Biography
this is our band. we are lovely, happy people...

On 11/11/11 the Boston based, Adam Ezra Group, officially released their much anticipated album, "Ragtop Angel." The CD is their debut on Royal Avenue Records and was produced by multiplatinum producer Aaron Johnson, best known for his work with The Fray. Upon it's release, "Ragtop Angel" shot to the top of the Amazon charts (peaking at #4 behind John Mayer and Sarah Bareilles) and was featured on iTunes "New and Noteworthy Rock Albums" in December of 2011.

The group’s live performances, sweaty, passionate affairs that have been compared to those of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, attracted the attention of Royal Avenue Records in 2010. Ezra immediately signed with Royal Avenue and began working on the album that eventually became Ragtop Angel. Royal Avenue paired the group with producer Aaron Johnson who has helped hone Adam’s ramblings into finely tuned pop songs that still retain the power and conviction developed from Ezra’s years of “do it yourself,” grassroots work ethic.

The first single, “Takin’ Off,” has been getting added to playlists on radio stations across the country. The group also released their first video, “Miss Hallelujah,” filmed on location throughout their hometown of Boston.

But The Adam Ezra Group (AEG) is not just a band; they are a force to be reckoned with musically, personally and socially. Selling records and tickets is important to AEG, but they are committed to changing the world with their songs and their actions along the way. Ezra and his band are activists and community leaders as much as they are musicians and songwriters. Ezra has spent time living out of a van, farming in Canada, volunteering for the relief effort in Kosovo, and practicing environmental geography in South Africa. Whether as a kitchen hand or carpenter, teacher, athlete, or traveler, Ezra crams it all into the music, always challenging our perspective and often teetering somewhere between the ballsy rocker and sensitive poet. AEG currently contributes 25% of their touring to benefit causes in communities across the country and worldwide.

Having toured with Rusted Root, The Avett Brothers, Jason Mraz, Corey Smith, Deer Tick, The Goo Goo Dolls, Blues Traveler, Los Lobos, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Dwight Yoakam, and many more, the Adam Ezra Group has graduated from the local Boston scene to the national level with a momentum that is catapulting them towards being one of the country’s most talked about bands.
