Adam Jensen [featured artist]

On the surface, a story like Adam Jensen’s seems all too common in the music industry: an aimless, mischievous youth is heading down the wrong path until, almost serendipitously, he picks up an instrument and develops a life-changing fascination with the craft of songwriting. But, dig a little deeper, and you’ll find that Adam Jensen’s story is a stupefying coming-of-age tale, filled with bookies and bar brawls, knives and jail cells, recovery and redemption. It’s a small miracle that Jensen is alive; let alone producing some of the most vibrant and inspiring songs of the last few years.

Up until his early twenties, Jensen was far from a law abiding citizen. After being kicked out of George Washington University and Northeastern University for fighting and stripped of his soccer scholarship, he made money working for a bookie and selling “a little weed”. Stabbings, assaults, scars, arrests, robberies, weekly supervised check-ins; these were just some of the reasons he decided to make a change. “I finally realized I needed to turn my life around when I flew to LA to record some music,” shares Jensen. “I got back to Boston, and the police were waiting for me as I got off the plane. I was arrested for violating my probation.”

Even during the darkest of days, Jensen always made time for music. “I started playing piano when I was about 9 years old,” he explains. And, I practiced on an old upright piano that I had to keep outside in the garage. Then, when I was 12, I saw Kurt Cobain on MTV and immediately started teaching myself guitar. I used an old acoustic that one of my uncles left behind after he was tossed into rehab.”

“Musically, my goal is to keep growing as an artist – never getting stuck in one place.”

Influenced by The Beatles

Influenced heavily by The Beatles and the proud owner of every Beatles pressing in circulation, Jensen also gets inspiration from Kurt Cobain and Third Eye Blind’s Stephan Jenkins. Though Jensen is – in some ways – still finding his footing, he has already made a name for himself with his boyish good looks, buttery voice and astonishingly unique brand of alternative-infused pop. Most impressive, perhaps, is his ability to pair buoyant, upbeat rhythms with dark and thought-provoking lyrics.
