One Love
Band Info:
A native New Yorker, Adam Scott, professionally known as ONE LOVE, started his musical career at a young age. Not surprisingly coming from a music background as his grandfather played the trumpet with the Glenn Miller Orchestra.

At age nine, Adam was on the road to becoming an accomplished drummer and by the age of 14 he was well sought after by local bands. At the age of 17, he picked up the guitar and was a natural. Never being interested in covering songs, the guitar became his personality to write and sing, and again he proved to be a natural. He has been on two tours with Big City Lights playing lead guitar and singing harmonies.

Adam met producer/engineer Jon Castelli, who immediately recognized Adam’s talents and gave him the opportunity to write and record what is now his first single release entitled “Get Up And Go.” Jon’s partner, producer Evan Scott Smith, came into the mix and One Love’s music came to fruition and as a result a six song EP was completed.

“ONE LOVE is not just a name or even an idea; ONE LOVE is a movement,” Adam states. “And not just for me and my band, but for everyone. I didn’t start ONE LOVE, the idea; I wanted to start ONE LOVE, the Movement.” 

On May 2011and released his debut EP April 19th. Clear Channel’s digital station, iheart radio, released the first single “Get Up And Go” on May 5th where it remained #1 for 8 weeks, #2 for 2 weeks and is currently on their Top Ten chard at #8.  Z100 has announced One Love as “New Artist To Watch.”
One Love’s 2nd single, “Melody,” will be released in late September.
