Adam Falkner (One eskimO)
Adam Falkner is a band member of One eskimO. They’ve toured the US relentlessly for 2 years and have just wrapped up a year of US shows including Coachella and the Mile High festival. Following a tidal wave of radio success, One eskimO’s single “Kandi” has been named the #1 AAA song of the year by Billboard’s BDS airplay charts, and also won “Song of the Year” at this year’s FMQB Triple A Conference. One eskimO has played on the Ellen DeGeneres Show three times, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Jimmy Kimmel Show.
Their iTunes bonus track “Hi Low And In Between” was named one of the “Best Songs Of 2010” by Amazon.com. They have toured with Tori Amos, Paolo Nutini, Gomez, Faithless, Train, The Script, Lifehouse, Alpha Rev, Colbie Caillat, Bob Schneider, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Tricky, playing in venues such as Radio City in New York, the Chicago Theatre and the Greek Theatre in LA.
