Rock Violin, Live Looped, No Net

Rock violinist, Adam DeGraff has been searching for emotionally stable, hard working, and tireless bandmates with whom to tour for nearly two decades. He believes he has found them. Using his violin to create nearly all the sounds of a full band, and then intricately looping them live on stage, this former concert violinist now has only himself to blame. Adam DeGraff is an American violinist, composer, producer, educator, and farmer. He spent the first part of his career as a first-chair, professional orchestral musician. Since then, Adam has been experimenting with rock violin, live looping, alternative music education, and traditional permaculture farming practices.

Adam graduated from Northwestern University where he studied with famed Portuguese concert violinist, Gerardo Ribeiro. He then continued with graduate work at Rice University where he studied with the world's most beloved concertmaster, Raphael Fliegel.
