Adrian Scaife


Songwriter, singer, I play harmonica, and guitar (badly). Writing songs does something for me that nothing else does, and I need it to feel complete in myself. Sometimes I just like the challenge of building something from an lyrical idea, or a chord progression or melody, occasionally it just falls out in one go words and melody all together like it was already there and I just channeled it. I have broad musical tastes, I write songs in many styles. I've been in a few bands over the years. I like to work with other musicians to write and record as the whole always ends up greater than the sum of its parts.
