Surviving growing up in the streets of Syracuse, NY has allowed Dan Adams to land on his feet and hopefully blaze a trail for those to come. Born to a Baptist Minister Father and God Fearing Mother faith was the anchor and the glue that kept his family together. After meeting and then marrying his future wife while attending The Art Institute of Pittsburgh the experiences dealing with a wide range of people opened up his mind to what the world had to offer. And with that Dan’s musical aspirations began to form and eventually launched into an independent Hip-Hop music endeavor. Dan took on the stage name Melodiq. Melodiq has been bringing flavorful Hip-Hop since 1994. Fusing Hip-Hop, Soul and Jazz has been at the forefront of Melodiq’s music, with influences from A Tribe Called Quest and Gangstarr paving the way for Melodiq to bring his style to the Hip-Hop community. Melodiq’s work rate is outstanding and over the years has built up a solid, soulful and consistent repertoire of material collaborating with producers, musicians and emcees worldwide. As long as there is Hip-Hop, Soul and Jazz in existence there will be Melodiq standing firm. Not participating in the political arena for most of his life it took the birth of his son to realize what was important to him. Conservatism would be the ideology that frame who he would be as a man going forward. With so much uncertainty going on in the world today Dan has taken on the task to reach the masses via every medium at his disposal. He hopes to continue to shine the light on Conservatism hoping to bring those out of the darkness.
