With the advice of his singing teacher, Lee Farrell, Adams moved to Kansas City, where he performed a series of concerts. His professional career began in the early 1980s with the publication of self-funded albums that had limited success.

In 1985, Adams was discovered by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, founders of the English band Tears for Fears who were touring the United States, while he was performing in a hotel bar in Kansas City. Two years later, they contacted her to invite her to join her band as a singer and pianist on their next album The Seeds of Love.

The album was released in 1989, and the single “Woman in Chains” & amp; dmash, a duo between Adams and Orzabal, with Phil Collins on drums-became his first hit.

His next album, Evolution (1993), was also a commercial success and entered the charts within the top 10; In addition, he released his single “Window of Hope.” In 1995, he launched Moving On with which he ventured into the R & B and returned to perform a duet with Roland Orzabal for the single “Me and my Big Ideas” from the album Raoul and the Kings of Spain by Tears For Fears the same year.
