Prolific singer-songwriter, Adam Lanceley, is back after the release of his fifth album Postcards From Then…, with a new EP that will devote its sales to the Brain and Spine Foundation called Back To The Sunshine.
At the age of ten, Adam was involved in a serious car crash that left him with severe head injuries, fighting for his life. Doctors told his parents that it was unlikely he would ever walk or talk again, but Adam demonstrated outstanding determination proving them wrong by making a full recovery and has since gone on to run several 10K races. This also led to Adam running the London Marathon in 2012 in aid of his chosen charity, the Brain and Spine foundation. He has raised a considerable amount of money for the charity that means so much to him and the new EP, Back To The Sunshine adds to that list.
Adam adds: ‘I know it is a charity well worth supporting so that the trauma is reduced for future sufferers and I am committed to trying to help as much as I can’.
Whilst Adam has his own distinctive style, he has been experimenting with new production methods and instrumentation that can embellish what he has already done. He has been compared to the likes of Lou Reed and Nick Cave, but Adam takes most inspiration from the West Coast sound of his primary influence, The Beach Boys.
The new EP has also seen Adam look back to his childhood for songwriting inspiration. Places such as Devon and Yorkshire, that he fondly remembers, have provided original material for him to manipulate into songs full of meaningful lyrics and mystical grandeur.
With five previous albums to his name, Adam is a prolific songwriter with an affinity for his craft. The new EP was recorded in Surbiton with the help of a sound engineer who worked the engineering for The Eagles when they last played at the Royal Albert Hall.
All net proceeds from the sales of Back To The Sunshine will be donated to The Brain and Spine Foundation and the EP is set for release 7th April.
