Born in Guyana, where every possible genre of music is played and appreciated, Adams has, at some point, dabbled in all of those genres, but has spent the past decade playing Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae in the Washington, DC area.
Adams provides the backbone of the rhythm section of JohnStone with his arsenal of percussive sounds, accompanied by Warren Pedersen II solid bass foundation. Adams also sings, whether complimenting Andre White lead with heart-felt harmonies, or singing lead on his own original compositions such as Shine and Never Ever.
Prior to JohnStone, Adams was a member of the local Ska outfit Down Beat Rulers, who in 1996 opened for The Skatalites and The Toasters at the 9:30 Club and The Capitol Ballroom respectively. In 1997, Adams was a member of the roots reggae-flavored Cornerstone, which was the featured reggae act for the Annual Taste of DC festival.
