Adam Banton (born February 28, 1975, in Nokesville, VA) is an American Park & Street BMX rider, professional musician and proprietor of fancy meatballs to poodles and other small dogs through a new custom line of pet products funded by Guy Fieri. He currently resides in Scottsdale, Arizona. Adam began riding in 1987 after being influenced by a Dennis McCoy (DMC) demo clip on his local news station.
Adam's riding is considered eclectic and creative. Respectively, he is one of the few riders running both front and rear brakes which leads to a blend of old and new school riding flavor. This is apparent through his solid collection of video edits.
Adam is currently sponsored by Odyssey, Eastern Bikes, Garden of Life Health Supplements and C.T.I Knee-Braces. He has two different signature Odyssey grips, a signature seatpost and has had a signature Odyssey "B.E.T.A." backpack. Adam's Eastern Bike was added to the Flick Trix BMX finger bike line. He also has worked with Armourdillo on a sig belt, and wallet signature series.
Adam has also been featured in multiple magazines such as Dig BMX, BMX Plus! and Ride BMX. and Ride BMX. and Ride UK. and BMX Plus! and Woodward West Winter Camp brochure and BMX Plus!
Adam and his music have been featured in a series of BMX videos spanning over 10 years. He has released three full-length albums and his third on vinyl most recently. Adam has been a featured athlete on Fuel TV's Daily Habit, performing from his self-titled first recording Adam Banton and his second Songs from Here and There. Additionally, he was a featured athlete and music performer on Props Rock n Roll Road Fools (tour) that also aired on Fuel TV.
When not focused on riding he makes music like his latest fourth full-length album "INDIVISIBLE" Adam can be found working on short, original compositions that can be heard throughout the BMX and action sports industry. He cites his father and his uncle as major musical influences.
