About Nashville Standard


Nashville Standard is singer/songwriter Adam Melia, a solo acoustic guitar/ harmonica/ vocalist exploring the roots of American music, spotlighting the timeless sounds of 1950s era country, blues and rock-n-roll. The Standard’s repertoire includes the music of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Marty Robbins, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers, and more.

Adam Melia has been a professional musician for ten years and has been touring the United States full-time since 2014 as part of the critically acclaimed folk duo, Adam & I. His music has been described by No Depression Americana & Roots as a “simple, stripped down old-fashioned inspired folk journey brought up to date.” Adam grew up studying the music of the 50s & 60s era, and shaped his craft of performing and songwriting by becoming a student of its classic artists and undying songs. Harnessing this music's powerful nostalgic tone, Nashville Standard provides a distinct brand of entertainment that takes the listener back to a momentous time in musical history, one that has had a profound affect not only on Adam’s life, but on the world.
