Adam "Bovine" Bolt, commonly known as The Abingdon Troubadour, was the front man for the Virginia Rock Band, The Ordinary Bitters and has led several projects from incubation to hatchlings. There is no comparison to Bolt's highly acclaimed songwriting. Bolt connects to his audience through common emotions through humor,sadness, and empathy. Bolt describes his music as "Sensationalized, Cynical, and Seasoned Songs in the Key of Country", and his live performance will have you Laughing, Crying, Singing, and Dancing.

Earlier in 2017 he released, "Alien of Affection" a traditional country sounding record which describes a failed relationship during the change from fall to winter. Bolt prefers to tell short stories through 4-6 songs EPs and will release "Half Empty Full Shade" Dec. 2017. This record is more southern rock fueled with remorseful epitaphs and self awareness.

He is currently focused on becoming the best songwriter he can be, his goal is to create short stories through music in hopes that an audience member will connect with just one part of a song.

Bolt currently lives in Abingdon, VA and is constantly working on new music as an independent artist. He has opened for many international touring acts, New Riders of the Purple Stage, Unknown Hinson, John Moreland, JP Harris, Apache Relay, Shonna Tucker and many others.
