Lack of Afro

Adam Gibbons is one of the most talented and prolific artists in the world of alternative dance music today. Recording under various guises, Adam first found acclaim as Lack of Afro back in 2006. As well as Lack of Afro and The Unity Sextet, Adam is one half of The Damn Straights, a duo he formed with US rapper Herbal T & also The Adam Coopers, a collaboration with good friend & keyboard supremo George Cooper.

Under his various guises, this musical troubadour has now released seven albums and has produced, remixed or mixed tracks by a total of 67 (and counting) different artists. It is safe to say that he is a man very much in demand.

Lack of Afro’s latest album Hello Baby is a genre-bending colossus of an album that is packed full of Adam’s trademark multi-instrumental goodness, heavy drums, percussion-packed production, and ear for a good tune.

Lack of Afro – Music For Adverts

Lack of Afro has always aimed for a wide ranging, eclectic and progressive musical outlook and his 2014 album follows suit as he harnesses disparate musical styles ranging from funk, soul and hip-hop to create a contemporary yet vintage musical escapade of superb songs. On this his 4th studio album, the influences, sounds and musical textures are more eclectic than ever.


Music For Adverts is stuffed with beautiful audio gems of all varieties – from those ‘proper songs’, through tough nut, hard hip hop jams, deeply grooving funk – Lack of Afro has mastery of many genres, production & various instruments, which is why this album is a fully formed tour de force through contemporary soul.

With Freedom, Recipe For Love, Here We Go Again (another outing with Wax & Herbal T together East Coast producer EOM) and Brown Sugar all in-demand for TV, film & ads.

Music For Adverts is LOA’s best-selling album to-date but this is set to change with the release of his follow up album, Hello Baby.
