Ryan Adams Net Worth $12 Million

To begin with, Adams parents divorced when he was a small child. Being eight, he started writing short stories, then as a teenager he became interested into creating songs. At the age of 16, he dropped out of high school with a view to pursue a career in music. Adams alongside his friend Wilko have released three albums under the name of their band Whiskeytown; Afterwards, Adams decided to pursue a solo career. In 2000, he released the debut album “Heartbreaker”. However, his breakthrough came with his album “Gold” (2001) which is associated with the single “New York, New York”. Afterwards, he brought “Demolition” (2002) out, which entered the music charts in the USA and many European countries. In the winter of 2003, he came up with the idea to use rock from the 1970s and 1980s, moreover influences of U2 can be heard. Simultaneously several EPs like “Love Is Hell Part 1” and “Love Is Hell Part 2” appeared, including the studio album released under the same name. Adams is considered exceptionally productive, which has a positive impact of his net worth, too.

After a broken wrist in the spring of 2004 (at a concert in Liverpool, he fell off the stage) the double album “Cold Roses”, albums “Jacksonville City Nights” and “29” were released in 2005. The trilogy is seen as a high point in his career. In October, he again gave a concert in Paradiso, which however this time ended in booing and the throwing of beer glasses after Adams stormed off stage halfway through a numbe, not to return. A few days later, however, he gave an outstanding performance at the Take Root Festival. In mid-2007, Adams released the next album, entitled “Easy Tiger”. The same year he won the Q Award, in the category of Q Merit Awards. In the summer of 2011, Adams gave a short series of solo concerts in Europe, then in October 2011, a new studio album entitled “Ashes & Fire”, produced by Glyn Johns appeared. This was another typical singer-songwriter album with acoustic guitar, piano, light drums and the voice of Adam. It is worth mentioning the fact that Adams has been nominated for Grammy Awards five times, although none of them won.

Finally, in the personal life of the singer and songwriter, he married the singer and actress Mandy Moore in 2009, but at the beginning of 2015, the two announced that they had decided to divorce, without revealing any details.

Quotes

#Quote
1I feel like I'd I write a song to make a million dollars then I've misused music. Spiritually, that song is corrupt. Everything you say in that song is a lie. It should be called 'I Want a Million Dollars'. That's the honest title.
2Conflict and resolution, picking at old wounds, that's my job. That's the real thing.
3[on writing songs] It's recreation, it's craft, it's ritual. When I turn that faucet on, the water comes out. It's like the flow of life.
4Writing and creating, those things come to me on their own. I feel like... you sort of summon them and it's like allowing the universe to enter your heart in an entirely different way to what it normally does. It's like inviting that energy of the universe to enter into your craft in a way where it has a meaning.
5You could eat sushi off my bookshelf. My cleaning regime is like a battleground. I'm Genghis Khan and my cleaning products are my Mongolian army and I take no prisoners. The rest of my life is an experiment in chaos so I like to keep my flat neat.
6Part of the joy of music is listening to lots of different kinds of music and learning from it. Specifically for me, I like writing songs that move me, and what moves me are beautiful songs on the piano or the guitar and really, really heavy music.
7There definitely isn't a structure anymore to how I get ideas. A lot of times I'll just write down a phrase, or I'll have an idea that's attached to just a few chords. Other times, it's work.
8There's all these musicians in the world, and anybody that takes enough time to create a record or even think about the fantasy of rock & roll, it's a vulnerable place to be in, it's a huge thing to do.
9To make a song is a gift, and once it's done it keeps evolving and changing and becomes a tool to interact with other people. It's like a conversation.
10When I start working on a batch of tunes - like roughly 10 solid tunes - I always know there'll be another 10 to follow, because for every song I invest a lot of time in, there's another song waiting behind it.
11I think it would be wrong to consider 'Ashes and Fire' a love album. The record is obsessed with time. I believe that there is a kinder view of the self on this record.
12I was a nervous young man. I wanted to do so many things. And I was so enthusiastic and earnestly in love with so many things that I tried too hard. I tried really, really hard. And I made a lot of mistakes. I was afraid of a lot of stuff. And I kind of feel bad for that person I was.
13I've gotten to a place where I still love to play and sing, but I don't have any ego agenda left, outside of just wanting to stay in a creative place and play music. I much prefer to sing for somebody else, and to somebody else.
14My intentions have been, and are always, to just really get behind what my ideas are musically and to just ride this thing out, cause it feels good, and I think for the most part it's good music. Even when it's not, I'd like to still search for something that could be even like a little bit mind-blowing or shocking to me.
15On 'Heartbreaker,' I had to sing those songs. I drank the way I did those songs. I ate the way I did those songs. I communicated the way I did those songs. With 'Gold,' I was trying to prove something to myself. I wanted to invent a modern classic.
16Maybe I am a jerk sometimes. Maybe I'm not. I think most people are kind of a jerk once in a while.
17Music is my thing. It's my thing; it's what I love. It's what I do. It's football to me; it's Christmas to me; religion to me; poetry to me.
18When I'm in New York, I just want to walk down the street and feel this thing, like I'm in a movie.
19Collaboration has become really integral to my process. I play music so that I can spend time with my friends and communicate in that way. I experience so much joy in that process, because, you know, it's those times of getting together and playing music and all that comes with it that are the best for me.
20I think I've been incredibly raw my whole career. A lot of people spend a lot of time trying to look cool and spend time being guarded and putting up walls. I just never had the time. It seems more honest to say, 'Hey, this is who I am.'
21I think that we live in a time where it's easier to be suspicious of dedicated men and women, people dedicated to their craft, because the world around them inspires them to be lazy. It inspires them to be negative. It inspires them to be snarky.
22There is this strange fog of being a young man that I would refer to as soft time. Time does not go forward there. It's a series of doors that kind of wind back into one another, like a series of doors in the upper floor of a house. You revisit the same lessons over and over again, or you choose to ignore them.
23Fame is an unnatural construct and those who go in search of it are the least likely to find it.
24I have found in black metal the lyrics are profoundly beautiful... a pathos and mythos at the same time.
25I routinely never discuss my marriage. It's nice to have things in my life that are totally mine.
