Whether it’s a fan who used[their] song “Favorite Girl” to propose to his fiance, or a couple who shared their first dance to “So In Love,” or a high schooler struggling with depression that has been comforted by our song “Mayday;” these stories are a reminder of how powerful music can be and how lucky [they] are to be able to reach the world by doing what [they] love...[They] love writing [,]..recording...>meeting fans for the first time and calling them friends by the end of the night... Image of Adam Pate

Adam Pate draws more people per hour than anyone in the world! He can draw up to 200 people in b/w on paper at a 3 hour event sitting or strolling while people watch, talk and laugh with him! A sketch takes 45-60 seconds.
