There have been so many things happening over the last weeks, we thought we would fill you in on some changes happening within Adam Ezra Group:
FAREWELL TO OUR BROTHER, FRANK!!!
Francis Hickey has been a huge part of Adam Ezra Group over the last 5 years. Not only is he an extremely talented bassist, but he has become a deep friend and brother to all of us. As close as we all are, life on the road is not for everyone, and after almost 1000 shows with AEG, Francis has decided it's time to try keepin his feet on the ground for a while. He'll still be makin music, and you can continue to follow his exploits at francishickey.com or check out one of his new projects here: Broken Luxury
Rumor has it, Francis is going to make an appearance at this year's Ramble so expect some pretty joyous reuning at the after party!!
A NEW ROLE FOR JOSH GOLD!!
For over 12 years "Cousin Josh" has had an enormous impact on the sound of Adam Ezra Group. He's played on 8 of our albums, performed thousands of shows with us, and over the last few years he has produced our last 7 band and solo releases!
As many of you know, during this time he and his wife Sarah have managed to bring 3 amazing daughters into the world. For Josh there's nothing more important to him than his family, and since he is such an important part of our family, we are working on ways that he can continue to be a part of what we do while also getting to spend time at home with his little ones.
For this next chapter, Josh will continue to produce and shape our sound in the studio, and if you plan on coming out to some of our bigger shows, there's a good chance you'll see him up there on stage with us!! When not working with AEG, Josh will be be spending time with his family and continuing to produce great music, some of which for artists you've seen out on the road with us!!

WELCOME TO OUR NEW BROTHER, POCHE PONCE!!
When we first had a chance to play with Poche a few months back he blew us away with his bass playing, singing, and spirit. For those of you who have seen him out with us over the past weeks, you know he's an easy guy to fall in love with. What you may not know, is that social and animal rights activism has played a huge role in his life. In fact, he will tell you that our commitment to community is one of the biggest reasons he's joined Adam Ezra Group. Poche is from Bolivia, and he and his family run an animal refuge there that we think you should check out and support! Senda Verde Wildlife Sanctuary
