Brought together by a passion for music and unity in the face of adversity, Adam’s Attic inspires listeners with an honest and open sound. From their base roots in New Orleans to their current home of Los Angeles, the power pop/rock band has matured musically and captivated audiences on a global scale.
“While here (New Orleans), the band proved itself to be one of the rising stars on the scene,” remarked Todd Miller, Talent Buyer for House of Blues.
Through hard work and personal sacrifice, the band has earned its place as one of the largest independent acts on the musical circuit today. This group has headlined numerous sold out shows at the House of Blues and Hard Rock Cafe, toured four different continents, played for crowds exceeding 11,000, received sponsorships in excess of $115,000, and penned more than fifty original songs with the promise of more compelling hits to come.
With the gaining momentum propelling the band forward, Adam’s Attic, has gained the respect and attention of music industry professionals and potential placement in future film productions.
In August 2005, one of the five deadliest hurricanes in U.S. history struck the north-central Gulf Coast region destroying much of their home in New Orleans. Through the devastation, Adam’s Attic was forced out of its comfort zone and responded by bonding together and stepping out on a limb.
Joe Henry, Adam’s Attic front man, said, “Some of us lost everything we had, with the exception of our music gear and some personal items; all of the venues we played were closed or out of business. Only a week before Katrina, we were given the most amazing opportunity to open for Lifehouse at House of Blues New Orleans. We had to act.”
Leaving behind everything they had built in the hopes of recreating past successes, the musicians moved across the country and settled in California. Adam’s Attic had nothing but their gear and souls brimming with emotions. Relying on each other, they rose to the challenge continually producing positive and inspirational music for fans.
The music is written about the experiences of real life. Although we all have struggles, the hard times are merely a trial by fire; perseverance through adversity creates the opportunities for success.
This band has proven that it has the elements necessary to make great music, draw large crowds, and entertain fans. With the upcoming January 4, 2008, release of their album “Skylines and City Lights,” listeners will get an audible experience of what it is like to tour the globe through the lives of the band.
