Adam Torres (born August 28, 1985) is a mid-western singer/songwriter currently living in Austin, Texas. In the mid-2000s, Torres played as both a solo artist and as part of Athens, Ohio indie folk outfit Southeast Engine. At the age of twenty, Torres wrote and recorded his 2006 debut album 'Nostra Nova' in between summers spent living at his parents' home in Switzerland and while attending Ohio University. Recorded at 3 Elliott Studio and featuring contributions from Southeast Engine band mates and others in the Athens music community, 'Nostra Nova' received a very limited D.I.Y. release and became something of a cult classic.[1] over the years among those who knew about it.

From 2005 to 2008 Torres continued to record and tour with Southeast Engine until he left both Southeast Engine and Athens in 2008, spending a number of years living in Ecuador. In 2012, Torres released a self-titled limited-run cassette of eerie acoustic demos recorded during his time abroad and was put out through DZ Tapes, a small cassette label out of Washington D.C.

After relocating and establishing himself in the music scene in Austin, Texas in 2014, Torres' album 'Nostra Nova' was reissued in 2015 by longtime independent music label Misra Records. Since its reissue, Torres' music has received critical praise [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] and has garnered stylistic comparison to traditional song-writers like Tom Waits & Leonard Cohen [7] in addition to contemporaries like Elliott Smith & Neutral Milk Hotel [8]

In the Spring of 2015, Torres and his band performed a three and a half week national tour, making appearances at both the 2015 Nelsonville Music Festival [9] in Nelsonville, Ohio, as well as the Northside Music Festival [10] in Brooklyn, New York.
