Brett Adams


Brett Adams returned to NZ in 2003 after a 14-year stint in the UK. He travelled there as guitarist for successful NZ 80s pop band The Mockers. After the demise of The Mockers, Adams formed The Julie Dolphin with fellow ex-pat Dianne Swann. Things went well for them and they were invited to tour as support act for Radiohead. On their return from the UK they formed The Bads. In this incarnation, they have released three albums with another to be released soon. They have written and performed music for NZ television, including the popular series Hunger for The Wild, and more recently, Coasters. Brett has spent the last ten years as Tim Finn’s main man on guitar, playing on Tim’s studio albums The Conversation and The View is Worth the Climb. Brett has also played and toured with artistes such as Rodriguez, Gin Wigmore, and Don Walker, and performed in the theatre productions White Cloud, Poor Boy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Chicago.
