While he was born in London, England, singer-songwriter Adam Masterson spends a lot of time in NYC writing and performing his music. He taught himself guitar and was writing his own songs by the age of 16. His debut album, One Tale Too Many, was released on Gravity/BMG to much critical acclaim. Signed by Nick Stewart and produced by Mick Glossop, One Tale Too Many featured many Van Morrison alumni and session musicians. Masterson has also performed with Mick Jones of The Clash, Patti Smith, and Joseph Arthur.
