Artist Bio

The Adam Ezra Group (AEG) is not just a band; they are a force to be reckoned with musically, personally and socially. Selling records and tickets is important to AEG, but they are committed to changing the world with their songs and their actions along the way. Ezra and his band are activists and community leaders as much as they are musicians and songwriters. Ezra has spent time living out of a van, farming in Canada, volunteering for the relief effort in Kosovo, and practicing environmental geography in South Africa. Whether as a kitchen hand or carpenter, teacher, athlete, or traveler, Ezra crams it all into the music, always challenging our perspective and often teetering somewhere between the ballsy rocker and sensitive poet. Through their non profit organization, RallySound, AEG helps people organize live music events that inspire communities and encourage grassroots activism.

The group’s live performances, sweaty, passionate affairs that have been compared to those of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, attracted the attention of Royal Avenue Records in 2010.  Ezra immediately signed with Royal Avenue and began working on the album that eventually became Ragtop Angel.  Royal Avenue paired the group with multi-platinum producer Aaron Johnson (best known for his work with The Fray) who has helped hone Adam’s ramblings into finely tuned songs that still retain the power and conviction developed from Ezra’s years of “do it yourself,” grassroots work ethic.

Rumor has it that Sir Tembo (headmaster of a school for wayward boys) took five of his most troubled enrollees on a safari to the Serengeti….a well meaning attempt to further their worldly awareness.

Soon after their arrival, and in the depths of late night darkness, the boys deceptively abandoned the tutorial voyage and scurried out of camp in pursuit of their own cultural expedition.  Haplessly, a few hours into the next morning’s light they were tragically abducted by native tribesman, caged in the center of a remote village and left with little to ponder less their eventual fate.

In no more than a week’s time, our captives frightfully witnessed a merciless midnight raid on the village by a band of rogue elephants.  Dubbed by the tribe’s elders as “The Grays” and their leader as “Atlas” (a bull beyond massive proportions) the pachydermic gang raged havoc and destruction beyond imaginable description.  The boys additionally discovered the attack was somewhat common and the tribe, obviously, had yet to devise the means to avert their repetitive tormentors.

Quick minded, the boys drew from the age old adage that “music calms the most savage of beasts” and devised an ingenious scheme that would hopefully provide a mutually beneficial resolve.  Incorporating hollowed logs and materials stripped from their penal stockade, they hastily fashioned crude percussive and string instruments, composed a repertoire of mesmerizing melodies with intertwined pulsating rhythms……and then sat in wait.

Upon the next assault, the boys immediately began to perform with unbridled passion and conviction.  Low and behold, the ingenious plan proved to be astonishingly effective….the bull became joyously hypnotized and the herd followed suit.  The plunder became a party and sublime harmony prevailed.

Above the most imaginable expectation, the elders were so gratefully impressed they not only released their captives, but also pulled bartered resources to provide the lads’ safe passage back to the US.

Well, you can easily imagine where the continuation of this fable leads us.  Being wayward, devilish and in lieu of desiring conservative careers, the boys (Alex, John, Adam, Andy and Stoltz) were surrealistically convinced.  Music was undeniably their salvation and taking this magical band to the street was nothing short of inevitable destiny.

So what to call the new adventure?

The unanimous decision….ATLAS GRAY.
