Road Dog Podcast 

I discovered the art of running when I was about 4 years old. I remember driving home from work with my Grandpa Adam when he wanted to stop off at Lincoln Middle School in Vista, CA and get a some laps in before dinner.

Grandpa was quite the runner back in the day often competing in 10k and half marathon events. He was also into supplements and health foods and taught me the beginnings of taking care of my health from a young age.

I remember this particular day at the track hanging out watching him; I decided I wanted to try running too. It looked like something to test myself at and in some way, fun!

I ran my first quarter mile that day without stopping and Grandpa was surprised. I didn't realize that he thought it was something that a young child was capable of running the track non stop but he seemed proud. It set me on an endurance sports path that I am still on today as a long distance trail runner.

In the running world, there is a well known book called "Born To Run" that has become legendary for trail runners the world over. One of the people featured in that great book is Luis Escobar.

I had the great fortune of sitting down with Luis recently for an episode of his Road Dog Podcast. We talk running and music and it was such an honor to be invited on the show. Here's our full conversation below. I hope you enjoy it!!

With love,

Adam

HBD John Prine! 

HBD 

John Prine ! 

It is my feeling that when someone inspires me as much as John Prine has, it's the utmost in respect to create something new from that inspiration. How it might be received is not something I can worry about. As EVH once said (to paraphrase), I'd rather fail with my own work then be the world's best cover artist 

I hope you enjoy the tune! 

With love, 

Adam.

Live stream from Pacific Grove, CA 

This past weekend I was asked to do a last minute set at my favorite restaurant Julia's Vegetarian Restaurant in Pacific Grove, CA (one of my favorite towns too!). Here is the live stream from Instagram (@adamlopezguitar) that I shot using my phone.

It's mostly new original material that's been written in the past year including tracks from the upcoming album "Vol. 1 The Love We Were Born".

I hope you enjoy!

My Reason Why 

Why do I bother sharing music with people? It would be so much easier to be an introvert who makes music solely for personal enjoyment in the privacy of my own environment. It would be so much easier than to face the possibility of rejection, self doubt, and the trials and tribulations that go along with the 'job' of making music. But for some reason, I'm compelled. It's what I have to offer the world that might make it a better place for even just one more soul. It's how I best know to communicate. It just feels right...

"Remember Me Too". Words and Music by Adam Lopez

Lyrics

Hello my love, it’s been too long But now you’re home where the faith is strong.

Nothing’s changed. The furniture’s in place. And I’m still here. Please recognize my face.

For out time is too short and our history too long T

o go out like this, as though we live in the dark

If you only knew what I remember of you

If only you could remember me too

We’re dancing again like we used to do

You’re my Reason but I’m a stranger to you

The music plays on but only I can sing along

But maybe someday you’ll remember our song

And the times we shared and all the reasons we care

And the plans we made that are slipping away

But I’ll be brave along the way

And follow through with my devotion to you
