Beat-heavy, instrumental guitar that traverses between pop instrumental and World Fusion.
“For me, this album represented a departure from previously released material and pushed the boundaries of the production styles I had established.”
“The goal was to create an album that did not contain a single superfluous note.”
Adam Zuniga’s dazzling guitar work traverses across genres beginning with his contribution to the band Hours Quiet and continuing with his solo guitar efforts with the Adam Zuniga Trio. In addition, he regularly performs with bands covering a wide variety of top 40 music and even a Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute act. Adam demonstrates his songwriting capacity with the newest EP by Hours Quiet, which has received rotation in Austin’s 101x and other indie music outlets, and with his latest instrumental release, Frequentscene.
Hours Quiet is an Austin-based band that can be described as melodic indie with 1st wave and modern alternative influences. They have quickly become mainstays at Stubbs, Empire Control Room, Swan Dive and other music venues. The band is currently finalizing a series of singles recorded at the “Best of Austin” award-winning Good Danny’s, a recording studio in Austin. Accolades include “Best Grand Slam Studio” – 2014 Austin Chronicle “Best of Austin” Critic’s Pick; “Best Recording Studio” – 2013 Austin Music Industry Awards.

On the instrumental side, the Adam Zuniga Trio was voted Best Instrumental Group (top three) by the readers of the San Antonio Current, two years in a row. The trio has enjoyed residencies at places like Rosario’s in the popular Blue Star Arts District, Paesanos 1604, Aldaco’s at Sunset Station and La Villita’s artwalk at Maverick Plaza. The NY-based music blog, Noise Beneath the Apple writes that, “either Adam Zuniga is not a traditional world artist, or he is changing the very face of the genre upside down. Either way, it is a victory.” He performs every year with other independent artists at a Lower East Side showcase in New York City.
