About

Adam Zuniga often performs guitar-based original music as a solo guitarist or with the trio, Adam Zuniga Project. Readers of the San Antonio Current voted Adam Zuniga Best Instrumentalist (2nd), two years in a row in their annual Best of San Antonio Music issues (2013, 2014). Following a string of performances in Manhattan, the NY-based music blog, Noise Beneath the Apple, wrote, “Either Adam Zuniga is not a traditional world artist, or he is changing the very face of the genre upside down. Either way, it is a victory.”

Adam’s latest guitar album, Nightfall, demonstrates a diverse production approach and represents years of tone exploration with both nylon-string and electric guitars. The result is an immersive listening experience that is, at times, beat-driven and awash with effects-laden instrumentation. Although not associated with any one genre, the guitar’s reverb-drenched harmonics and vocalesque melodies can be heard over neighboring (and not so neighboring) styles such as chill, lo-fi, post-rock, and ambient music.

His musical history includes performing in tribute acts (Bowie, Beatles, and Red Hot Chili Peppers), as a session musician, and with bands within the Austin music scene such as Dream II Dream, Hours Quiet, and Love Hate Affair. Since 2006, Adam has continued to provide his brand of instrumental music to a broad spectrum of audiences, including corporate events, art exhibits, and restaurant and hotel residencies. At present, you can hear Adam at his residencies at Embassy Landmark and Hard Rock Cafe in San Antonio, Texas.

Hours Quiet

Indietronic/Modern Alternative

“Filled to the brim with 80’s synth licks and dramatic vocals, The Hours Quiet conjures up images of Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Austin’s own Night Drive. More dance party than shoegaze, songs like ‘Bring You Down’ bounce with funk guitar and percussion, while ‘Consciousness’ introduces guitar and pounding guitar crunch for a slower, more theatrical vibe. A diverse and interesting band that honors our electronic past, while avoiding the retro act stigma.”
