Adam Ezra Group is a dynamic acoustic roots/rock band rising to the top of the Boston music scene. Their unique diversity of roots, pop and acoustic rock sound perfectly combines Ezra's passion for smart, well written lyrics and the band's fine-tuned musicianship bringing their sound together with rich, complex, and hook laden melodies. The band's energy is becoming legendary as Adam and the band ignite the stage with a power that has been compared to that of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
View From The Root is the band's first national release and an eclectic bundle of songs that are brought to life with a range of styles and sounds that powerfully reflect Ezra’s message. This is a very upbeat album with songs that will take you on a lyrical ride laden with contagious melodies. The band truly exemplifies this passion of each song on a daily basis, devoting a portion of their touring schedule to events promoting various charities and community activism.
The Group has been selling out shows across New England, including their now-legendary sold out CD release show at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, where the band had one of their fans Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith join them on stage to play. AEG is building their fan base nationally, having opened for the likes of John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Cracker, and The Robert Randolph Band amongst many others. They have also played festivals such as WBOS Earthfest (MA), Rothbury (MI), and Wildflower (TX). It is certain that the release of View From The Root will help the band continue to build their fans across the nation and continue their rise to one of the country’s most talked about live bands.
How do you describe your music to people, Adam?
Tell me about how you originally got into your craft.
music was always the thing that could touch me deepest though out my life. i started really teaching myself the guitar in college. went on a number of experiential travel/working adventures, bringing the guitar with me. i began to write songs. the process was closer to journal writing than anything else i can think of. i fell in love with it...found my own voice inside the music i was writing.
What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
hike and camp in the white mountains
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your business?
i'm terribly disorganized. it's a serious problem. i lose things. wallets, keys, phones, bandmates... i am incredibly thankful to have a great team around me to keep the train on the tracks!
When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
i honestly had no idea...wrote my first song when i was about 16. i kinda knew then what i was going to have to do with my life, but it took me a long time to work up the courage to actually take those feelings seriously...
In what way has your community impacted your development as a musician?
community is a very broad term. if you are referring to the community of people who listen to our music, we owe everything to them. they support us, inspire us, energize and ignite our performances, keep us believing in ourselves... our listener family consists of an incredibly diverse range of people across the country who for the most part, believe in the power of music and community in shaping the world around them. we are incredibly lucky...
What other artists out there do you love?
you may feel like this is a cop out, but i am continually inspired by anyone i come across who has had the courage to devote thieir life to artistic expression.
What does your future hold?
hopefully, the opportunity to continue touching people through music. (not in a creepy way, though)
