#STL #MUSIC Artist Spotlight: Neil & Adam, #Pop #PopRock Artist ( Twitter handle:@neiladammusic )

Meet pop, pop-rock artists Neil McCloskey and Adam Hilligardt. Two musicians from the Kirkwood area that come from a family that has a history of creating music. Neil and Adam are currently recording an EP locally at Sawhorse Studios in South City which they plan to release late this summer. Their passion comes from the love of songwriting and the joy of touching people through the magic of music. Adam inherited a talent and instruction from his father who once worked for Motown Records among artists who are now household names. Neil's inspiration came from his Godfather who played the drums for Reba McEntire until his life was cut short along with seven other gifted and outstanding musicians in a plane crash in 1991. From the first time they hung out together their guitars were present. They always are and have been since. Neil and Adam have always been inspired by great writers in their lives and are driven to help inspire and touch listeners or writers alike. A brief list of the some artists who have inspired them include: Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Peter Gabriel, Colin Hay, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Jeff Lynne and The Who. The duo have released singles via AMAdea Music, Bongo Boy Records and LMC Records. Visit their website HERE for a link to purchase their music and keep up to date with them. Currently, they are in the top 100 on the Euro Indie Music Chart. In addition, their single, 'Everything Is Alright' received airplay on national UK TV (ITV's 'This Morning'). Let's shine a light on them, open our ears and see what they have in store for us, shall we?
