About Mick Adams
Mick Adams's incredible voice, range, and power speak for themselves. Born in Columbus, Ohio, Adams began singing at three years old. By the age of eight, he was the only child singing with the local adult church choir. While in high school, he studied voice under Elizabeth Graham and was a featured soloist in his high school choir. Adams continued his vocal education studying voice under Ben Bollinger, whose other notable students included Karen and Richard Carpenter.
Not only is Adams a ringer for Mick Jagger, but he also brings Mick Jagger's intense energy to each performance. As a former lead vocalist for Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods—where he performed for Dick Clark—Adams has toured the country with the likes of Tommy James, The Turtles, The Monkees, The Association, The Lovin' Spoonful, The Buckinghams, Herman's Hermits, Ron Dante, the Rascals, and more. Other notable artists that Adams has performed with include Spencer Davis, Rick Springfield, Johnny Rivers, Neil Sedaka, America, and Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer Sam Moore.
Adams has recorded with Mark Kendall of Great White as well as Ronnie James Dio's guitarist, Tracy G, and has done voice-over work for MADD TV. He has also performed on various telethons, including Betty White’s pet telethon, Jerry Lewis’s MS telethon, and many others. Adams's band, Mick Adams and The Stones, has performed for everyone from Brad Pitt, Will Ferrell, Leslie Bibb, David Spade, Amy Adams, Flava Flav, Jack McBrayer, Judd Apatow, and Mark Cuban. They have been featured on national television multiple times, toured internationally, and have appeared on and recorded for AXS television’s The World's Greatest Tribute Bands. They have also been named one of the top ten tributes in the world by Backstage 360 magazine. Adams is endorsed by Mark Cuban, Ryan Seacrest, and former President of Atlantic Records Jerry Greenberg, who signed The Rolling Stones.
Windborne’s captivating show draws on the singers’ deep roots in traditions of vocal harmony, while the absolute uniqueness of their artistic approach brings old songs into the present. Known for the innovation of their arrangements, their harmonies are bold and anything but predictable.
With a 20-year background studying polyphonic music around the world, Lauren Breunig, Jeremy Carter-Gordon, Lynn Rowan, and Will Rowan share a vibrant energy onstage with a blending of voices that can only come from decades of friendship alongside dedicated practice. The ensemble shifts effortlessly between drastically different styles of music, drawing their audience along on a journey that spans continents and centuries, illuminating and expanding on the profound power and variation of the human voice. The singers educate as they entertain, sharing stories about their songs and explaining the context and characteristics of the styles in which they sing.
