"[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

Project name

Adam Traum was a raised in Woodstock, N.Y, in a musical family with great musicians drifting in and out and helping to create his musical world view. He counts himself very fortunate to have had a front row seat to musical history and the chance to play with and watch truly inspirational musicians work their craft. From folk to rock, Traum soaked up Americana music and created a sound all his own!

“Music is in Adam Traum's blood. His father, Happy Traum, was a Greenwich Village folk music icon, who recorded with Pete Seeger, Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan. The younger Traum is a chip off the old block, yet he definitely puts his own stamp on roots music. The vocalist-guitarist's mix of folk, country, rockabilly and blues has made him one of the more intriguing entertainers on the Americana scene.”
