Adam Paananen

Born in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, Adam's music career began in Grande Prairie, Alberta, as the co-founder and drummer for rock group Torrance Family Band in 2011, during which time he attended the Music Interactive Digital Design Program at Grande Prairie Regional College and received two years of bass guitar lessons from Vancouver-based session bassist Rene Worst. Soon after graduation in 2013, his touring life began on his 20th birthday as the bassist for country/rock group Smokin' Ace. He went on to join as the percussionist for Canadian reggae group Tasman Jude, which brought him on multiple tours spanning western and eastern Canada, as well as the band's first Australian tour, from September 2013-October 2014.

During this time and since, Adam has performed and traveled with many other groups on multiple instruments, including Cindy Paul, Range Road Ramblers, Newcastle Kings, Nikki Meeres, Sic' Machine, Arrival of Autumn, Alyssa Strand, and The Privateers. He has performed at high profile festivals such as Boonstock 2013 and 2014, Easterfest 2014, Bud Country Fever 2015, and has opened for artists like Krome, Matt Blais, Unwed Mothers, The Red Cannons, illScarlett, Beenie Man, Mr. Vegas, QQ, Aaron Carter, and One Bad Son. Adam has released full length albums with Torrance Family Band and Tasman Jude, as well as performed on singles in support of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada and the Conspiracy of Hope suicide awareness campaign. Since 2015, he began both his sound technician career and solo artist career, covering a wide range of genres and writing original songs.

Upon Adam's 2016 re-location to Edmonton, Alberta, he co-founded progressive rock/metal group Revelant as the singer and guitarist, and is continuing his solo acoustic project, working on a regular basis with both projects and as a session player with various other groups.
