In 1996, Chilean-born and raised Derek Lathrop (multi instrumentalist, composer, producer, engineer) honed and formed the sound that is now known as adams rib. Now moving more solidly into world music, the band began as a fusion of the sounds of the 70's, capturing the spirit of Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, and others to create the concept album “SCENES FROM A CORNER STORE”, released in 1997. The title track quickly garnered success on radio and at Much Music. Derek formed a live band and promptly hit the road. adams rib has been touring every year ever since.

After another recording in 1999, the band shared tour billing with Santana and Sting. They also did countless festivals, performing at Canadian Music Week, and NXNE, as well as many T.V. and radio appearances across Canada. After that the records kept coming out one after another, continually touring and sharing billings with Stevie Nicks, Nickelback, Judas Priest, Loverboy, Goo Goo Dolls, Counting Crows, and the Allman Brothers, just to name a few of the great acts that the band has played with. They performed in Chile in 2009 which really kicked off the band's foray into Latin music, with their influences of rock, reggae, jazz and funk all in play.

2012 ushered in the “the mix tapes” a compilation of the band's most popular songs. The lead-off single, “Free Music” one of the band's most requested tunes, was released to radio in June of that year. The single hit the top 100 on the Mediabase Rock charts at stations across Canada. Since it's inception, adams rib has scored several charting singles "scenes from a corner store", "thinking about this", "high", "souvenir". They have now entertained hundreds of thousands of people all over the globe.

Derek finished up the band's tenth studio recording of new material at the end of 2012 and released "Chameleon" in May of 2013, showing even more of a world music vibe. It was mixed by long-time collaborator Mike Krompass (Pink, Jordon Knight, Smashmouth) in Nashville, Tennessee. 2014 is shaping up to be a busy year in touring for adams rib.
