Dreaming of international stardom, Adama has continued to build a loyal following for its hook-laden approach to British rock. Rising from the ashes of several now-defunct bands, the group has steadily evolved their own sound. Hailing from Yately, a small village in the southern England county of Hampshire, the quartet continues to center around the smoky vocals and hard-edged guitar playing of Matt Hegarty. While founding members Mike Linge (percussion) and Gareth Davies (guitar, background vocals) have remained essential to the band's sound, bassist Mark Mulcaster has been less consistent. Leaving the group in March 2001 due to "personal and musical differences," he was replaced by Stockholm-born bassist Daniel Edman for three months before agreeing to return to the band in May. A month later, Adama released a self-produced demo EP, Something to Write Home About.
