Los Angeles based pianist, keyboardist, and composer Adam Hersh was born in Castaic, CA. Since graduating from California State University, Northridge, Adam has been a regular on the LA jazz scene as both a leader and sideman, performing with highly regarded musicians such as Bob Sheppard, Mike Moreno, Munir Hossn, Gary Novak, Andrew Renfroe, Gene Coye, Josh Nelson, Ron Stout, Jon Hatamiya, Charles Ruggiero and Ben Van Gelder. He was selected as a Ravinia Composition Fellow in 2017, and in 2019 he accompanied vocalist Nalaya Brown for a three month residency at Quincy Jones’ Q’s Bar and Lounge in Dubai, UAE.

Adam released his debut album House Roots in 2020. This synthesizer focused jazz fusion record was recorded entirely remotely with LA heavy hitters such as Gene Coye, Max Gerl, Logan Kane, Anthony Fung, Myles Martin and Marcel Camargo. In 2022 and 2023, he undertook two large transcription and performance projects. The first was a full transcription of Wayne Shorter’s album High Life, a Grammy Award winning orchestral and fusion album released in 1995. The second project focused on a selection of compositions from iconic fusion guitarist Allan Holdsworth, which Adam performed with long-time collaborator, Gary Novak, on the drums.

His second album, Tornado Watch, is due for release at the end of 2023, and is a live sextet recording featuring 12 original compositions and arrangements. Adam’s regular projects as a sideman include playing with bassist Mauricio Morales, recorder and vocalist Tali Rubenstein, drummer Tim Rachbach’s quartet, trumpet player Everett Kelly’s band Sicnarf, the Steve Huffsteter Big Band and the Kevin Van Den Elzen Big band.
