Adam Ezra Group:
The Adam Ezra Group, a Boston based Roots-Rock band, concerts have quickly become the stuff of legend around New England, earning them the title “Band of The Year” at the 2013 New England Music Awards, followed by two years of tour dates including tours with Rusted Root, Willie Nelson, Marshall Tucker, Taj Majal, The Wailers, Dwight Yokam, Corey Smith, Chris Daughtry, and The Dirty Heads to name a few.
Combining songwriting, dynamic musicianship, and often a philanthropic element at their shows, AEG has built a community of fans who will seemingly follow them to the ends of the earth. With over 200 high-energy shows a year, the Adam Ezra Group is committed to changing the world with their songs and their actions along the way.
The Adam Ezra Group recently released the first track off of their next studio album along with a new music video. Produced by Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta (American Authors, Karma Killers, Young Rising Sons), and co-written by the duo and Adam Ezra, "Let Your Hair Down," appears to be the mainstream release so many have been waiting for.
Consistent with their mission as musician/activists you won't see any scantily clad teen models in this video. Instead, Adam Ezra and his band have gathered together a room full of survivors and volunteers from some of the many cancer organizations they work with each year. In doing so, "Let Your Hair Down," a song that speaks to living for the moment, becomes a statement about the power of community and the human spirit. For the next year, the group is donating proceeds of the song and video to families who need financial support while going through cancer treatment.
Ezra has also started his own non-profit organization called RallySound, and the band dedicates a huge percentage of their touring to giving back in a number of ways. “The Ramble,” their annual fundraiser and festival attracts thousands to the north shore of Massachusetts each year. In recent years they have raised enough money to take 14 homeless veterans off the streets and place them into safe housing, as well as feed 20 struggling veteran families in New England for an entire year through local CSA’s.
“Ezra's music tends to come across in a genre-blending style. Dave Matthews… Springsteen.... U2... Jackson Browne... But all those comparisons only reinforce the inescapable conclusion, that the Adam Ezra Group is one of the most versatile and potent rock units anywhere." - Patriot Ledger
"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
"Not since Springsteen and Bono have I seen a lead singer with his talent and charisma." -- Jack Casey, General Manager WERS radio in Boston
