Adam Traum

 

Adam Traum is an interpreter of traditional roots music and draws on those styles in his songwriting as well. He cross-pollinates Americana genres, blending folk, blues, bluegrass, rockabilly and country-blues music. When Traum performs he brings a warmth to the stage and puts on a well-polished show, whether he is playing as a solo artist at an intimate house concert or for a festival crowd backed by his potent band.

Adam’s influences include Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, John Hiatt, Steve Earle, Mississippi John Hurt and Rev. Gary Davis, to name a few. Traum gigs and teaches throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. He has two instructional DVD guitar lessons on Homespun Tapes. His CD, "Meant To Be" (2006), celebrates the diversity in his songwriting, which incorporates story-driven songs, humor and catchy guitar riffs. Traum's newest release, "Just Like Home" (2012), is an all-acoustic collection of songs with an intimate feel, paying tribute to his musical heritage. His trio The Mosey Boys have a newly released CD called "One-takes."

The Mosey Boys

The Mosey Boys are a musical force to be reckoned with! The Sonoma-based acoustic power trio featuring Adam Traum on guitar and vocals, David Thom on mandolin, vocals and guitar and Jack Hines on bass and vocals, seamlessly cross-pollinates Americana genres featuring bluegrass, country blues, rockabilly and folk styles.

 

Mosey Boys

"[Adam Traum's] guitar playing will make you want to learn his guitar licks, and the songs are enjoyable-by turns free-wheeling, sardonic or plaintive, and always offering the release and redemption that keep us coming back to the folk-blues mother lode"

- Phil Catalfo, Acoustic Guitar Magazine
