Adam Scone is a Hammond Organ specialist. The sound of the Hammond will get inside of your heart and pound out some emotion.
Scone transformed from a young wiz at the organ to a seasoned master due to a couple key factors: playing six nights a week gig at a classic organ lounge in Hells Kitchen, NYC gave him the foundation, and touring the world with Daptone Records artist Sugarman 3 exposed him to an international audience at the worlds top Music Festivals, which included Glastonbury in the UK, Montreaux Festival in Switzerland, and the North Sea Festival in the Netherlands.
Scone played in Jazz and Boogaloo Legend Lou Donaldson’s band at the Village Vanguard and the Blue Note in New York City. He was also selected a 4 time Jazz Ambassador by Lincoln Center & Kennedy Center for the Arts. a selection that took him to over 35 different countries to play organ. Then he directed his attention to the Organ sound in Rock and Roll, spending five years of relentless touring with southern rock masters JJ Grey & Mofro. Scone played the US’s top festivals including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Bumbershoot. Scone’s organ playing has appeared on over 50 albums.
Scone is developing his own band and working to produce and record organ music that will soon conquer the airwaves.
