The Adults Profile

NZ rock supergroup The Adults was formed in 2010 by Shihad frontman Jon Toogood. It originally began as his solo project but quickly grew into a much wider collaborative grouping.

Jon Toogood explained to Australian website AAA Backstage, "Basically, I took a song I'd written called 'Anniversary Day' around to Julia Deans’ house, who is a friend of mine and a great musician. She was just down the road. I thought okay cool, she can help me with this bit that I'm stuck on."
