Adam Nitti has been establishing his own voice amongst his contemporaries as both a bassist and recording artist for over two decades. He has released five solo recordings to date on his own Renaissance Man label which have drawn international acclaim, but he has also been notably involved as a bassist and contributor on a variety of projects covering multiple genres. As a recording bassist, he has also appeared on three Grammy-winning albums and another Grammy-nominated album to date. Adam has performed with Kenny Loggins, Carrie Underwood, Michael McDonald, the Dave Weckl Band, Steven Curtis Chapman, Jeff Coffin Mu’tet, Susan Tedeschi, Lincoln Brewster, the Justice League (featuring T Lavitz, Jimmy Herring, and Richie Hayward), Angie Aparo, Scott Henderson, Jon Anderson, Peter Erskine, Heather Headley, Al Green, Keith Carlock, Shane Theriot, Mike Stern, Chris Tomlin, Casting Crowns, Kirk Covington, Wayne Krantz, Marco Minnemann, the London Symphony Orchestra, Joe Beck, and many others.
Adam’s passion for the bass guitar has been matched in more recent years by his passion for sharing musical knowledge. In 2003, he co-founded the first-ever online interactive music school, MusicDojo.com. MusicDojo allowed students from all over the world to access world-class instructors via virtual classrooms and gain valuable feedback and critique of their daily assignments on their own schedule. MusicDojo was unique in the way it offered convenient, high-quality online interactive instruction at the time of its launch, and ultimately helped to pave the way for other music educational sites to come online. Adam’s knowledge and experience gained from his involvement with MusicDojo ultimately led him to create AdamNittiMusicEducation.com, a membership-based online academy for bass guitar. Using an extensive curriculum-based library of HD video lessons as its foundation, the site also offers interactive options for those looking for an even more-personalized experience.
In addition to his work as a performer, composer, and online educator, Adam is also an adjunct faculty member of Belmont University’s School of Music and the Atlanta Institute of Music. He is also a bass clinician for Aguilar Amplifiers, Ibanez Basses, and D’Addario Strings, and is a staff instructor for both Victor Wooten’s “Wooten Woods” music camps and Gerald Veasley’s Bass Boot Camps. Adam is also a former columnist for Bass Player magazine and Bass Musician Magazine, and has made hundreds of appearances at such events as Euro Bass Day Italy, Bass Player Live!, Bass Day U.K., the Outreach Festival-Austria, Bassquake, and the European Bass Day in Germany.
