Seal’s quiet achiever, Rennie Adams says while The Voice is on he’s all work and no play. But the 32-year-old part-time labourer hopes that won’t be the case forever.
“I obviously want to settle down and have kids and all that sort of thing but for now The Voice is taking my attention, I want to put everything into it,” he says.
“If it happens, it happens, but I’m not out to find a wife right now – I’m focusing on the music and giving it a real crack. But yeah, I love kids and I’ve always wanted to be a dad. So one day for sure.
“I don’t have any nieces or nephews, my brother got married last year but he hasn’t had kids yet. But I’ve got cousins who have children. We’re a pretty tight knit family with little ones running around.”
Having recently undergone a mini-makeover in advance of the live shows, Rennie – who is still gigging at local pubs on Sydney’s Northern Beaches in between Voice commitments – says his belief in his talent has soared since Seal took him under his wing.
“Seal told us that there’s a difference between confidence and arrogance,” he explains. “He said you need to find that difference and back yourself, saying, ‘Hey, I am good and unique and this is the way I do it.’”
Certainly the way Rennie does it has grown his female fan base. So, when he is ready to put single life behind him, what kind of a girl is he looking for?
“Someone laid back, who’s friendly, enjoys socialising and has interest in what I’m interested in with music,” he says. “I’m not too picky. I just want someone I have that connection with, someone I like hanging around.”
