Essentially, an acoustic roots project that brings together some of New Zealand's leading musicians in an intimate soundscape to deliver a mix of original compositions and other material from the folk, country, bluegrass and jazz canons.
A blend of traditional instruments and three voices, all delivered with passion!

The AGM are: Richard Adams, Paul Gurney, Stuart McIntyre

Richard Adams – (Nairobi Trio) -electric fiddle, vocals
Richard’s enthusiasm for music extends to other art forms such as painting and acting. Musically he received critical acclaim with Neon Quaver, and with his own Richard Adams Quartet he had the opportunity to play with legendary flautist Paul Horn and the Wellington International Arts Festival. It is the focal point of the Nairobi Trio that Richard’s performance excels which naturally overflows into his performance with The AGM.

Paul Gurney – (The DeSotos) - lead vocals, acoustic guitar, blues harp
"The voice is just genius....seriously the best vocalist I've heard in a long time” - Manu Taylor, National Radio
Paul combines his singing skills with insightful acoustic guitar and songwriting duties. He has had many influences over his playing and listening life - the warmth of a James Taylor, Neil Young in his acoustic mode, Jackson Browne, Ryan Adams and many others.
He uses a mix of acoustic and resonator guitars plus blues harp to deliver his distinctively warm, rootsy sound.

Stuart McIntyre – (The DeSotos) - bass, vocals, Wazinator
Stuart is the bass player in NZ’s own Americana band, The DeSotos. His early bass player influences included the late Gary Thain and Glenn Hughes and his listening preferences include Tom Petty and the rootsy John Mellencamp.
Stuart provides backing vocals to The AGM sound and does a lead vocal on occasion. He uses a Gretsch White Falcon Bass and a 1962 (re-issue) Fender Jazz Bass while playing with The AGM.
When not being a musician, he works as a holistic life coach.
