Where Is Love
Brought together by a passion for music and unity in the face of adversity, Adam's Attic inspires listeners with an honest and open sound. From their base roots in New Orleans to their current home of Los Angeles, the alternative, pop/rock band has matured musically and captivated audiences on a global scale. "While here (New Orleans), the band proved itself to be one of the rising stars on the scene," remarked Todd Miller, Talent Buyer for House of Blues. Through hard work and personal sacrifice, the independent band knows the meaning of developing a solid marketing strategy and building a strong foundation. The group has seized one success after another by headlining numerous sold out shows at the House of Blues and Hard Rock Cafe, touring four different continents, playing for crowds exceeding 11,000, receiving sponsorships in excess of $115,000, and penning more than fifty original songs registered with BMI. With the accumulation of small successes that led to becoming darlings of New Orleans, Adam's Attic is a rising star in the world market. In February 2010, Adam's Attic became the first runner up in the KTLA (Los Angeles) Battle of the Bands competition with 955 votes only slightly short of the winning bands 959 votes. The band performed live on the KTLA Morning News for a televised viewership of 3 million plus. With the momentum gained from the KTLA competition, many performance opportunities have propelled the Adam's Attic forward like Universal City Walk, United Way's Walk United at Angel Stadium, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel, CBS Television, etc. Within 120 days, Adam's Attic made a second appearance on KTLA Morning News on June 2010. In August 2005, one of the five deadliest hurricanes in U.S. history struck the north-central Gulf Coast region destroying much of their home in New Orleans. Through the devastation, Adam's Attic was forced out of it's comfort zone and responded by bonding together and stepping out on a limb. Joe Henry, Adam's Attic front man, said, "Some of us lost everything we had, with the exception of our music gear and some personal items; all of the venues we played were closed or out of business. Only a week before Katrina, we were given the most amazing opportunity to open for Lifehouse at House of Blues New Orleans. We had to act." Leaving behind everything they had built in the hopes of recreating past successes, the musicians moved across the country and settled in California. Adam's Attic had nothing but their gear and souls brimming with emotions. Relying on each other, they rose to the challenge continually producing positive and inspirational music for fans. The music is written about the experiences of real life. Although we all have struggles, the hard times are merely a trial by fire; perseverance through adversity creates the opportunities for success. This band has proven that it has the elements necessary to make great music, draw large crowds, and entertain fans. Listeners will get an audible experience of what it is like to tour the globe through the lives of the band.
