Whatever Adam Ezra does, he does with a lot of heart. Whether it is playing marathon shows of Springsteen-proportions or delivering beds to veterans, he proudly wears that heart on his sleeve.
The son of a folk musician, Mr. Ezra inherited the spirit of the folk revival music injects it into his music and his activism. While he and the Adam Ezra Group tour around the country he also runs a non-profit called RallySound, which seeks to engage grassroots, community based activism with live music events. Through his music and his activism, Mr. Ezra does things with a sense of trying to build community and connect with real people; it is this quality that has made the Adam Ezra Group one of New England’s great bands on the rise. Mr. Ezra and I chatted recently in DC and covered everything from songwriting and Bruce Springsteen to his wicked Boston accent and hilarious cover of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” Check out the interview below as well as more information on RallySound.
