About \"Sunflower\" (Jason\'s most recent record)
\"What do Ray Charles, Lenny Kravitz and Ray Lamontagne
have in common? They are unlikely, yet prominent
influences for Jason Adamo\'s latest project. Adamo, a
very soulful, singer/songwriter now based in Chapel
Hill, has recently completed work on a NEW EP!
This new record is an ambitious and inspired attempt to put a
mark on the talent laden music scene in North Carolina
On December 10th, 2007, Jason Adamo
began recording his album to be released in Summer of
2008. The excitement and potential were plentiful, but
have now grown to magical proportions. With the
combination of Jason\'s soulful voice, inspiring
lyrics, and a handful of North Carolina\'s most
talented musicians, the album is equipped to fascinate
the music scene not just locally, but nationwide.
Recorded mostly in North Carolina at 313 Studios,
Jason Adamo, and producer Derek Olds
(whose experience includes projects involving some of
today\'s most respected artists and producers such as
Maroon 5, John Legend, James McKinney, and Ray
Contreras) decided to finish the album at the
well known Miami Sound Lab (owned by music icon Carlos
Alvarez) in Miami, Fl.
The spirit of the album breaths not only from the
passion of Jason\'s vocals, but in the dynamic
instrumentation that progresses from the first lyric
down to the very last chord.
Blessed with the contributions of so many talented
artists, including bassist Robert Sledge (Founding
Member of Ben Folds Five, International Orange),
guitarists, John Briggs (Formerly of Only Midnight),
and Josh Preslar (Josh Preslar Band), drummer Larz
Egon (Toured with Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesny, Clint
Black and more), backing vocals by Beverly Kain (an
amazing local Gospel talent), and many more, the album
is sure to arouse the ears of listeners.
soothing and emotive version of \"Purple Sky\" (one of
Jason\'s older songs whose heartfelt lyrics have
recently been dedicated to the US Troops, stationed
overseas), to the remarkable guitar driven \"Not
Ready\", each song has the ability to pull listeners
into the mood and message each strives to deliver.
