ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Torchy, funky songs, from lush to bare bones! Haunting melodies and rich harmonies with shades of jazz, classical, rock, pop, funk and rhythm-and-blues. Lyrics range from the state of the heart to the state of the world, with a sense of irony, poetry, spirituality and storytelling. Featuring singer Wendy Boulding, with intimate and stirring performances by various lead & backing singers backed by keyboards, saxophones, guitars, harmonica, bass & percussion.

"Truly enjoyable... serious musical talent... music has the same haunting intrigue [as] Todd Rundgren's..." - Alan Schlein, Journalist, Billboard Magazine, Rolling Stone Magazine

"Wendy Boulding has a superb voice..." - Henry Roa, Producer, Who's in the Crib, MNN Television

"Phenomenal... amazing piano... the songs are killer... commercially strong as rock musical theatre... fabulous, connected singing, tight accompaniment and natural sound... I'm absolutely blown away." - Bob Cusack, Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist

"...one of the best songwriters on the planet. One reason for that is his musical taste is impeccable, and it shows in his songs!" - Dennis Pettas, Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist

"...a musical waiting to happen..." - Anne Ptasznik, Writer

"EMILY is a touchingly unsentimental historical romance and a sly tribute not only to Ms. Dickinson, but to all artists at odds with the aesthetic conventions of their time. I think there’s more good, real music in the intro than many composers produce in a lifetime. Not one to disappoint, Adam follows that up with a soaring, classic melody that takes the piece up to a whole new level, culminating with the evocative, pealing funeral bells in the finale."
- Peter Stoller, Producer/Singer/Songwriter

"Inspired by my own experience near Ground Zero on September 11, 2001, I wrote KEEP WALKING for New York Artists Unite to Support World Trade Center Disaster Relief. It was performed there with Wendy Boulding the week of its completion, and later at Marianne Williamson's opening rally for the Department of Peace Campaign in New York City." - A.L.

Customer, Fan, and Psychologist
A cohesive, consistent album with no clinkers. Every song is excellent. It's really like hearing one whole concert. 'Walking on Thin Ice' is a powerful, moving "coming of age" song. 'Keep Walking' really takes me back to 9/11. 'Do You Feel It?' is the best song of its genre I've ever heard. And the lyrics in 'All Caught Up in Nothing' and 'Everything She Needs' are actually "cognitive behavioral" and very well-written. They encourage or inspire us to think more rationally to reduce our own psychological or emotional distress.
