Big Jim Adam's emotional singing and sliding swampy guitar, combined with his foot percussion skills make for a powerful performance. Jim's unique style is a fusion of the raw blues he heard as a child being played on the front porches of his neighborhood, combined with the gospel music he sang growing up. These driving rhythms and heartfelt vocals give him his unique sound. Jim's vocal and guitar work can be heard in the PBS special "For Love of Liberty." Jim also won the 2012 Telluride Acoustic Blues Solo Competition. "Contest winner Jim Adam gave us some of the best and most authentic blues I have heard in a while. This man definitely deserved winning the Acoustic Blues competition" --- Listen Up Denver.
