Lyme’s own blues rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Adam Sweet launches his 2020 album ‘Sink or Swim’ at his hometown theatre. Here with his full band he’ll be performing his stunning new album in full, plus favourites from his acclaimed back catalogue and the occasional nod to some of his blues guitar heroes too.

Adam first picked up a guitar aged 7 and maintained a smoldering interest until his early teens when he was taken to see his first live show at the Marine Theatre! Blues rock band The Hamsters were in town that night, and their opening Hendrix number provided the spark needed to set Adam on his way. At 15 he began performing as a guitarist, steadily honing his skills and finding his voice and is now successfully carving out a solo career. His debut album ‘Small Town Thinking’ received 5 stars and the Album of the Month award from Guitar Techniques Magazine. His follow up acoustic EP ‘Take Your Time’ received equally glowing reviews praising his “soulful vocals and expertly piercing guitar work” and featured regularly on BBC Introducing.

Adam’s new album ‘Sink or Swim’ showcases a big step forward in his career with a sound that has developed from working closely with new band members Ian Jennings on bass (Jeff Beck, Robert Plant, Ronnie Wood, Mick Fleetwood) and Garry Kroll on drums (Mark Ronson, Joss Stone, Sandi Thom, Andrea Bocelli). With producer Josiah J Manning at the helm at Momentum Studios, Plymouth, the album captures the raw energy and excitement of the band whilst always serving the richly detailed songs crafted by Adam and his long-standing writing partner Steve Black. With brooding ballads and rollicking rootsy rock, Adam’s new album will see him continue to carve out his own territory between classic rock, blues and Americana. 

The launch show will see the new album performed in its entirety by Adam’s full band with special guests.
