Adam Carpenter

From the valleys of South Wales, singer-songwriter Adam Carpenter has been performing on the Manchester music scene for a few years now. After honing his skills through successful sets at major festivals including Glastonbury and 2000 Trees, he has gone on to release various EPs, culminating with the release of his debut album ‘Tidal Wave’.

Following the release of his fourth EP (January 2018’s self-released ‘Aviation Club’, following the story arc of Kiki’s Delivery Service), Adam has worked with producer Michael Webster to release his first full length album. Having had time to sharpen his songwriting and perform alongside artists such as C Duncan, Nervus and Adult Mom, he has selected 11 of his strongest songs yet into a cohesive collection, exploring themes of mental illness (Stilt Owl, Poison in the Water), insecurities (Inhale/Exhale, Free Therapy) and long-distance romance (Tidal Wave, Heal). He primarily writes songs for himself, aiming either to help understand his feelings and identity, or to have uplilfting songs to remember when times are tough.

Adam’s new EP ‘Obliterate/Ugly’ was recently released on the 8th of May 2020, and you can find it available for streaming on Spotify here, or purchase the new EP at his Bandcamp.
