  Summary  

Adam Green is an American singer-songwriter.

Green's off-kilter style has achieved a moderate college radio following in the United States, and enjoys increasing popularity in a number of European countries, particularly Germany.

  Biography  

 career
Green attended Emerson College for one semester in 1998 before leaving to concentrate on his music, going on to co-found The Moldy Peaches with Kimya Dawson. In 2004, the Moldy Peaches went on hiatus, and both Green and Dawson embarked on solo careers.

Green released several albums on Rough Trade Records. Among his better known songs are "Jessica" , "Novotel", "Friends of Mine", "Dance with Me", "Carolina" and "Emily", and in the UK, his cover of The Libertines track "What a Waster". "Jessica" (#63, 2004) and "Emily" (#53, 2005) both appeared in the UK Singles Chart.

Prior to Jacket Full of Danger in 2006, all of Green's albums had been released on the 22nd of the month.

In January 2008, The Moldy Peaches began having a resurgence in popularity, due to their music being included in the hit indie film, Juno. Most notably, a duet between Green and Dawson, the Moldy Peaches song "Anyone Else But You" was featured in the film, and also in a scene which featured the film's lead actors, Michael Cera and Ellen Page performing the song together. The soundtrack album reached #1 on the Billboard 200 chart on its third week of release.

In April 2010, Green opened Teen Tech - a two-day art show in New York City. The show contained a sizeable collection that included eighteen large-scale (30" x 40") acrylic or watercolor paintings, nineteen drawings, twenty collages and twelve sculptures of plaster, papier-mâché and other materials. This followed similar exhibits in Stockholm and Berlin.

On April 4, 2011, Green released his first film, entitled The Wrong Ferarri. The project, shot entirely on iPhone, was written, directed, and performed in by Green who claims to have conceived it under the influence of ketamine. Others appearing in the film include BP Fallon, Alia Shawkat, Devendra Banhart, Pete Doherty, Dev Hynes, Jeffrey Lewis, Sky Ferreira and Macaulay Culkin.

 personal life
Green's brother Joel, an astronomer, has appeared as an accompanying musician on several recordings.

Green was married, for a short period in 2008, to Loribeth Capella.

Green's great-grandmother, Felice Bauer, was engaged to Franz Kafka; her family fled the Nazis in the late 1930s and relocated to New York.

Green is a friend of the musician Carl Barât, appearing in a documentary with him in 2005, following the pair on a night out in London, for the European television culture channel Arte.
