Biography

Chicago’s very own Adam Emil, made his debut performance at Allstate Arena on October 14th, in the nationwide I LOVE THE 90’s tour along side his band mates Bryan Abrams and Mark Calderon of COLOR ME BADD. Looking up into the bright lights of the concert stage and feeling the buzz of the audience around him, Adam Emil knew one day he would be taking the stage in front of the crowd at Allstate Arena; that day is here. Performing at the venue in Rosemont is both a career milestone and a blessing for Adam, he says, “If you put your mind to something and do the hard work you can make your dreams come true!” Through his persistence, this talented rising star caught the attention of Color Me Badd in December of 2014. Since then, he has been touring internationally, meeting both fans and industry legends and his passion for music
continues to thrive. Adam’s tenacity will not allow him pass up the opportunity to learn or develop his craft in some way. Just recently he found himself backstage with Stevie Wonder, his biggest musical influence, and seized the opportunity by asking advice on songwriting, transforming a brief meeting in to an in-depth
conversation. 

 When he’s not performing on stage you can find him working on new music in the studio, involved in volunteer work in the community, or spending time with the people he loves the most. Chicago has always been home for Adam Emil and he is thrilled to see his fans supporting his hometown return.

To his fans on twitter, he recently posted, “Don’t waste another minute not following your heart and your dreams!” With every action he is steadily making his dreams a reality, and it is an inspiring journey to watch! His songs are available via iTunes and look for a new album set to be released before the end of the year.

The I love the 90’s tour has been travelling nationwide with scheduled performances by Vanilla Ice, Salt N Pepa, All-4-One, Adam Emil, Coolio, Tone Loc, Rob Base and Young MC.
