It may surprise more than a few listeners to learn that “Feminine Endings”,
the title of D.G. Adams’ debut album, is a Shakespearean reference. Those
who know that Adams has spent the past thirty-eight years as a classically-
trained actor and Shakespeare teacher will not be surprised. (For the curious:
a feminine ending refers to the eleventh, unstressed syllable in a line of
iambic pentameter! In poetic terms, the presence of the feminine ending may
indicate that there is too much thought or emotion in the line to be contained
in ten syllables.) In the acting world, D.G is known as Donald Adams, and he
now plays leads in films and television.
Since the age of fifteen, Adams has quietly been writing music and lyrics, but
only sharing his work with a handful of friends. Fast forward to the year 2000
when he met his best friend Torquil Campbell (of the Montreal band Stars) at
Bard on the Beach Shakespeare festival in Vancouver, where both were working as actors. Campbell listened to one of Adams’ compositions backstage and said, “Donny, it’s so great when your friends don’t suck at stuff!” Adams took this as encouragement, if not high praise, and kept on writing and home-recording his songs. Fast forward to the summer of 2011, when Adams finally felt ready to record his first album of twelve originals, in no small part due to Campbell’s ongoing support. “Feminine Endings”, which Adams describes as “rootsy folk-rock…about longing, lust, love and enlightenment”, is firmly rooted in the singer-songwriter traditions of his heroes Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. But, with the addition of a dash of exotica and political activism, one hears echoes of Leonard Cohen, Lou
Reed, and CSNY. Mike Usinger of The Georgia Straight commented:”the
singer’s warm, whisky-burnished tracks would fit right onto a mix tape that starts
with Damien Rice and ends with Tom Russell. Although that makes it sound like
Adams plays things on the safe side, there are plenty of interesting diversions here.
While Adams still appears in movies and on television (his recent credits
include ABC’S “When We Rise”, Lionsgate’s “Power Rangers (2017)”, Fox’s “Alcatraz”, Lifetime’s “Merlin and the Book of Beasts”, and MGM’s “The Betrayed”), and occasionally acts and directs for theatre, his main passion is now the music, one of the few things in life without which, Adams says, he “could not live.”
“Feminine Endings” was only the beginning for D.G. Adams.
In 2014 he released his second album, “Vajra”, to continued acclaim, and his
appearances on the Vancouver music scene have made him a local hero. And
now he’s ready to take a definite step up. This past November he headed
back into the studio to record “The Old Heart”, produced by his old friend
Torquil Campbell, and dedicated to the memory of his father who passed away in 2015. Music and family and friendship have once again formed a potent mix for D.G. Adams.
