Adam Klein is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter from Athens, GA, though he currently lives in Atlanta. Adam has released seven albums, but has also traveled the world doing volunteer work and lived in West Africa for several years. In Mali, he had a radio show that was broadcast over a large swath of remote villages at the edge of the Sahara. He also has a budding acting career in the Atlanta film industry and an album on the way this Spring.
We talk about growing up Orthodox in Athens, GA, living and working in Mali, and making records with his heroes.
You can see portions of a documentary about making Adam's record of West African songs here:
