ADÉ has the most beautiful, beautiful voice, and the most wonderful spirit.
He has such a deep knowledge of singing, and music. And he is the first person I recommend to anyone I meet who needs lessons, or advice about being an artist in the music industry.
Uncle ADÉ was one of the people who mentored, supported and championed me at the very start of my career. He has such a great music business network, and such a great music business mind. And when he gets on the mic……….WOW!
My first memory singing with ADÉ was magical and unforgettable, he will always be a special friend and an integral part of my career in the music industry.
Lessons with ADÉ really set me on the path to understanding voice use, as a musician understands their instrument. Learning to break down songs, and how to use the breath intelligently so you are able to sing intuitively without fear or over compensation, giving you the confidence to sound uniquely you. I’m so glad I invested.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THOSE WONDERFUL YEARS OF TEACHING.
I STILL HAVE ALL OF MY NOTES!
When ADÉ recorded at our studios 20 years ago, he was one of the best singers I’d heard. 15 years later he tutored me through my music degree at UoW!
ADÉ is a fantastic singer, and a great teacher, who really invests in his students. I’ve had first-hand experience of both!
ADÉ is a unique talent both as a vocalist and – perhaps most importantly for the music business – as an educator. He played an integral role in my transition from musician to music business professional. ADÉ has an unparalleled knowledge of the industry, but it’s his understanding of what it takes on a personal level which I found the most valuable. ADÉ has a teaching style that is personable and relatable, which in my eyes makes him second to none as an educator. ADÉ taught tools and techniques that I have carried with me throughout my career.
Music connected Uncle ADÉ and I over 21 years ago, when he became my Vocal Coach. Since our journey began he has been my Vocal Coach, Mentor, Tour Manager and valued friend.
He has been right beside us during MOBO awards, UMA awards, GEMA & Dove awards. And managed our tour, when we were sole support on Will Young’s 21 date UK Arena Tour.
Uncle ADÉ is a straight talker, who will tell you it, as it is. He is a great vocal coach, and a wonderful God fearing person. For whom I have the upmost respect.
I am grateful for all he has done, more than can be typed I appreciate him & wish him God’s best now & always!
Working with ADÉ has been nothing short of a revelation in my life. He painstakingly instilled the tools and mindset in me that were vital to my development, from a naive student to a Grammy Award Winning Producer. And I wholeheartedly believe that without his guidance, I would never have been able to live out my wildest dreams.
ADÉ is the first man that taught me about resonance when he was my Vocal Coach many moons ago, and I never forgot it. He has shaped so many present and future artists, and is a complete advocate and supporter of the UK scene. I appreciate him and I’m glad I have him in my life.
ADÉ (known as Uncle ADÉ to many), is a music industry professional teacher who has a realness to the way he teaches, that has seen him at the top of the music business teaching tree. His experience in and out of the studio, means he is invaluable when it comes to passing on gems from the world of music.
His experience and all round knowledge, when it comes to all things music business, puts him at the top of the field of go to experts.
‘Uncle ADÉ’ (as myself and many others have nicknamed him) is a brilliant role model who mentored me 16 years ago! He is firm because he wants to get the best out of you, yet down to earth because he genuinely cares.
From music business to the more practical elements of making music, ADÉ has a wealth of knowledge to share with any young or old person interested in the industry.
I attended ADÉ ‘s Song-writers course when I was just starting out in the music industry, ADÉ always encouraged me and championed my talent, I learnt so much from someone who lived, and loved the music industry!
22 years later I have become a successful, award winning songwriter with releases worldwide. Even today ADÉ ‘s words and advice still stick in my head, a great mentor, Tutor and valued friend!
I have had the good fortune of working with ADÉ in a teaching capacity for many years at Westminster University.
Working with ADÉ has always been a very positive experience for me.
He is a great team player, is an avid advocate for student, and colleague success. ADÉ has continuously supported my development. He is organised and thorough, and holds high standards in his ethos, work ethic, approach to teaching, and imparting knowledge.
I would happily work with ADÉ in various capacities again and again.
“I have worked with ADÉ as a colleague at The University of Westminster for over ten years now. He is an amazing spirit with a calm and concise demeanour that oozes with
professionalism and flair.
ADÉ has been and continues to remain an inspirational mentor, friend and colleague. Although known to most first as a vocal tutor, he is experienced in several areas of the music industry and is a respected professional on the scene. He has played a key role in shaping my professional life over the last 3 decades and I’m truly grateful.
Uncle ADÉ was the first mentor I had when my music promotions business AFROKINGS was starting to grow.
His music knowledge, creativity and music promotion background helped to shape the organisation, and all the incredible events we successfully put on including ZimConnect ’18 at Indigo @ The O2.
