Adam Tvrdy is a guitarist and composer with a multi-genre and intense expression.

Adam plays guitar since age of six and later learns to play bass guitar and drums. Since his childhood he’s been influenced by blues and classic rock, especially by Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton. Later he discovered the music of Miles Davis and starts to fully focus on learning Jazz. His first main influences were guitar players Pat Metheny, George Benson, Wes Montgomery, and John Scofield.
