Adam Ezra Group – acoustic roots/rock. The dynamic, independent, live band takes a giant step towards the mainstream with their new release, “View from the Root”. Grounded in Ezra’s intellectual/pop songwriting, the Group displays an energy and versatility, often compared to Springsteen, Simon, and Matthews.
Ezra, an experientialist as much as a musician or songwriter, 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 it been as 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.
The group’s live performances have made them a staple in Boston and throughout the northeast. The Group shows their versatility by headlining full band rock shows at major Boston venues (Paradise, Roxy, Middle East) while Adam routinely sells out acoustic performances at venues such as the revered Club Passim. Rated one of New England’s top 5 bands by Ski Magazine in 2007, the Group also devotes over 10% of their touring to community outreach and activism.
