“Performing and recording with Adam De Lucia is a wonderful experience. He is a rare artist whose free artistic creativity combines with his broad command of technology, blending perfectly to produce a spirited, intense and moving musical landscape.” . . . Michael Ghegan (Michael Ghegan, Justin Timberlake, Jamiroquai)
“Adam is a multi-talented composer and guitarist. It was a pleasure to play on his latest project CP1, and I look forward to hearing more music from him in the future!” . . . Chris Tarry (three-time Juno Award winner — sometimes known as the 'Canadian Grammy' — and leader of The Chris Tarry Group, co-founder of Metalwood, the award-winning Canadian Jazz Fusion band)
“Adam is a seriously talented musician / composer / producer. I recommend him highly.” . . . Timothy Lefebvre (Rudder, Krantz Carlock Lefebvre, Mz.)
From the fiercely percussive and dark, knockabout sonic of ‘The Far Groove’ to the lyrical brightness of ‘The Theme (Virtue)’; the smooth and resonant ‘Cycle Plus One’—a tonal tour de force in seven keys—with bass virtuoso Chris Tarry as a featured soloist to ‘The Dream’ with a raw and brassy intro followed successively by a warm, odd-meter passage, alternating 4/4 to 3/4 mixed meter, and restrained guitar phrasing in two “bookend” passages of trading, this album is the result of 16 years of musical choices and periods of wood-shedding so intense that it was like a full-time job—as much as literally eight hours a day for three months straight. Beside the able Tarry, some of the best playing can be heard on ‘96 Heart Beats Per Minute’, with its rhythm-conscious guitar solo brimming with emotional power, and ‘Caution (Rise Of The Tyrant)’, a must-hear.
