Adam Passalacqua got his start at the age of 12 with his first band Runaway Slide, also composed of his two other cousins. Their blues-rock style allowed them to gain recognition within Quebecs blues circuit. In 2008, they opened for Canadian blues legend Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush in Omaha, Nebraska. That same year, following their successful momentum, they won the Lys Blues Award for best upcoming band.
For 6 years, he was a touring member of Juno nominated band, The Franklin Electric where he played drums, keyboards, synth, and sang background vocals. He has performed in hundreds of concerts including North American and European tours where the band shared the stage alongside notable acts such as Half Moon Run, Kaleo, and City & Colour. Highlights include sold out shows at MTelus, Osheaga, Place Bell, and the Montreal Jazz Festival.
At this very moment, Adam is touring with newly notable Montreal French rapper, Fredz and a few other artists. He is also dedicated to mastering his newly creative path; songwriting, producing and recording.
