Bill West takes great pride in the art of song crafting. If you enjoy the sounds of Sting, The Samples, Bruce Hornsby, Seal, Coldplay, Jackson Browne, and U2 – then you will understand and enjoy his latest CD, “Thanks For Listening”. This disc features 12 brilliant songs. Check out “Rearrange Me” and the beautiful “Borrow My Eyes”.
An interesting thing happens when a tight 5-piece band of respectively talented musicians ditches gimmicks and masks; honest, unpretentious, full-bodied music is born. The Jason Adamo Band started with the man himself, a truly soulful singer with inspired lyrics and raspy falsetto. Currently residing in Raleigh, NC, Adamo has lived in New York City and Nashville immersing himself in each cities music and songwriting scene. Jason recently received his first cut on a Major Label (“Beautiful Believer”) on Brett Young’s Big Machine Label Group debut LP “Brett Young”.
His version of “Beautiful Believer” has been released on an EP as part of a collection of songs written during his time spent living in Nashville (2013-2015). Adamo’s Joe Cocker-like “bold grit and heart,” and ability to take a captive audience from “engaged silence” to a “floor stomping, rollicking, good time.” With the addition of Doug Casteen (lead guitar), Alex McKee (bass), Fabio Consani (harmonica, acoustic guitar), and David Littlejohn (keyboard), who all bring years of unique experiences and influences, The Jason Adamo Band (JAB) creates a brotherly vibe and puts a new spin on Adamo’s classic soul.
