Adrian D'Souza: Where Music isn't Just Played, It's Lived


Some musicians pick up an instrument; Adrian D'Souza was seemingly born with a guitar in his soul. From the first tentative chords that echoed through his childhood, music coursed through his veins. Two decades later, that youthful fascination has evolved into a driving force, shaping his world and propelling him forward. His journey is a testament to the transformative power of sound.


Adrian doesn't just recreate the music of his idols – he breathes new life into the legacy of rock legends, infuses rock guitar with his own fiery spirit, and crafts ethereal soundscapes that transport listeners to another realm entirely. His guitar is an extension of himself, a tool to channel raw emotion and ignite the crowd. It's a sight to behold when he steps on stage, completely immersed in the moment. That energy has carried him across continents through livestream television, and earned him recognition from a plethora of magazine articles including: Voyage LA, Canvas Rebel, and Bold Journey Magazines.


But there's more to Adrian than sold-out shows and glowing reviews. He's a storyteller, weaving his life experiences into his melodies. Perhaps it's the nostalgic riff inspired by a faded band poster in his childhood bedroom, or the impromptu midnight jam session with fellow musicians that gave birth to his most popular track. Adrian isn't just about technical perfection; he's about the messy, beautiful, human side of music-making.
His music is a conversation starter, a spark that ignites something within the listener. Whether you're a lifelong devotee of his genres or a curious newcomer, there's a thread in his sound that resonates. Maybe it's a melancholic rock lick that reminds you of a bittersweet memory, or a soaring solo that evokes a sense of limitless possibility. Adrian's guitar doesn't just play notes; it taps into something deeper, something universal.


Adrian thrives on the energy exchange between himself and his audience. He is a person that can get deep inside your soul and transform your life with his electricity and charisma. It’s one of these people that once you get to know in person you can never forget. It’s those moments after a show, whether it's a quick chat at the merch table or a heartfelt online message, that keep him fueled and inspired. He loves hearing how his music connects with people –the way a particular solo made them dance uncontrollably, or a slow ambient riff brought back a cherished memory. These stories are like fuel to his creative fire.


Don't expect everything about Adrian to be serious guitar licks and soulful lyrics, though. This guy has a wickedly dry sense of humor, the kind that catches you by surprise and leaves you grinning. And if you happen to be catching one of his shows, keep an eye out during soundcheck – he has a tendency to break into completely random 80s pop songs that have the whole crew laughing. It's a reminder that behind the rockstar stage persona, there's a down-to-earth guy who doesn't take himself too seriously and would like to communicate with you either online or for a great night out. /contact

ALBUM DESCRIPTION:

"Night and Day" is my first album creation consisting of beautiful ambient landscapes, the sounds of the electric guitar, distortion, synth and atmospheric sounds, all coming together from my pedalboard and gear in a live setting.

The songs "The First Time" and "Running to Stand Still" are covers, of newly created versions of the tracks, played completely differently than the two found on my single's series. All other tracks are original compositions.

There was no post-editing performed on this album. All performances were created in one or two takes, and recorded in my Professional Studio using state of the art technological equipment.

The album was produced during the COVID-19 pandemic period which had effected most of the world, so I hold this creation dear to me being somewhat of an escape from the past couple of years of lockdowns in my city.

Listen to it when you want to escape from the daily grind life throws your way, and come out refreshed and renewed.

You can find more of my musical creations for sale on my Bandcamp Website by clicking the Bandcamp hotlink button at the very top center of this page.

In friendship and music....
