Adam Granduciel was born on February 15, 1979, in the city of Dover, a discreet town located almost 20 mi (32 km) southwest of Boston city.
The singer is the second-born child to father Mark Granofsky, who is a first-generation American national, and mother Paula Granofsky. Adam completed his schooling at Roxbury Latin School in Boston, Massachusetts, and went on to secure a degree in Painting and Photography from Dickinson College.
Adam's journey into the magical world of music began when he was gifted an electric guitar at the age of 13. With no prior experience in musical instruments, Adam Granduciel began learning the tricks of the trade all by himself. The singer had confessed that he was largely influenced by his mother's love for country music and indie rock by famed artists like Roy Orbison and George Harrison.
The years spent in college helped young Adam to improve his musical skills as he met several like-minded friends who shared a common love for rock music. He used to participate in jam sessions and small gigs with the group in an effort to perfect his guitar skills.
Eventually, upon graduating from Dickinson College, Adam Granduciel set out in search of a career in music which brought him to the bountiful city of California. Here, he used to work as a waiter during the day and practise his guitar at night.
However, Adam's big break came when he traveled to Philadelphia and met Kurt Vile at a party, where the duo became friends over drinks and their common love for Bob Dylan. The two struggling artists decided to join hands, which resulted in the creation of their first indie rock band, The Violators. Later, the duo went on to create another rock band, The War On Drugs, which laid the foundation for their success in the world of indie rock. Their debut EP titled 'Barrel Of Batteries' received a fantastic response from music lovers, which encouraged the artists to release their debut studio albums 'Wagonwheel Blues' in June 2008.
The album received widespread acclaim from both music lovers and critics alike. However, post the success of this venture, the band members decided to go their separate ways. The year 2010 eventually saw the band regroup for a sophomore EP 'Future Weather', followed by the release of an album titled 'Slave Ambient' in 2011. The comeback turned out to be a roaring success, with the album breaking several records in various music charts and lists.
