Adam Place: A Rising Musician Whose Debut EP 'All Out of Love' is Winning Hearts and Ears!

Adam Place is a talented musician from England who is known for his exceptional ability to play the piano and his innovative approach to music. He draws inspiration from a diverse range of artists, including Bowie and Batiste. Adam has extensive experience working with various talented musicians, and he has served as a musical director for several show bands. In 2022, Adam released his debut EP titled "All Out of Love." Despite the title, the EP was a labour of love and a source of great joy for Adam, who had faced many challenges in the preceding years. Adam is excited about writing more music and sharing it with his fans, as well as enjoying good drinks with them in the years to come.

You can listen to Adam playing live on the 29th of July in Saughton Park. Meanwhile, we invite you to learn more about him from this interview:

1. Tell us about you/your music

I'm a musician and piano-man from Worcester. My debut EP was released in late 2022 and I've been blessed that it has been extremely well received. Since its release, gigs have taken me all over from London to Edinburgh, and I'm really excited to share my music with you at Saughton Park.

2. What do you like about Music in the Community?

Anything that gets live musicians playing, especially supporting local and grassroots acts, is a great thing for music in the UK. Having seen how MITC encourages up-and-coming and experienced musicians to come together in Edinburgh is fantastic.

3. What do you like/find channelling about the Edinburgh music industry?

In the music industry as a whole, and particularly in capital cities like Edinburgh and London, listeners and audiences are inundated with fantastic rising musicians, who can make new music from their bedrooms to the studio. One of the great challenges for any up-and-coming musician (and I certainly haven't cracked it!) is being able to cut through the noise and get to the people who will really enjoy your style.

4. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I have no idea; hopefully as someone with a better answer to this question!

5. Can you recommend any organisations that help musicians/any that you receive help or advice from?

While us younger people might not listen to the radio quite as much, BBC Introducing is a great way for musicians to get heard. I would also recommend following/listening to the Openback podcast (IG - @openback.podcast) who have some great music industry guests on!

6. Who inspires you?

In music, I love Bowie, Queen, and Oasis - although I admit my music sounds nothing like their stuff!

7. What advice would you give a musician at the start of the road?

I'm not quite sure I'm in any position to give advice, but if I could it would be to enjoy it. As musicians we so often get wrapped up in comparisons and ambitions that it takes away from the love of the music that brought us into doing this! Oh, and practice! You never know when someone may need you to play or accompany for a gig last minute and it's always best to be prepared!
