Adam Zwig

Adam Zwig

Adam Zwig is a modern day renaissance man: part wandering minstrel, part scientist, part healer. Acclaimed for his insightful folk-pop songs and dynamic performances throughout the U.S. and around the globe, the multi-talented performer’s groundbreaking work as a psychotherapist goes hand in hand with, and is an extension of, his deep musical aesthetic. His unique brand of psychologically and spiritually infused songs has landed him five Top Ten hit singles on the U.S Adult Contemporary charts, feature articles in national media outlets such as CNBC, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, Forbes, Hollywood Reporter, Gibson and many others, and a current international buzz over his controversial video for the hit single, "Everybody Love". He has released seven albums and his songs can regularly be heard on NBC, Fox, and Fuel TV.

"….like most brilliant, socially conscious blues and folk singer-songwriters, Zwig prefers to let his songs speak for themselves." - Newswires

Because his concerts and workshops convey the very same messages, the Portland, Oregon based Zwig--who has been favorably compared throughout his career to Bob Dylan and Neil Young--was once dubbed by Seattle Musician as a “rock and roll guru” and “professor of rockology.” Committed to lighting the divine spark in his students and fans, Zwig sees the seamless blend of his music and therapy as reflections of his mission as a “psycho spiritual pyromaniac. Zwig's band includes Brian Macleod on drums (Sheryl Crow, Tears for Fears, Madonna), and Erik Kertes on bass (Josh Kelly, Michael Buble), and they are on tour in 2013 promoting his new album, Visions Of The Shimmering Night, (produced by Stuart Sikes and David Bianco). For all who seek a better world Adam Zwig offers rich, mind-inspiration.


Science! is an award winning acoustic duo comprised of Justin Stang and Jim Elenteny. Their recent studio debut EP includes Blind Melon's Glen Graham on drums and their music has been featured in Fall 2012 on PBS television's Roadtrip Nation. Moreover, they were awarded the Weekly Volcano's 2013 Best New Record, 2012 Best New Band (Olympia, WA) award and are what Quyen Shanahan (of WXPN, Philadelphia) is calling "Riveting acoustic music...a perfectly simple, universal and truthful roots band." They are featured in the January issue of High Times Magazine as the "Unsigned Band of The Month". Their witty and fun tune about Seattle ("Seattle Song") was the anthem on Jet City Stream with Marco Collins and Shawn Stewart and was named one of their "Best New Tracks of The Week". It has also been featured on KING 5 TV- Seattle's New Day Northwest, Evening Magazine, The Bob Rivers Show - (95.7 KJR FM Seattle) and The Marty Riemer Show. In March 2014, they signed to London Tone Music Group.
