Join Pipapelli and their worldwide fans in welcoming Graeme Adams and Tink Lawing.
Growing up in Atlanta, GA, Graeme has always been an avid music fan and credits an array of artists to his influences. Graeme started playing saxophone in bands soon after he first picked it up at the age of eleven. He left for college in Memphis, Tennessee where he learned the art of the delta blues. Graeme eventually returned and joined the Disregardables, a band from Atlanta, Georgia. For 2 years, he toured up and down the east coast and out to Dallas, Texas, playing in the fast paced horn driven band. This gave Graeme the experience to perform on stage with many different type of musical acts he and his band mates met on the road. Graeme expanded his abilities during this time and began singing and playing guitar and formed Secret Weapon. As the front man, Graeme donned many different hats in the band from singing, to playing saxophone, and supporting the band with rhythm guitar. Graeme is happy to bring his talents to the WNC area and is excited to be playing with Pipapelli.
North Carolina native Tink holds down the bass line, throwing in T-bones here and there, Tink has been playing both the bass guitar and trombone for over 26 years. Tink also plays guitar, keyboards and sings as well. He is an avid hiker, dog lover, and loves riding BMX bikes. He is experienced in all genres of music, with influences ranging from Rush to Glenn Miller. His style can best be described as progressive rock/fusion, but he's up for playing just about anything...and so the adventure continues.
