Voted Best Instrumental Group (top three) by the readers of the San Antonio Current, two years in a row.
Adam Zuniga’s dazzling guitar work traverses between pop instrumental and world fusion. Modern, effects-laden melodies weave in and out of a uniquely original production aesthetic.
Adam Zuniga's non-stop schedule includes work as songwriter, producer, and guitarist with a residency at Rosario's in the popular Blue Star Arts District near downtown San Antonio.The NY-based music blog, Noise Beneath the Apple says 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 indie artists at a Lower East Side showcase in New York, and has received national and international attention for his efforts outside San Antonio.

Ambient wall-of-sound instrumental with a nod to art rock and dream pop.
Echoing Sentiments is an ongoing creative brainchild of Adam Zuniga, a guitarist and composer from San Antonio. This project represents a musical canvas to be abstract with, blending sounds from a deep well of post-rock, ambient, and shoegaze influences.
As a guitar player, his work is recognized as having a trademark sound typified by understatement, a chiming, shimmering sound that is achieved with extensive use of delay effects, reverb, and a focus on texture and melody.
Adam Zuniga Trio - Frequentscene
Nylon-string guitar and World Fusion.
Adam has dropped much of his previous material and focused his efforts on new music he's producing for 2017 This affords a shift from genres that were more smooth jazz and background music to Pop Instrumental with World Fusion leanings. You can still hear him at live performances as Adam Zuniga and find his previous recordings on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, GooglePlay and other digital download services.
Love Hate Affair
Still a Pandora favorite
Reminiscent of bands like Joy Division and The Smiths, their music continues in the tradition of dance beats and haunting vocal melodies that have found continuity in groups like Editors and Interpol. Having toured extensively throughout the U.S. and including legendary venues such as Whisky A GO GO, Key Club, Radio Room, Viper Room in California, Arlene's Groceries in New York, The Lexington London, their commanding live performance continues to win over fans and critics alike. Their debut Ep Self Titled (2009) received thousands of spins on commercial and college radio with the first two singles “Consumed” and “Travel Back To You”. The band released a highly anticipated 2nd album two years later. The music explored some of the group’s most dynamic and electrifying material to date. Love Hate Affair became a major presence in the indie/New Wave/Post-Rock scene and is still regarded as a band who continues to make their mark. As Do512.com says of Adam's work with the group: “The great high-end guitar playing never showboats, but rather brilliantly weaves into the songs’ bedrock of solid bass and percussion.”
Ultranova are now an inactive band who's members continue to participate in San Antonio's live music scene in other worthwhile acts. Disbanded in 2011.
