Adam Arcuragi is an American-born songwriter and musician from Georgia, who also lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for many years. He is the founding member of the band SPURS, and is credited with being the founder of the musical genre Death Gospel.

Adam's debut album (untitled) was praised for his complex and often introspective lyrics and his voice garnered comparisons to Nick Drake and Mark Kozelek. Songs from the album were featured on stations and sites such as NPR's All Songs Considered. In 2008, Arcuragi recorded a La Blogotheque/Take-Away Show in New York City and the same year released his EP 'Soldiers For Feet'.

Arcuragi released his second full-length album titled I am become joy in September 2009. The album included collaborations with singer Dawn Landes, Jesse Elliott of These United States. The backing vocals on I Am Become Joy were meant to sound like that of a "ramshackle choir as though each song was tracked in a different church across the wide swath of Route 80 that cuts from southern Georgia to Mississippi".

"Like A Fire That Consumes All Before It" was released on January 31, 2012,, on Thirty Tigers. The album premiered on NPR's "First Listen",. Positive album reviews appeared on NPR, Paste, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Prefix, Impose, Time Out New York, The Portland Mercury and many others.

Arcuragi recorded an NPR Tiny Desk Concert with Bob Boilen, three Daytrotter Sessions, and toured extensively through the United States and Europe, under his name as well as with SPURS. He recorded a version of Claude Ely's Ain't No Grave for a compilation called 'The Old Lonesome Sound. Reviews, Interviews and articles appeared in Rolling Stone, Paste Magazine, American Songwriter, on NPR, in The L Magazine, Magnet, The Philadelphia Weekly and The Washington Post, The Austin Chronicle, The Guardian UK, Huffington Post and many others. He recorded a 78 Project that was featured on The BBC.

Arcuragi has performed with legendary artists such as Ringo Starr and Eric Burdon (of The Animals), and has also co-written several songs with renowned songwriter Jeff Barry.

Since moving to LA in 2013, Adam's musical interests expanded into production, songwriting and original music for Film and TV. He has created original music for several national ad campaigns for brands such as Squarespace, LEGO and Banana Republic, as well as synched and written music for various TV shows THE VOICE, and AMERICAN PICKERS, RECORD COLLECTION and multiple pieces for the 2016 critically acclaimed show SEARCH PARTY, along with a handful of children's programming. Adam has scored a handful of films, most recently a film project for JASH media (2017). His original song 'Exiled' was included on the 2016 Transformers album 'Roll Out'

He currently lives in Silver Lake, CA.
