Singer Adam Dayton Gibson born in Atlanta GA. With 9 years age difference between his Aunt and Uncle, Adam developed an interest in music at an early age. Both his Aunt and Uncle were always buying the latest albums of bands like the Rolling Stones and Led Zepplin. Adam states "I saw how cool these groups were and the impact they had on my Aunt and Uncle, so from a very early age I decided Rock and Roll was what I wanted to do with my life."
Adam chose the drums as his instrument because they fascinated him. After playing in several different bands as drummer, some band mates of his moved to Athens GA for college. They needed a singer, so he went out for the job. His first show as singer was in front of 400 drunk college kids at UGA. It "was fun" singing covers by the Allman Brothers and Rolling Stones, so he decided to sell the drumset he had just paid off and bought a microphone. Loading in for a show was a lot simplier with just a microphone and stand!
In 1992, Adam was offered a songwriting deal with EMI Music Publishing and moved to Nashville. During that two year stint, he met many of Country Musics biggest stars. "From Waylon Jennings to Willie Nelson, Steve Earle to Vince Gill, wherever they were, so was I" states Adam. After two years and lack of a "HIT", Adam moved back to Atlanta and met Mike McKinley through a mutual friend. They hit it off as friends and became the songwriting partners that has led to what we know today as ADAMSDAY.
A few years later and several drummers, Adam met Robert Schmid, a veteran drummer and local drum legend. "Believe all you hear, Robert was there with the SEX PISTOLS, The POLICE, REM, B-52's, ect" says Adam. Robert is The BEST! Having a dedicated and great new addition, the band recorded their first Cd "BREATHE IT IN". Last November, ADAMSDAY entered the studio again to record a six song EP "Six Pack Marigold" which features COWBOY MOUTH's John Thomas Griffith as co producer. JTG also lended his talents on keyboards, guitar and pedal steel. In March, the band added bassist Michael "Spike" Burlison. Spike started out as a guitarist/vocalist in Palmer and The Push, becoming a staple at The Agora and Rumors, among other posh nightspots. Spike played in many notable Atlanta bands such as The New Romeos, Bullithead, Spike's Breakfast Nook and Shebang. In the midst of all of this, Spike started out as an assistant, then graduated to recording engineer in 1985 at Web IV Studios, Rival Studios and Transmedia Productions before doing a stint in L.A., including time at MCA Publishing and Peer Publishing. "Spike is a great addition to the band. He studied operatic vocal technique which makes him a great backup singer and his bass playing meshes with Robert perfectly" says Mike.
ADAMSDAY is a "BAND WITH SONGS" and on the rise!
