Richmond based singer-songwriter Adam Lanceley will donate the proceeds from his latest EP Back To The Sunshine to the Brain & Spine Foundation.
After being involved in a serious car accident aged 10, Adam was fighting for his life when his parents were told it was unlikely that he will ever be able to walk or talk again. Against all odds and through showing remarkable determination, he proved the doctors wrong – he has since raised money for the charity through numerous 10k runs and even competed in the London Marathon in 2012.
In his latest fundraising effort, Adam is donating all proceeds from his latest EP to the Brain & Spine Foundation.
At the time of his accident, not a lot of research had been done into the treatment of brain and spinal injuries, so Adam knows first-hand how traumatic the recovery process can be when the expertise is simply not available. The Brain & Spine foundation was also in its formative stages when Adam sustained his injuries, hence his dedication in raising money for them.
Adam has been compared to the likes of Lou Reed, Nick Cave and Johnny Cash, he takes inspiration from a wide range of artists including R.E.M, Roy Orbison and most significantly, The Beach Boys. As a result, Adam creates a genre-bending blend of music that evokes a definitive sunny, West Coast vibe.
The Back To The Sunshine EP will be released on 7 April.
