As described on his older MySpace profile (which is currently in hiatus), his father, a former DJ, exposed Adam to the best music of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. With over 15 years experience and training in professional musical theatre, he consistently delivers commanding, high-energy live performances. His creative turning point was being cast in a six-month European tour of the “Musical Hair “. Adam dove into hippie era history and paralleled with his very own summer of love which completed him with a major spiritual expansion. Adam returned to Hollywood inspired to make his mark as a contemporary musical artist. He began to make appearances as a glam rock soul alter ego in The Zodiac Show at The Henry Fonda Music Box and Club Makeup at the Key Club. He has even performed for audiences at the Burning Man art festival the past two years. After gaining credibility on the club circuit, he landed his breakout theatre role. Opposite Val Kilmer’s Moses, he was cast as Joshua in
The Ten Commandments at the Kodak Theatre in 2004. His tour de force performance became a press and crowd favorite with the New York Times calling him the most consistent crowd-wowering and the LA Times stating that his personal sound and style (was) the best. After ‘The Ten Commandments,’ Adam was cast to understudy in the 1st National Broadway Tour of Wicked. While on tour for six months, he began collaborating with Composer/Guitarist Monte Pittman (Madonna, Prong). Today they have written over 20 songs as the alt/pop/rock band THE CITIZEN VEIN. They are currently working with Producer Malcolm Welsford and A&R Worldwide recording a series of songs. Right before American Idol, Adam was appearing at the Pantages Theatre in the LA Company of Wicked, and working with his unsigned band. In possession of a high tenor power voice, Adam possibilities are endless. A musical chameleon, he seamlessly maneuvers in and out of pop, rock, R&B, soul, electronic, and adult contemporary genres. Influences include, Freddy Mercury, Robert Plant, Donny Hathaway, Steve Perry. Moreover, Adam has also SELF-produced a growing number of original electro-pop tracks. Lambert looks forward to collaborations leading to a unique new fusion of his personal style and impressive talent.
Now, Adam Lambert is on his way to become the NEXT American Idol!!
