It all began in the basement studio of a Mississauga home back in 1996. That’s when Derek Lathrop (multi instrumentalist, composer, producer, engineer) honed and formed the sound that is now known as adams rib. A fusion of the sounds of pink floyd, bob marley, stevie wonder, led zeppelin, u2, and queen rolled into one to create “SCENES FROM A CORNER STORE”, the debut effort, released in 1997. The title track quickly garnered success on radio and at Much Music. Derek formed a live band and promptly hit the road. adams rib has been touring every year ever since.
