Adam Robertson, a 23-year-old new singer and songwriter in Chicago is paving the way with his hot new sound, and image to match. Robertson was born in Riverside, California and raised in Chicago, Illinois with his mother, father, and sister since age three. Robertson, who has been playing the piano since the age of six, describes his sound as, "R&B Soul, with a little bit of hip-hop influences." "When I'm in the studio recording, I feel like a rock star and I know it's right," Robertson says. With one previous album completed with his musical partner Chris G., Robertson is eagerly awaiting the release of his sophomore effort, tentatively scheduled for June 2008. Robertson credits his musical influences to Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley and Quincy Jones who have inspired him to "live life and be great." In November of 2006, Adam was crowned as an Apollo Legend. Another proud moment was when he won B.E.T.'s 'YA HEARD' new artist competition for his single "One and Only". This was a Valentine's Day song writing competition, and he won with a landslide victory of well over 20,000 votes from around the world. With also winning a singing competition in New Jersey, May of 2007, and becoming Chicago radio station, WGCI's first ever "Hometown Hero," Adam's career is off to a great start. Robertson is currently studying music at Olive Harvey College to educate himself on the business aspects of the music industry, and hopes to create a large enough buzz around his music to tour Chicagoland and eventually the world.
