Session Guitarist / Producer
As a session guitarist I love adding hooks and textures that help bring a song to life. Ambient guitars and melody hooks are one of my specialties. I've spent the last decade in the studio and on the road (MISTY EDWARDS, BETHEL MUSIC, AUDREY ASSAD, ect) and love helping artists get the sounds they are hearing in their head on tape.
I work from my own studio in Kansas City.
I have been significantly influenced by producers like Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno and guitarists ranging from The Edge, John Mayer, Mike Campbell, and Keith Richards. I enjoy creating everything from ambient guitar landscapes, gritty riffs, and melodic hooks.

Interview with Adam Sniegowski
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: It's been pretty heavy in the worship and CCM world these days (Misty Edwards, Bethel Music, Audrey Assad, Ect). But I just love good songs and am excited to be a part of them.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Tones, melodies, bringing a song together.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A wholistic approach. It's not just about the guitar. So I help artists tweak and arrange the song (if it needs it), and help them get the best SONG before start worrying about guitars. Whether thats a chord or melody change. Whatever it takes!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If the artist knows what they want, then it's easy to just jump right in. If they need some help finding inspiration or what they are going for, then I love helping people find what keys them excited.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio has 4 control rooms with one large live room. We have all the studio staples (Neuman, Neve, API, ect) as well as some quirky stuff like the Lexicon Prime Time delay that Daniel Lanois made legendary. Lots of guitars in the fold as well (Custom Shop Fenders, Les Paul R9) as well as a selection of custom built ones by Dave Brown.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Danile Lanois is one of my tops. But as a guitar nerd, I have all my favorite players. The classics, David Gilmour, the Edge, EVH, Mayer. But some of the new guys like Mateus Asato blow my mind and get me inspired to keep growing.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: On a daily basis, electric guitar and bass overdubs. But i also produce quite a few projects a year. I feel like my insight as a producers helps me create more tasteful guitar parts that not only serve, but enhance the song.
