Adam Watts
The Noise Inside



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 14 tracks
Street Date: November 16, 2004


With 300 compositions featured on various television and motion picture soundtracks through MTV, TNT, Paramount Pictures, and Disney, a nomination for Singer/Songwriter of the Year for the LA Music Awards, and an EP under his belt, Adam Watts is beginning his career with a slight advantage over others. After his Meaningless Things EP, Adam Watts released his debut album The Noise Inside; although, the album in itself is not "noise" at all but a catchy and unique melody to one's ears.

Joined with BEC recordings (Jeremy Camp, Kutless, OC Supertones), Watts is one exceptional songwriter, producer (Jeremy Camp, the Supertones, Avalon), and singer; in essence a true solo artist. His debut album entitled The Noise Inside, produced by Watts himself, is a distinctively diverse album that is concrete and deeply impressive.

The Noise Inside starts with "Would Be a Loser" and flows into "God of Grace," which is the song that first caught my attention. With a semi-slow pop/rock feeling and personable lyrics - "I need you here, I feel you here, Lord I need you now" - this song stands out among others on the album. Another notable track would be "Meaningless Things," a more upbeat song. Later in the album you find the more folk-acoustic "Rescue Me" that seems out of place, but yet at the same time very fitting on this diverse album. Lyrically, this album is personable and, at the same time, extremely poetic and prolific. At the end of the album you find "Still," a slower song with a strong beat that adds a nice touch to finish off the record.

As a respected drummer/percussionist, producer, songwriter, singer, and poet, is there anything that Watts can't do in the music business? It will be interesting to follow how Watts' musical ability will grow with his future work.
