A whirlwind of talent, Adam Katz delivers a brilliant fusion of Pop, R&B & Nu-Jazz, where melodic verses are met with clever ‘rapid fire delivery’ (Sydney Morning Herald – Metro Theatre Show) of freestyle raps that captivate and flirt with jaw-dropped spectators. With a repertoire from the Old School hits of Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, to the freshest tracks on the charts, Katz moves seamlessly between Pop, Soul, Jazz, Dance Hits and his favourite, R&B.
Katz’ grassroots success is evident in his already impressive history on stage, as a regular at Sydney hotspots like The Basement, The Beresford and The IVY, as well as several appearances the past few years at the seminal Splendour in the Grass Festival, and support slots for major artists including 112, Pitbull, Akon and Sean Paul.
The reason for Katz’ bubbling success is clear – his engaging live charisma, where he’s just as comfortable fronting his 8-piece band, delivering a smooth pop melody or throwing down an improvised rap or freestyle. He’s celebrated for being able to break away from his routine at any moment, riffing spontaneously on what’s going on around him in the crowd.
Adam released his debut single ‘Stars’ through Central Station Records, which achieved national rotation on both 2dayfm, Nova and MTV, and hit #8 on the UK club charts. He then went on to win ‘Pop artist of the year’ at The MusicOz Independent Music Awards.
In the meantime, he’s extending an invite to come and check out one of his regular Sydney gigs. “If you come and see me perform, I promise to dedicate an entire minute to freestyle about it!”
Adam can perform from a duo, up to an 8-piece band. Instruments include guitar, drums, keys, bass, female vocalist, violin and saxophone.
