"I would go to gigs and see massive crowds of people reacting to something which essentially came out of someone's head in their bedroom," remembers singer and multi-instrumentalist Adam French. "I thought to myself: 'If they can do that, I can do that. I'm definitely going to do that'." Now the 23 year old French is ready to fulfil his own prophecy. The young Bowie look-a-like taught himself to play guitar at the age of 10 and was born and raised in Congleton, just outside Manchester where he worked in the local record store and cut his teeth on the northern gig circuit in various guises. Now French has established himself as a solo writer and producer capable of crafting flawless songs in his London home studio. Having already gone down a storm playing the BBC Introducing stage at Leeds and Reading festivals, as well as recent support slots with Frances, Rat Boy and Jack Garratt, Adam sets out on his first headline tour in Jan 2016 including shows in London, New York and L.A – dates below. 22nd Jan – Manchester, Deaf Institute
