Adam Scott Glasspool performs slow, sad alt. folk inflected with tinges of ambient electronica. He has released 4 EPs of various styles and moods, undertaken three UK tours, performed three times at Glastonbury Festival, and does this with one guitar, recreating the complex arrangement of his songs with the help of a loop pedal. 

Adam Scott Glasspool first started going it alone in April 2015. After almost a decade in various bands, honing the craft of songwriting, Adam decided to step back from fuzzed up guitars and burbling synths and stripped it all down to just his guitar. The result was his debut EP 'On Dreams', a haunting and atmospheric collection of songs released to critical acclaim. 

The rest of the year saw Adam travelling up and down the country, performing the songs to people, where they seemed to take on a new life by way of a loop pedal. A free live recording was released in November 2015.

Inspired by this more structured yet complex approach Adam began recording again, creating a new EP, 'I Welcome the Flood'. Fans of 'On Dreams' will find familiar territory here, but also a progression and evolution of the sound. 'I Welcome the Flood' was released on February 15th 2016 and was accompanied by a UK tour.

Adam's third EP, The Atlantic, was released on October 23rd 2016. It was somewhat of a departure and was released as a surprise at Adam's last performance before a break from playing live. Adam used the time off to create his fourth EP, Any Joy. More electronic and sparse than previous releases, Any Joy was met to acclaim from fans and press, with Adam touring the UK for a third time shortly after its release.
