Wanderer is a brand new solo artist named Adam Simmons whose genre is cinematic pop. He just came out with an EP called City. The EP features 5 songs; Call Me Crazy, Only in the Night, Driving, Make You Feel and Welcome to the Wild. I love listening to every song of his new EP but if I had to choose I would choose Only in the Night or Driving.
Why did you choose the name Wanderer?
The name was born out of an idea I’d been toying with for a while. I think people my age and in this generation feel like we’re not sure where to go, or what to do. I want to capture the possibility of that, and reflect it through my music. Everyone is on their own journey, and I want to help narrate that with my songs. I liked the name over using my own name. I think it’s mysterious and can become more than just one person that way.
Tell me briefly about yourself.
I am 25 years old, and live in Tempe, AZ.
Why did you decide to play the genre you do?
I come from many different styles. My music will evolve and change just as I do. I love the production sounds of the 80s, and the melodic sense of pop music. But I also love other genres that I will explore in the future.
Tell me a history about your music.
