Profile

Hobo Chic discovered his passion for music at an early age in the beautiful landscapes of rural Lancashire but moved to London to hone his natural talents and musical appreciation. He is inspired by many musical styles and artists ranging from soul legends like Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles, through funk artists James Brown and Prince, reggae maestro Bob Marley, to the contemporary acoustic sounds of Ed Sheeran and Ben Howard. Hobo Chic has taken the music he loves and developed his own powerful style and presence, putting his unique stamp on the music he performs and writes.


For the past three winters Hobo Chic has toured the French Alps as, entertaining all walks of life at hundreds of shows. He spends the rest of his year travelling and playing to enthusiastic audiences in many places. He has performed in the glitz and glamour and super yachts of Cannes film festival and multi million pound chalets of the French and Swiss Alps. He has supported well known artists such as Newton Faulkner, KT Tunstall and The Feeling at winter snow and music festivals; Altitude, Little World and Momentum Ski. Busking from the old cobbled streets of the French Riviera to the bustling pavements of London, Hobo Chic, a musical traveller is a hobo at heart and is in his element performing to audiences, large or small.

" Possibly the most amazing live performance I have ever seen. Will definitely be seeking you out when I head to the Alps in the future! "

" Had the pleasure of hearing Hobo Chic (with friends) again on Sunday the 10th November. Once again it was outstanding. Adam will be sorely missed here in the Cellar bar & other bars here in the Pendle area during the Ski season, but our loss is their gain. Come back soon & thanks for Redemption song, as good as Bobs any day of the week. "
