The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, etc. We’re also quite the fans of Son Volt, Wilco, and Counting Crows. We wanted to make a record like our influences did - that sounded like a band playing together in a room.” “Topically, these are the most revealing songs I’ve written thus far. They are all rooted in personal experience, but are open to interpretation.” A critical element in Seth Adam’s music is the passion and impact of the group’s live performances.
Seth has assembled a crack line-up of seasoned musicians that bring color from a wide spectrum of musical genres. These band members, fluent in the language of rock & roll, alt-country, and classic pop, propel the live show and give a modern and forceful lift to Adam’s vintage musical vision. The assemblage (Seth Adam - vocals, acoustic and electric guitar; Gerry Giaimo - lead guitar, acoustic guitar and vocals; Anthony Bianco - drums; and Gerard Bianco - Bass) is a melting pot of talent, a singular unit with a common stride, creating timeless pop-rock music in the Americana tradition. Through performances throughout the northeast, Seth Adam and the band have put together a show of amazing energy. They have opened for artists such as Will Hoge, Alexa Ray Joel, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers and Chris Barron (former Spin Doctors).
These live offerings continue to convert the most unattached, jaded listener into rock & roll believers with liberal doses of brawny electric guitar and sensitive acoustic forays, flooded with emotion. It is no wonder that Seth Adam’s performance caused Roger Friedman of Showbiz411.com to proclaim, “Adam’s appearance last night in New York was a rock revelation.” Since the inception of the project, Seth and company have released several recordings, including the Seth Adam EP in 2006, Live In New Haven 11.8.06 in 2007, the full-length Where You Come From in 2008, and the acoustic EP Everything Is Something Else in 2009. In 2007, Seth’s song “Get Out” was licensed to Volkswagen for their 2007 Sights and Sounds campaign. Now, with the release of Amplify, Seth and company will continue to deliver on the promise of vintage-laced, Americana influenced rock & roll. “I’m not concerned about trends.
I’m concerned about making the best possible art that I can,” explains Adam. “I think this record is a great representation of that. I’m proud.” PRESS QUOTES "For example, during 'Troubled Times,' Seth wowed the audience's ears with deep vocal emotions that brought out the sentimental realism found in the lyrics..." - Southside, Southside On The Town "This is the best "unsigned" group in America, and the hardest-working best live act in indie rock. All the songs on Where You Come From are potential radio hits, so catchy that once you've heard them it's hard to get them out of your head.
That is, if there were still pop/rock radio, they'd be all over "Promise" ... I promise ..." - Roger Friedman "Adam, formerly of the band Green Inside, has developed a quite reputation in the area as one of the most talented songwriters in the New Haven area. Taking cues from artists like the Counting Crows, Tom Petty and Wilco, Adam combines a sharp pop aesthetic with deep rooted Americana." - Jeffrey Petrin, PLAY New Haven "I would, without a doubt, throw on a Seth Adam record before a John Mayer or Rob Thomas album. And it’s somewhat unfair to even mention those two when talking about Where You Come From, because Adam and his band rock a little harder than those comparisons, but, you know, you need comparisons in a review." - Patrick Ferrucci, New Haven Register Read more on Last.fm.
