“Adam Ezra is one of the most promising songwriters to come along in years…
with the craftsmanship and insight to become a major voice in American music.”
– Ben Tishler, VH1
The Adam Ezra Group (AEG) is constantly proving that they are more than just a band, musically, personally, and socially. Winners of the 2013 Band of the Year and 2016 Song of the Year from the New England Music Awards, the band members often devote their time and creative energy to local charities and go out of their way to connect with fans. The band is led by lead singer, songwriter and guitarist, Adam Ezra, with Alex Martin on drums, Turtle on percussion, Corinna Smith on fiddle, Francis Hickey on bass and Josh Gold on keys.
Based in Boston, AEG catapulted to YouTube fame with their video “The Devil Came Up To Boston.” The band is a tireless touring outfit, playing upwards of 200 shows annually, including past appearances with Rusted Root, The Avett Brothers, Jason Mraz, The Goo Goo Dolls, Blues Traveler, Los Lobos, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Dwight Yoakam, and many more.
Ezra’s debut efforts in movie scoring lead to an appearance at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and the release of Adam Ezra Group’s 2016 album, aptly titled, Songs for a Movie. This 16 song marathon studio production is the culmination of three years of writing, planning, arranging, and recording for the independent film release, “Folk Hero & Funny Guy.” Much of the writing and recording occurred while on tour; in hotel rooms, hallways, green rooms, and while literally driving the American highways often referenced within the album.
Another element central to the Adam Ezra Group’s success is their commitment to giving back through their music. Ezra started his own non-profit organization called RallySound to inspire communities, grassroots activism, and civic engagement by helping create and organize socially conscious live music events.
The proceeds from their award-winning single “Let Your Hair Down” were donated toward micro-grants for cancer patients struggling to make ends meet while in treatment. The group also hosts a free festival each year called The Ramble. Last year over 3,000 people came out, and another 2,000 people tuned in via livestreaming from around the country, and they raised enough money to help build a handicap accessible home for Sergeant Chris Gomes, wounded during his second tour in Iraq.
The Adam Ezra Group will be on the road throughout the United States, playing music from Songs for a Movie, and working on their next studio release. Their goal: to reach as many people as possible while sharing their belief in the power of community and the human spirit.
