Adam Meisterhans on SoundBetter

I am an experienced producer and guitarist/multi-instrumentalist who has worked with artists including Tyler Childers, Jill Andrews, Joshua Hedley, Lillie Mae, Patrick Sweany, Pujol, and Kelsey Waldon. In addition to my work as a session player and sideman, I’m also a founding member of the band Rozwell Kid. Let's make some music!

I’ve been in Nashville since the summer of 2013, and in that time I’ve done a great deal of touring, in town gigs on Broadway and beyond, as well as traditional sessions and remote recording. More recently, I’ve had the good fortune of producing and I love it! All of these experiences have taught me to listen with bigger and broader ears so I can fit into the entire musical vision and not just live in my own little guitar world. I really enjoy the creative process whether it’s building a track from the ground up or just adding some icing on the cake as a lead instrumentalist.

In addition to the aforementioned artists I’ve played or recorded with, here are some more from my touring resume and discography: Margo Price, Nikki Lane, John R. Miller, Lauren Morrow, J.P. Harris, William Matheny, Olivia Jean, Roger Harvey, Coco Hames, Michaela Anne, Heath Haynes, Fletcher C. Johnson, The Dreaded Laramie, Rave Ami, and Laura Mae Socks.

Making music with other people is a privilege and I’m extremely grateful that I’ve been able to be a part of so many fulfilling and successful projects. I’d love to add your name to the list and make something that we can both be proud of! Get in touch - I'd love to be a part of your project in any capacity!

    Adam has been my guitar hero since the first time I saw him play in a basement in Brooklyn. It’s been inspiring to watch his journey into the studio & touring world, as well as to have the opportunity to work together over the years in many different capacities. The amount of care, focus, & professionalism in his approach to writing & playing is truly incomparable. Whatever the song is when I come into the room has always been taken to to the next level through his creativity & collaboration. Cannot recommend him enough!

    Oh you need an electric guitar? He's got em. Oh you need more than one? He ain't scared.

    Adam Meisterhans is one of my favorite musicians to work with. I'm fortunate to live in the same town as him, so to have him join in on a session is always a treat. But having heard tracks he can deliver anywhere in the world via the information superhighway, I now rest assured that even if I make the plunge and move to Uganda, I can still have a little piece of rock n roll legend on my tracks with ease.

    Creative, kind, willing to go above and beyond are just a few things that come to mind.

    Working with Adam is a dream! He’s an extremely skilled musician, and can do anything, with a deep connection to what he’s playing. He knows his history, and is fluent and inventive. He’s a joy to work with in the studio, and a pleasure to be with on the road. He’s a consummate professional and a great guy; it is not only easy and stress-free to work with him, it’s fun, exciting, and a genuine pleasure! I really couldn’t recommend Adam enough for any project, from writing and recording, to scoring, performing, and touring. You’d be lucky to get him!

    Adam is one of the most skilled, versatile, knowledgeable and motivated guitarists I have ever met. He will bring all of these attributes, along with his easygoing personality and incredible sense of humor, to every gig and session. I've been lucky enough to work with him in various capacities over several years (big gigs, bar gigs, basement recording, professional studios) and he's never given it less than 100%.

    Adam is my go to for anything guitar. He gets what I'm going for right off, usually better than what I'm hearing, and gets it back to me quickly. He's so versatile I don't ever think to call on anyone else, regardless of the genre. From a single lead guitar part up to building multiple guitars across a whole track Adam is incredibly tasty and musical. Super easy to work with too, I couldn't recommend him any higher.

    He’s my first call on everything from studio work to touring. Super tasty, super clean, innovative and a true pleasure to work with. He knows exactly what to do and what not to do without a word being said. Tone for days(any tone) and super detailed oriented(in the best way). Highly recommend!

    Adam is exactly what you want when you hire a guitar player. The parts he came up with for my record really captured exactly what I was going for. He was more than prepared and laid down everything well within the time I had booked in the studio. Best I’ve worked with in Nashville thus far.

    Adam is hands-down one of the most diverse players I know, in addition to being unequivocally creative in the studio and professional. We’ve made several recordings together over the years and I would never hesitate to recommend him, for basically any genre of music.
    He also has a vast knowledge of session guitarists from the last eight decades, giving him the ability to improvise within a style at the simple mention of a reference track, solo, or fill.
    Adam is also possibly the easiest human on earth to get along with, and can field any range of stresses that can arise in a session.

    Adam is one of my favorite session players to work with. He always arrives to the studio prepared and with parts worked out. Highly recommended!
