The ACM-nominated guitarist behind almost fifty US #1 hit songs, Nashville’s Adam Shoenfeld, is back with an optimistic new solo track, ‘Breadcrumbs of Hope’. On the release of his first new music since last year’s 10-track album ‘All The Birds Sing’, Shoenfeld shared, “I have hope that there is still enough good and love in this world to conquer the evil and hatred we’ve seen in recent years. The ones that fuel division are the problem. We are constantly bombarded with the bad, but we have to stay strong and have each other’s backs… bombard the bad with the good. We have to find the glimmers of hope, those ‘breadcrumbs’. There is a trail of peace, love, and harmony that can exist and hopefully, one day, bring people together. That’s what ‘Breadcrumbs of Hope’ means to me.”
Co-writer Michael Hunter Ochs added, “When we talk about hope often we are looked at as naive or idealistic. This song is here to say… hope is real and it is everything. And with the simplest of gestures anyone – you, me, a nameless stranger on the street – can be that tiny spark of hope that could make a difference in someone’s life.”
Shoenfeld continues to collaborate with his family, with his daughters joining him on backing vocals, and wife Katie Cook serving as the track’s producer.
Since holding a guitar at 4 years old, and writing his first song at 14, music has always been central to Adam Shoenfeld’s life. Influenced by a broad range of artists from Stevie Wonder and The Beatles to Metallica and Muddy Waters, he made the move from New Jersey to Nashville to play in a rock band at the age of 19, before long being brought into one of Nashville’s top studios as a house musician. In the years since, he’s played on over 500 albums, including over 45 #1 hit singles, for artists you won’t normally find on these hallowed pages like Luke Bryan, Kelsea Ballerini, Cody Johnson and Dan + Shay, and his songwriting credits include Faith Hill’s #1 ‘Mississippi Girl’. Still, we are easy going types here at AUK Towers – we know a good song when we hear it!
