A Man Called Adam (sometimes abbreviated to AMCA) are an Ibiza-based British dance music group comprising Sally Rodgers and Steve Jones, who were pioneers of the chill out genre.
The group began as a jazz collective in the mid-1980s, taking their name from a 1966 movie about a jazz musician starring Sammy Davis Jr, and signing to the Acid Jazz label. By 1990 the original group had split up and Rodgers and Jones signed to Big Life, which released their breakthrough single "Barefoot in the Head". They went on to release three albums, The Apple (Big Life, 1991), Duende (Other Records, 1998) and All My Favourite… (Southern Fried Records, 2004). Apart from "Barefoot In The Head" (which takes its title from a novel by Brian Aldiss) their most famous singles include "I Want to Know" and "Easter Song". Another popular track, "Estelle" has appeared on many compilations though it was never released as a single.
Unusually for a group known for electronic dance music, they released an acoustic version of their most popular track "Barefoot In The Head" as a single in 2004 and have also performed acoustic sets as a live band. They have also produced a number of remixes for other artists and, with Steve Gribbin, founded the specialist chill-out label Other Records.
Paul Daley of Leftfield (who, like AMCA, were pioneers of chill out music) was once a member of the group and appears on their early Acid Jazz singles.
