New Album

‘Exhibitions of the Malcontent’ was made in my basement in Mariposa, California. This music was inspired by the restless and the observant, the agitators and the mischief-makers, the day-dreamers and the night-thinkers. I wrote the songs, played the instruments, recorded, mixed, mastered, made tapes and stuck the labels on.

The album available on Cassette, CD or for download through Bandcamp with ‘pay what you want’ pricing. You can also stream it with Apple Music and  Spotify. Visit my ‘Music‘ page for details.

I hope you enjoy the album. See you soon.


Lockdown life is such a drag

Today, I’m sharing a new video for ‘I’m Not Ready For Suburbia’ on YouTube. My partner Alex and I had a lot of fun making it and we hope you enjoy it.

‘I’m Not Ready for Suburbia’ is from the album ‘Exhibitions of the Malcontent’, which is available for download through Bandcamp with ‘pay-what-you-want’ pricing. Today, July 3rd, Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share (they usually take 10-15%) on music downloads from hundreds of thousands of artists around the world, including me. The coronavirus outbreak has had a serious impact on performing artists’ income so we are very grateful to be able to sell our music online without fees.

If you prefer something you can hold, visit my ‘Music‘ page to order a CD with free shipping.

I hope you enjoy the video. See you soon.


Exhibitions of the Malcontent – The Show

In Exhibitions of the Malcontent, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Burns combines live music and storytelling for a celebration of DIY music. It’s about cheap guitars, making posters, recording in your bedroom, finding your voice and turning it up. It’s a journey off the main street, down an alley, stepping over puddles and broken glass to a dimly-lit room with a microphone and two speakers hanging from the ceiling. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll want to start a band.
