I Wouldn't Change A Thing

‘I Wouldn’t Change A Thing’ is the fourth single released from Adam Toms’ album “Rich Man”, produced by multiple Golden Guitar winner Matt Fell. Toms wrote the track when his eldest son Mitchel was slap bang in the middle of the ‘terrible twos’.

Like most parents going through this time Adam and his wife continually questioned their parenting ability, but a few years later, Mitchel was diagnosed with autism.

From April 2nd, BUY the single on Itunes - all profits donated to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect)

Toms remembers, “we had a good couple of years scratching our heads thinking we were just lousy parents, and it wasn't until the kindergarten called us in to bring to our attention some common behavioural and sensory traits that we started the diagnosis process.”

A couple of years on, ‘I Wouldn’t Change A Thing’ has a whole new meaning, and Toms has formed a relationship with Aspect.

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects, among other things, the way an individual relates to his or her environment and their interaction with other people. An estimated one in 100 people have autism; that’s almost 230,000 Australians. Autism affects almost four times as many boys than girls.

Inspired by his son's everyday breakthroughs Toms intends to raise awareness for all things autism and raise a few dollars along the way. With his youngest son Riley, three, also showing signs of autism, Toms knows the importance of early diagnosis and intervention, which is one of the messages he wants to communicate.

For 6 months from the 2nd of April 2014, all download sales of this single will be donated to Aspect, and for the same period Toms will also be donating $10 (Aus) from all physical “Rich Man” album sales to the cause. Albums can be purchased at www.adamtoms.com.In addition, Toms will be running a raffle with the major prize being a Maton M225 guitar, generously donated by Maton Australia. Again all proceeds will be donated to Aspect.

The associated video clip, now playing on The Country Music Channel, was created by Toms himself over a three-month labour of love.
