Adam C. Powell
April 27, 1980 – June 24, 2016
Adam Carlton Powell died suddenly on Friday evening, June 24th, 2016 in Huntsville, AL. He was a loving father and a very talented digital musician. He had just finished his first album set as Zer0zer0one (001) and was getting it ready to publish. He is survived by his son, Cohen Audio Powell, his parents, Carl and Susan Powell, his brother, Lee and his sister, Claire, all of Huntsville, AL.
Adam was taken too soon and we are convinced he did not intend to leave us. Earlier in the day, he talked on the phone to his Dad and had a pleasant conversation. His Dad was going to see his grandfather and was bringing back a piece of audio equipment for Adam. They discussed the equipment and what it could do. Adam was very excited about trying it out to make more samples for his music. He had also made plans to pickup his son to be with him for the weekend. Apparently, he took something to sleep or feel better, and whatever he took turned out to be a poison to him. He was found unresponsive in the early evening and all efforts to revive him were ineffective. He was pronounced dead at Crestwood Hospital some time after 8pm that evening.

UPDATE July 7, 2016 - On Saturday, July 2nd, 2016 about 50 of Adam's friends and family met at Braham Spring Park to celebrate his life and to say goodbye. It was a great time, with 001 music playing while everyone caught up and remembered. Thanks to all who had a part of this event and especially to those who drove many miles to attend. It was good to see so many on whom Adam had an impact!
How You Can Help Adam Provide for Cohen
Many have asked if there is anything they can do to help. Most of us are concerned about Adam's 8 year old son, Cohen. As a musician, and since he was working 100% on his music at the time, Adam had no insurance and was not able to leave anything to help provide for Cohen.
In order to help Adam out, the best we can do now is try to help him provide for his son, Cohen Audio. Cohen is extremely intelligent, but is on the spectrum for Autism and will need therapy for that as well as for grief support as the loss of his dad becomes more of a reality. We have setup the following ways for you to help if you can.
1) If you live in north Alabama, you can drop by any Redstone Federal Credit Union and tell them you want to make a donation to the Cohen Powell fund. 100% of the donation will go to help Cohen.
2) If you would like to make a donation from afar, you can contribute through the GoFundMe campaign for Cohen. The address is http://gofundme.com/cohenaudio
3) Finally, the zer0zer0one webstore is now OPEN FOR BUSINESS! All profits from the sales on that site go to help Cohen. We're adding new items every few days, so check back often.
The address is https://zer0zer0one.myshopify.com. You can even pre-order 001's new CD there!
4) Share these links with anyone you think may want to help. Use Facebook, Twitter, or even SnapChat to share items from the sites and promote them. All proceeds and profits will be used solely to help Cohen. No overrides or skimming or salaries. Just help for Cohen.
