As a member of the band fronted by Peter Doherty, Adam has seen the best and worst of life at the casualty-laden core of the music industry. What many people don't know is that he is a blistering artistic talent in his own right.Roses Kings Castles is the moniker under which Adam performs and records his own unique catalogue of quixotic, chiming, and blissfully astute acoustic pop songs. Lost somewhere between Belle & Sebastian's pastoral warmth and the hallucinatory six-string invocations of Syd Barrett, a typical Roses Kings Castles track is buoyed by the finest elements of classic British songwriting; by turns wry, beautiful, and bizarre.Originally conceived as an outlet for Adam's "need to create my own ideas when Babyshambles were on holiday," Roses Kings Castles quickly became something more than a means of occupying himself whilst on hiatus. "I continually write, whether it's big band arrangements, electro riffs or folk-pop songs. I just needed an avenue to walk down." Tune in again!
