Musical theatre actor and singer-songwriter Adam Dickinson is set to release his latest single: ‘No Tears No Fears’. The original song, with accompanying music video, will be released on Friday 23rd July.
Hailing from Wigan in North-West England, the 26-year-old has been performing as Paul Simon in The Simon & Garfunkel Story: a critically acclaimed theatre production showcasing the duo’s illustrious careers and enduring songbook. After the international tour was called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Adam poured his heart into writing and recording five original songs.
“I have always dreamed of writing and recording my own music,” Adam said. “Despite the disappointment of the tour being halted indefinitely, I saw an opportunity to fulfill this life-long dream. I poured my heart and soul into five original songs and I am delighted with the response I have received so far.”
Adam was supported by an amazing band of musicians playing on this song and a very special family team to put together this video, filmed at the beautiful Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa in Chester. He especially credits his brother, Ryan of Palmhouse Media, with special thanks also to his girlfriend, Charlotte, who also appears in the music video.
‘No Tears No Fears’ is Adam’s second single and follows on from his self-published debut, ‘Last One Left’, which was released earlier this year.
Adam was born and raised in Wigan. At a young age, he discovered that he had a deep passion and love for singing and playing instruments. In 2017, Adam graduated with a Master’s degree from the prestigious Guildford School of Acting. He landed the role of Paul Simon in The Simon & Garfunkel Story: a concert-style theatre show about two young boys from Queens, New York who went on to become the world’s most successful music duo of all time.
This was the job that made him fall head over heels in love with their music, and folk music more generally. Today these, combined with his pre-existing pop and country influences, have become the essence of the music he writes.
