Adam Ezra Group

Most of these guys in the band are from the east coast, well... I'm from the FAR east coast - Malaysia! I spent a couple of years in Australia (pursuing a degree in engineering) and eventually ended up in Boston after receiving a scholarship from Berklee College of Music in 2008. I would like to say that I have had a colorful life outside of music but that would be an inaccurate comment because music has always played a huge role in my life.

My main influence is God, but my musical influences are difficult to list - I would listen and play any music as long as it sounds good. I love Oscar Peterson, Charles Mingus, John Coltrane, J Dilla, Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Paquito D'Rivera, Basement Jaxx, Portishead, James Brown, Michel Camilo, D'Angelo... Hah, what a weird looking list! Check out the unfamiliar ones - you'll see how random it gets!

Since I got to Boston almost four years ago, I have been blessed abundantly to continually find work as a hired gun - from live broadcast concerts in 16,000 capacity indoor stadiums to studio session works with Grammy Award Winning producers. But nothing has prepared me for how incredibly hard the Adam Ezra Group works on and off stage.

Nelson was an incredible bass player for AEG from the fall of 2012 to the summer of 2013 before he moved back to be with his family in Malaysia.
