Introducing Adam Corneal




 ADAM CORNEAL, is  a multi-talented (singer/songwriter), affable, and, if I can say so myself, easy on the eyes.


Adam has accomplished a lot in his short life, and it appears like there's a lot more in the plans for him. Adam took advantage of the opportunity to study at the world-renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston while studying music at the University of the West Indies. That's right, guys and gals, Adam studied music at the same university that produced the cream of the crop in the music industry, including John Mayer, Steven Tyler, and Quincy Jones.

At just 24 yrs old, Adam has accomplished so much in life, and it looks like there’s a lot more in the woodworks. While studying music at the University of the West Indies, Adam took the opportunity when it arose to study at the world-renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston. That’s right, guys and gals, Adam studied music at the same school that brought us the creme de la creme in the world of music: John Mayer, Steven Tyler, and Quincy Jones. WOW!

Adam is a unique Trinidadian artist. That is to say, Adam did not follow the 'traditional' path of a Trini artist. He isn't a calypso/soca performer, despite including the occasional steelpan in his work. His approach is akin to what we call ‘ah callaloo' in Trinidad, a melting pot or mixture of cultures.


So, what exactly is his style, and what does he enjoy, you might wonder. Ballads, funk, and R&B are among his favourite genres. His music is a lovely mix of all three. It's difficult to imagine, isn't it? Think artists such as Maroon 5, Michael Jackson, and Bruno Mars. In Boston, Massachusetts, Adam is well-known in the wedding industry. He   has been seen performing on Martha's Vineyard, a famous island in the US.


   Yes, the Martha's Vineyard, where celebrities such as Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, and John Wallace spend their vacations. And where the median home price is 54% higher than  the rest of the state of Massachusetts.


Adam's single 'DC (I Don't Care)' was released on January, 2021. When you hear this energetic music, you automatically rise to your feet to demonstrate your best dance movements (even if you have two left feet). IDC (produced by JM Ferreiras, mixed and mastered by Gareth Tong) is a clear 2021 contender... I dare you to stay seated when it starts.

So, for the time being, Adam has a devoted and active fan following that is rapidly expanding. ...In less than two weeks, ‘Jealous' (a cover) received 16,000 Facebook views! His average listener is between the ages of 18 and 24, and while his audience is a good mix of Trini and Americans, the Americans have grabbed the lead.


However, Trinis purchase and download more than US listeners. And it's safe to say that his music is equally popular in Trinidad and the United States.
