Adam Ellis is an extremely talented guitar player, born in southern England in 1984, he grew up being heavily influenced by his Father David Ellis, travelled around on his dads gigs always wanting to be part of the show, and soon picked up a guitar at the tender age of 7 years old, Adam began to learn his first guitar instrumental, Foot Tapper by The Shadows, entering countless talent shows with his brother Ben Ellis who started out playing drums. The two brothers went on to form several bands eventually settling as a guitar duo called K.I.N performing gigs all around the south of England
K.I.N eventually stopped gigging, which gave Adam an oportunity to start teaching his knowledge of guitar and writing his own guitar instrumentals, with huge influence's such as Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Andy Timmons, Joe Satriani, and John Petrucci (to name a few)
Adam entered an ernie ball/musicman competition at a music college in London, although he didnt win the main prize of a guitar scholarship at the college, he did come in a close second and won himself a £1000 discount off the course, unable to aford the extra £4000, he took it as a loss and just kept writing and recording at home, turning out world class melodies and solos such as Northern Lights, from his working project (Songs of The Universe)
