We had the good fortune of connecting with Adam Skeppar and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Adam, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
I think a habit that has helped me succeed is to keep pushing even though things are tough, as well as realizing that something negative can be turned into a positive. It’s important to realize that during trying times alot of your best qualities are formed and that is truly when you are forming who you’ll be when you succeed. Another habit that I think is important is to try and be open minded, things don’t have to go exactly the way you think, there are different ways to get to where you want to be. If you can keep working hard while having an open mind and trying new things then I think that is very useful.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a guitarist from Sweden based in LA. What sets me apart from others is that I’m very versatile and that I also have a unique touch. I’m excited to able to tour around the world as well as work with artists in the US and in Sweden. I got to where I am today by practising alot, taking opportunities when they came as well as always being prepared. It hasn’t always been easy. It’s important to push during hard times and to keep learning. You have to push beyond your boundaries.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would probably take them to Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Downtown, West Hollywood and Hollywood spread throughout the week. There are some great clubs in West Hollywood. And I would probably take them to some of the rooftop bars in Downtown. You need to check out the beach too of course. I would also probably take them to some venues around the city. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’ll have to give a shoutout to my mentor Stig Mathisen. He unlocked alot of things for me as a guitar player and has helped me alot on my journey.
