Adam Ben Ezra


Double-Bass phenomenon and YouTube sensation Adam Ben Ezra; a man seemingly on a mission to bring his instrument from its status as a background note to the dominant front-presence it deserves. Along the way Adam has been pushing his craft in new, exciting directions and carving out a unique spot for himself in today’s international musical landscape. The term “multi-instrumentalist” is often overused but in this case it couldn’t be more fitting; Adam began playing the violin at age five and picked up the guitar at age nine. Read more on Last.fm
Double-Bass phenomenon and YouTube sensation Adam Ben Ezra; a man seemingly on a mission to bring his instrument from its status as a background note to the dominant front-presence it deserves. Along the way Adam has been pushing his craft in new, exciting directions and carving out a unique spot for himself in today’s international musical landscape. The term “multi-instrumentalist” is often overused but in this case it couldn’t be more fitting; Adam began playing the violin at age five and picked up the guitar at age nine. In recent years he has added the Clarinet, Oud and Cajon to his arsenal, largely teaching himself each time. However, it was an introduction to the double bass at age 16 that truly changed his life, when he instantly fell in love with the instrument’s rich sound. Drawing inspiration from heroes as diverse as Bach, Sting and Chick Corea, Adam made a clear decision to make his compositions current – no matter the tool used.

He has consciously added new colors to his palette, incorporating elements of Jazz, Latin and Mediterranean music into his playing. Whether he is playing original material or his wonderfully crafted cover arrangements, ABE is a creative force of nature who can transform a room full of strangers into lifelong fans in a moment. Regardless if he’s performing solo or as part of a trio with guitar and percussion, no two shows are alike as the talented 30-something expertly moves from one instrument to the next, sometimes within the same song, without ever missing a beat. Using a smart combination of effects and pedals, Adam regularly loops his notes in order to deliver an authentic wall of sound, worthy of a small orchestra. His efforts have not gone unnoticed and he is regularly invited to perform all around the world, notably supporting the likes of Richard Bona, Mike Stern and Victor Wooten. With a rise in requests for international appearances and a need to push his instrument further, Adam commissioned a special one-of-a-kind 5 strings bass with an unusual removable neck setup that allows him to travel even at late notice. Adam is part of a new breed of musicians using YouTube to promote his music and interact with fans.

His unique visuals, evident sense of humor and impressive editing touch makes for the perfect visual companion, and to-date his videos have clocked millions of views and tens of thousands of subscribers. Having recently started work on his debut album, due later this year, it is the special connection Adam has built with this community that drives the project. Adam Ben Ezra’s unique talent, superb musicianship and great personality makes him the ideal candidate to take an instrument that has been around for centuries and push it into the 21st century.
