Adam is a classically trained pianist with a prolific aptitude for musical language. He began playing professionally in middle school and has performed in and out of the country with some of the most renowned jazz artists. He formed the Adam & Kizzie band with wife, Nell, releasing 3 albums of co-written original music, topping charts, touring nationally, and winning multiple awards.
Married couple, Adam & Nell Ledbetter, were close friends in high school whose paths separated after graduation. Nell sang for Disney for years in Tokyo & The Bahamas. Meanwhile, Adam focused primarily on straight-ahead jazz piano which took him to Brazil, Italy, and France. In 2011, the old friends were reunited unexpectedly and an incredible love bloomed. Their band, Adam & Kizzie, was formed six months after they were married and together they combined the best of all their individual influences into a special blend they call EEDO (short for frEEDOm).
The band placed 3rd in Usher's 2017 MEGASTAR Talent Competition! Voted into the top 5 out of 7,000+ contestants worldwide, they were given the chance to meet and be mentored by Usher himself in LA.
Adam & Nell have shared the stage with Brik.Liam, Robert "Sput" Searight, The Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, The Funky Knuckles, KNOWER, Sean C. Johnson and many more. In early 2014, the band signed with Ropeadope Records with whom they released two chart topping albums. Their third album, The Book of EEDO Vol. 3: THREEDO (2018), peaked at #12 in the iTunes charts. Their hit song from the album, 'Breathless', was one of the featured songs on NPR's 2018 national Heavy Rotation playlist.
The couple moved to Los Angeles in 2019 where they started their family, becoming the extremely proud parents of two beautiful girls, Juno Janell & Rumi Renee Ledbetter. The couple has set out on new musical adventures in their new hometown despite the pandemic. Adam has quickly become a well-sought after jazz pianist in town, meanwhile Nell is preparing for her headlining debut at the World Stage at the end of July.
