Adam Green

Having released seven solo albums in eight years Adam Green is already renowned around the globe as one of music’s most unique and prolific song writing talents. A New York native, Green was just 17-years old when he recorded and released his first album. As part of the downtown antifolk scene at the end of the nineties he made up one-half of The Moldy Peaches, the acclaimed duo with Kimya Dawson that enjoyed belated mainstream success via the Grammy-winning soundtrack of the 2007 Academy Award-winning movie Juno. As a skinny and effervescently articulate teenager he was a regular fixture at East Village music clubs. His poignant and idiosyncratic song writing was matched by a contagious excitement and enthusiasm for his craft. Since then, the former troubadour wunderkind has become a notable figure to indie-pop fans around the world, making regular appearances in arts and culture magazines, television shows, music clubs and festivals. In Europe he established himself as a bone fide pop star with chart hits like “Jessica”, “Emily” and “Morning After Midnight”. When The Moldy Peaches belatedly found their place at #1 on the Billboard Charts, via the Juno soundtrack, Green had already enjoyed a string of successful albums under his own name and was deep into the creation of his films and visual art.
