QUOTES:

"Not since Springsteen and Bono have I seen a lead singer with his talent and charisma."
   - Jack Casey, General Manager WERS radio in Boston


"Adam Ezra is one of the most promising songwriters to come along in years... with the craftsmanship and insight to become a major voice in American music."
   - Ben Tishler, VH1


“Hands down, the best roots rock band to come out of Boston since the Del Fuegos."
   - The Alternate Root

“Ezra's music comes across in a genre­blending style. Dave Matthews… Springsteen.... U2... Jackson Browne... But all those comparisons to better known musicians only reinforce the inescapable conclusion: the Adam Ezra Group is one of the most versatile and potent rock units anywhere."
   - Patriot Ledger



"As with all AEG events, it wasn't just a concert. It was a celebration between a band and a fan base that have developed personal synergy."
  - Bill Copeland Music News


"They are one of the few bands out right now whose music is deep and real. It was an honor to tour with them."
  - Michael Glabicki, Rusted Root


"It’s rare that we come across songwriting that is at one both introspective and personal for both performer and audience. That would be the case for Boston-based roots rock band The Adam Ezra Group. Their knack is telling a story/evoking an emotion without telling the whole story – a talent that goes beyond working a great sound."
  - Beat Crave


"Adam Ezra ... made an impact with his muscular voice and his sharp lyrics."
  - Rick Massimo, Providence Journal


"Boston's new voice in acoustic rock!"
  - Boston Phoenix


"Named Band Of The Year at the 2013 New England Music Awards, The Adam Ezra Group had the fans shouting out song requests before the band even picked up a violin or banjo. Ezra is an extraordinary frontman. They completely rocked the crowd with their Springsteen-esque live show."
  - Outside the Box Festival


"I don't know that I have seen a room explode as it did when the Adam Ezra Group came out. Superb!"
  - Phil Simon, Simon Says Booking


"Adam Ezra writes with the heart of a troubadour and sings like a rock star. He is truely a fresh voice in singer/songwriter scene."
  - Catie Curtis


"If Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews, James Taylor, and Jack Johnson had a baby, this would be it. Lyrics are unique. A melding of sounds, all enjoyable. This must be heard!"
  - ACE Music Conference


"Adam Ezra has the uncanny ability to attract and hold the attention of concertgoers of all ages. As a songwriter, his words connect with his audience on many levels. As a performer, Adam gives all of his energy, attention, and emotion to every show. It's difficult not to get caught up in what he's doing onstage, a fact proven by his quickly growing audience.
  - Scott Hayward, Tupelo Music Hall


"You immediately get two things out of Adam Ezra's music. One, He's a damn good songwriter surrounded by a formidable cast of players. Two, he's thinking about things on a different level...brilliant singer/songwriter"
  - Reb Landers, Alternate Root Magazine
