Adem’s music journey began at the age of nine on guitar when his music teacher reached out to his parents, saying that Adem had an “ear for music.” By Eleven, he was writing and singing his own songs.
Adem has had the opportunity to perform on many stages locally and internationally, from the House of Blues Chicago, Chicago Blues Fest 2016 and ’17, Windsor Liuna Blues Fest 2018, and Alfred’s on Beale St. in Memphis for the International Blues Challenge (2019).
He recently participated in season 2 of American Idol after catching the attention of Casting Producers. Adem performed for the celebrity judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan, who awarded him the prestigious GOLDEN TICKET to Hollywood Week in California.
The 2018 Chicago Music Award winner has since released new music on all platforms, which have been featured on Chicago Soundcheck, Chicago radio-station WLUW 88.7 , Radio one Chicago, and UK podcast “The Bugcast”.
