Adam French, a self-taught multi-instrumentalist from Cheshire, shares ‘Keep It Together’, the lead single from from his debut album the back foot and the rapture.
Growing up in Congleton in the North West (between Manchester & Stoke) Adam creates songs of depth, and honesty. He cut his teeth on the local gig circuit before the opportunities of the capital lured him to London, where he now lives.
Following two EP releases – including a viral cover of Walkmen’s ‘The Rat’ – Adam put himself on the radars of a diverse number of icons, from Dua Lipa to Tony Hawk. He would also immediately pick up critical support from the likes of BBC Introducing and Communion Live (Catfish and the Bottlemen, Michael Kiwanuka, Ben Howard).

The growing attention seems well-earned following his critically-acclaimed recent singles ‘Wanna Be Here’ – racing to over 90k views on YouTube – and ‘The Only Living Thing’ with an inspired and touching performance from actor Charley Palmer Rothwell (Dunkirk, Darkest Hour).
French’s latest track has a driving melodic chorus that defines overcoming life’s challenges with the lyrics ‘I Keep it Together and I hold it, hold it, hold it to Keep it Together’
Speaking on the new track, Adam states, “‘Keep It Together’ is very much an optimistic reminder that things get better with time. Battling your demons can be incredibly difficult, but this song serves as an internal pep-talk, an uplifting monologue if you like.”
