Adrian Whitcomb is known for writing poetry that can be sung. He has been a part of the TFFM Coffee House Songwriters' Night for the past seven years. During the past five years Adrian has performed at the open mic at the Venue on 35TH Street in Norfolk more than 100 times, rarely repeating any of his numerous songs. "My aim," in his own words, "is quite broad in my writings — not just to entertain, but in many of my songs to educate and urge improvement in the human condition. If I can achieve all of these goals while revealing a little of what is inside my heart and mind, then I feel like I have been successful in my songwriting endeavors." Despite the serious content of some of his songs, expect to find plenty of humor in others and sometimes a quite satisfying mixture of both. Adrian believes that the most important part of songwriting is listening.
