Aficionado of both new and early music, classical guitarist and lutenist, Adam Cockerham is known for his moving solo performances, his nuanced ensemble work, and sensitive accompaniments. As a finalist in the 2011 Carmel Society Instrumental Competition, his performance was regarded as being “beautifully and effortlessly executed” by Peninsula Reviews. In 2013, Cockerham was the winner of the San Francisco Conservatory Baroque Ensemble Concerto Competition and performed Vivaldi's Lute Concerto in D Major with the orchestra. Cockerham received his BM and MM degree from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music with a Secondary Emphasis in Historical Plucked Strings. While at the conservatory, Cockerham studied guitar with Sérgio Assad, David Tanenbaum, and Lawrence Ferrara, and period instruments with Richard Savino. Partnering with acclaimed mezzo-soprano Danielle Reutter-Harrah, the two founded Jarring Sounds, a voice and guitar/lute duo in 2011. The duo released their first album in February 2014.
