Meet Sean Patrick Adams

Not a “Homegrown Songwriter from Our Sweet Home Alabama” but a songwriter with an interesting story to tell.

Singer/Songwriter Sean Patrick Adams was born in Dallas, Texas, lived in the Panama Canal Zone for 17 years and now resides in Corning, New.York. He started playing guitar at age 14 but did not start writing songs until later in life.

“Well, I will say that the songs I write come from the heart. After losing my wife that I still loved very much to divorce, I started to write songs as a form of therapy for myself. I wrote down the good and bad feelings that I had and started composing songs that expressed the way I felt. This was a form of healing for me and I discovered purely by accident that my songs were a hit with all my friends. They could relate to the things I said. This was the beginning of an incredible journey for me!

Most of my first songs were about love, hate and hurt feelings…sad songs. I got past those feelings and started really learning how to write songs. I started exploring other genres and topics of expression in Christian Praise & Worship … songs about saving the planet… about life and death and the hurdles we sometime face by just living. I have survived and conquered depression, addiction and feeling that being adopted meant I was worthless.

Finally, I now feel that I’m coming into my own in life. I know who I am, what I want to accomplish. I’m still new to all of this but I’m very excited about what the future holds. I have been approached by a couple of music labels and producers to make my music mainstream.

My two best friends, who are awesome musicians, are in training for the ministry. I hope to work with them to help with suicide intervention for teens and young adults. I would also like to start or work with an organization or ministry to work with other adopted children who now feel as I used to feel. To help them understand that they are very special and God put them here for a reason.

Through deed or song, my goal is to reach as many people as I can to let them know that although life can be very hard never give up. There is always a way to change your stars if you try hard enough.” ~Sean Patrick Adams~
