Adam Morford, Austin Morford, and Matt Skinner make up the eclectic band Tallgrass. This band delivers riveting melodies, three-piece harmonies, and transformative ways to provide sound. They are an auditory delight. The way they bend sound and structure songs are like a metamorphosis of music. It is conceptually built to delight and challenge what you have ever thought a song could be.
“Tallgrass was the first project I had been in that allowed me to be myself. My quest for sounds was encouraged.”
Adam goes beyond a drum kit and sticks. His musicianship showcases obscure objects and altering the methods of playing the kit. It is no rare sight to see him bust out various sizes of bows to stride across the symbols to make a melodic steel melody. Those sounds he has been encouraged to play have set him a sail on a discovery beyond just playing percussion. He has begun a design studio called Morfbeats where he creates original percussion pieces for others.
“This eventually led to the idea of me building percussion from scratch to produce sounds I wanted to hear and use. A few days after I began I started to make instruments with promising tones. From there I have just let my imagination run wild, and it has allowed for me to work and perform with some of my favorite musicians.”
“Be honest and sincere in what you do and you will find your true potential.”
