Adam Norman Winner of Aplaud’s Hip Hop Contest 11.1.19

Adam Norman is a William and Mary senior hailing Richmond, VA. As a media studies major, Adam spends much of his time experimenting with sound, exploring how samples drawn from nature and digital culture can be blended into new and fresh ideas. Adam is fascinated by a vast array of musical genres and techniques, but through experimental production hopes to hone in on a distinct sound of his own. Adam's interest in hip hop was deepened through the "Hip Hop in Sub-Saharan Africa" course he took his freshman year at W&M. Adam hopes to eventually use his music to preserve, promote, and protect marginalized cultures and identities.
