June 2023: Adam recently finished creating all the music to Channel 4's new daytime TV series Narrow Escapes, which will be hitting your screens at some point in the near future.
A far cry from some of the more harrowing and dark scores of recent projects, this is a light hearted, plucky, fun and breezy accompaniment to those who call the the UK’s canal network their home. Once again teaming up with Bowled Over Media and the wonderful team at Ponder Create, this will no doubt be an utterly charming, thoroughly addictive and entertaining show.
Radio Times Awards
June 2023: Needless to say that we are all very proud to announce that Good Grief has been declared the winner of the Radio Times Readers' Award 2023.
It was an honour and a pleasure to have created the score to such a glorious program, which has brought so much help, support and light to so many who have watched it.
Further congratulations and raising of glasses to the Rev Richard Coles and all those at Bowled Over Media.
Ten Dollar Death Trip
October 2022 saw the release of Ten Dollar Death Trip on Netflix – Directed by Dominic Streeter and created by the glorious team at Hide & Seek Media, the documentary takes a raw and truly harrowing look into the fentanyl crisis in Canada and the US.
Adam scored the entirety of the incredibly gritty and bleak soundtrack to the film, which takes a dark journey through the unforgiving streets of Downtown East Side and the incredible, heart warming characters that unfortunately are forced to live rough there.
Earlier in 2022 Adam composed and produced all the music to Channel 4's up coming, hour long documentary 'Good Grief' - produced by Heidi Gomes and directed by Chris Hailes (Bowled Over media productions). Presented by Reverend Richard Coles, who's husband David died at the end 2019, the show explores the subject of grief and how to live with it positively. From unusual laughter yoga, a Grief Cruise in Miami, high energy boxing and exhilarating surfing to playing with therapy alpacas and dining with others who are grieving, Rev Coles embraces every opportunity as he discovers a tool-kit of therapies and ideas to help him explore a good grief.
Good Grief will air on channel 4 on the 8th August 2022 at 10pm.
Half a Million Steps and other films...
In 2019 Adam scored the beautifully shot, Australian feature: Half a Million Steps – an uplifting film which went on to play a big role in securing $305 million in government funding and in changing current drug policy in the country. While 2020 saw the release of Ten Dollar Death Trip. This led on to being asked to create the music for a short animation for the Global Commission on Drug Policy in 2021. A trailer/sizzle reel for the next film Adam will be working on: Feel the Burn, which is currently in production can be found online. This documentary follows a UK firefighter on a soul searching, cinematic journey across the Saharan Desert, aiming to break down the stigma around men's mental health.
Film music aside, he has also written and produced material for various TV adverts for companies such as Boux Avenue, Ashton & Parson's and Cryotag, as well as several pieces for the Marine Conservation Society, including their Great British Beach Clean and Micro Fibre campaigns.
Amongst the hundreds of songs Adam has written, he was commissioned by the company Lingwiser to compose 'Irregular Verbs' – a light hearted and ridiculously catchy tune to aid people learning English as a second language, which has already built up over 5.1 million views on YouTube.
Adam has also created music for various record labels, including subsidiaries of BMG, APM, Lemon Cake and The Hit Music Group.
Adam is also the co founder of the voice over and production company 'Daffurn Sounds' who have worked on a huge variety of projects, including audio for companies such as Red Bull, Shell, The Anne Frank House and many others. You can find out more about the services offered at www.daffurnsounds.com
