In 1993 Amy walked into "The Blue Guitar" in Stillwater, Minnesota and into Mark’s life to perform at an open-mic. Amy was the voice for "I’M FLYING" It was love at first hear, and the rest is herstory and history. "I had a wonderful childhood. Mom and Dad loved music and they both played the piano and sang. For fun sometimes Dad recorded himself playing and singing. I always thought that he should be on the Perry Como show. Like a lot of kids, I took piano lessons for several years. What I learned really helped me when I traded playing air-guitar with the Beatles for the real thing. In my early teens my older sister gave me her old six-string but I found it hard to play, so I kind of gave up. Then she came home from college with her new12-string and wow! I played it whenever I could. This colorful dream started to unfold, like realizing a true passion. Mark Edward Adams began harmonizing in the womb with his mother Virginia Adams in 1951. Virginia, grandmother Susan, father Ed, sisters Beth and Mary, brother Tom, and the young Mark performed at churches and service clubs in and around Marshalltown, Iowa as The Adams Family Singers. The first song Mark recalls writing was VOTE FOR BARRY, during the 1964 Presidential campaign. He also remembers his knees nervously knocking underneath his robe during his solo for the Central Junior High Chorus Christmas Pageant. At age 16, after years of struggling with piano and violin, Mark got his first guitar, and began writing and performing his own songs publicly. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You are all invited to hear the rest of their story.
