FS Solos: Another Again, I’ll Make a Man Out of You

“I love to sing-ah. About the moon-ah in the June-ah and the spring-ah.”
~Adam Waite

What are your favorite recorded a cappella tracks? Funkjoe (The Stouxingers), Words (The Real Group)

What was the first a cappella song you ever heard? “Stand by Me” by Rockapella

What is your favorite Fundamentally Sound memory? A WILD TIM MAO HAS APPEARED!

What was the first song you sang with Fundamentally Sound? I wanna say it was “Closer” at Gamma Phi Beta.

What previous singing experience do you have? I’ve been singing since I was…2? Then I got into choir in middle school and kinda just kept with it from there. I started an a cappella group my senior year with my friend Joe (he’s in 5th Element over at UW-Eau Claire, check them out) called Backstage and it looks like it’s still going strong.

Interesting fact: I am the messiah of organization. I’m also a dead ringer for Alvin of Alvin and the Chipmunks, if the need arises.

What is your claim to fame? I was Peter Pan. Flew around and stuff. Nbd.

What do you do before a Fundamentally Sound performance to prepare? I have a three step program. Step 1: I put my swag on. Step 2: I take a look in the mirror and say, “What’s up?” And finally, Step 3: I get money.

Describe an average day in the life of Adam Waite: I wake up. THREE TIMES. Then, when I’m done waking up, I get on my sweet computer and go on Facebook or some awesome blogs until I have to go to some awesome classes about evolution or gemstones. After that, I boss it up and tell my oven: “I want pepperoni on my Tombstone!” About 20 minutes, I widow the family of that pepperoni pizza and maybe watch some old Nickelodeon cartoons. One short 3-hour mega coma later, I wake up to make music of the ridiculously-sexy variety with FS. There are no survivors.
