Stepping Stones Music Management are delighted to announce that it has completed the organisation of the UK tour for Welsh singer/ songwriter John Adams www.johnadamsmusic.co.uk
The agency has booked over 15 dates across the UK with 4 dates already sold out after only a couple of weeks promotion.
John Adams draws influences from the likes of James Morrison, Sam Smith, David Gray and James Blunt. With emotive and heartfelt narratives woven together as stories, John’s expressive and nuanced vocals compliment his acoustic approach and atmospheric piano accompaniments.
John has supported household names such as Take That, Lemar, Stooshe, T’Pau, The Christians and Katherine Jenkins. His hard work and impressive live performance has gained a strong following with over 6 million views on YouTube and a steady 140,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. 2017 saw John perform over 200 gigs, a UK tour with several sold out dates and frequent BBC live sessions. He spends his life on the road performing and is a regular face at the UK’s largest festivals.

Stepping Stones Marketing is proud to have worked with one of the World’s largest harp festivals – The Welsh International Harp Festival – in Caernarfon.
Stepping Stones provided the marketing and promotional support for the festival which saw record attendance numbers when it was held last month. The festival saw harpists come from across the globe to perform at the event.
The festival celebrated the 90th birthday of the legendary harpist, Dr. Osian Ellis CBE, and the enormous contribution that he made to music-making over a period of 70 years and included concerts, competitions, master-classes, lectures, fun classes for absolute beginners, harp exhibitions and much more…
Stepping Stones Marketing create dynamic website for Wales’ leading music venue.
Since 2016, Stepping Stones Marketing has assisted Acapela Studios, based in Pentyrch just outside Cardiff to develop an exciting business strategy. The music venue is a converted welsh chapel with high ceiling, original wooden floors, pews and pulpit – providing excellent acoustics.
The owners requested Stepping Stones Marketing to create a strategy that would see the music hall and recording studio become Wales’ leading independent music venue. In under 18 months the venue has now become the most popular small music venue in Wales with the audience capacity increasing from just over 30% per event to over 70%.
The venue has attracted major international stars including:
- Toyah Willcox
- Beverley Craven
- Judie Tzuke
- Fairport Convention
- The Christians (3 sell out nights)
- Steve Harley (3 sell out nights)
- Barbara Dickson (2 sell out nights)
In December 2017, the venue arranged an ambitious Christmas programme the “12 Nights of Christmas” which saw 8 sell out concerts over the month. In 2018, the venue will see this ambition raised further with over 100 concerts, comedy nights and dining experiences all programmed and marketed by Stepping Stones Marketing.
To enable the venue to ensure that all their events are promoted effectively in autumn 2017 Stepping Stones Marketing designed and built the new Acapela Website www.acapela.co.uk
The website provides visitors with facilities to purchase tickets and find information on all performers and has been search engine optimised to ensure that the venue continues to “punch above it’s weight”.
