hard strumming, he draws acute attention from his audience. Adam has toured Germany and Canada extensively, along with areas in Australasia. He has played major festivals in Europe and North America such as Open Flair, Live at Heart and Kingsville Folk Music Festival (alongside Serena Ryder and the Milk Carton Kids). His diverse performance keeps large crowds in awe, which he has proven opening for artists such as Matt Mays, the Arkells and Ryan Sheridan. With his ever-growing setup, Adam has managed to replicate the sound of a full band being only one man.
Since 2018 Adam has been continuously collaborating with songwriters and producers in the Berlin music scene. He has played guitar on notorious ‘Beatstars’ tracks produced by beat making icons Pacific, one of which (“Youth”) has already garnered over 3 Million views on YouTube alone.
His dedication is second to none and he is committed to taking his music as far as it can go, already planning his next releases leading up to yet another very special album.
