FRESH: ‘Kiss Every Stranger’ – John Adams

John Adams releases pop anthem “Kiss Every Stranger”

Welsh singer/songwriter John Adams kicks off 2020 with the release of his new single “Kiss Every Stranger”. This new song is a unique blend of his heartfelt songwriting and pop beats with minimal electronic production. “Kiss Every Stranger” questions the idea of ‘finding the one’ in romantic relationships: “It’s easy to find what you’re looking for if you know what it looks like, but what if you have no idea?” John says about the track.

With a reach in his tone to match Sam Smith and James Blunt, John Adams draws influences from the likes of honest songwriters such as James Morrison, Damien Rice and David Gray. Having spent nearly all his adult life as a songwriter playing gigs in venues across the UK as well as busking on the streets of Cardiff, John took a leap of faith in 2016 as he quit his job as a Mathematics teacher to perform full time. The gamble paid off, and John has gone on to support acts such as Take That, Lemar, Stooshe, T’Pau and Katherine Jenkins.

“Kiss Every Stranger” follows the release of John Adams’s EP “No White Lies” last year which peaked at No.2 in the iTunes Singer-Songwriter charts. His last album “You Never Know Who’s Listening”, released in 2018 has received praise from media and fans alike, accumulating over 9.7 million streams on Spotify. A lyric video for “Kiss Every Stranger” will be released on February 3rd as well as an official music video directed by Rhys Davies from Furball Films on February 13th.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
