Adam McGrath is a folk singer stationed wherever he lands. He travels the state highways and byways of New Zealand, Australia, Europe and parts beyond, singing songs and offering up low rent barroom philosophy with his band of misfits and chancers, The Eastern.

He hopes for the best, prepares for the worst and believes in the poetry of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles and the fury of the word on the page. He lives alone, cooks infrequently and is scared of flags that blow to the right. He is happiest in front of a jukebox as the call for last drinks is given, because jukeboxes are getting harder to find, and the last drinks call means the lock in is ever closer.

His songs have gathered a clutch of good reviews in NZ and overseas, he's been nominated for a couple of serious music awards (including the Apra Silver Scroll), Graham Reid from the NZ Herald called him 'NZ's toughest-minded songwriter' and Barry Saunders from The Warratahs simply described him as "The Truth".
