One of the key elements of jazz mastery is the ability of the artist to tell stories through music; an art that many feel has been lost. The remarkable guitarist Adam Smale indeed has stories to tell. To weave his fascinating stories, Adam brings two formidable components to the table – his personally designed 7-string guitars, and a virtuosic mastery honed by the influence of a diverse array of brilliant guitarists and musicians.
Influences include Flatt & Scruggs, Lenny Breau, Chet Atkins, Albert Lee and Eddie Van Halen. Later discovering a goldmine of jazz guitar masters, including Pat Martino, Pat Metheny, Tal Farlow, Jim Hall, and John Scofield, and Kurt Rosenwinkel, along with Charlie Parker and Bill Evans, a new world of possibilities opened up for him.
