Adam Plomaritas w/sg Jason Dennie
Ypsilanti native Adam Plomaritas presents an onslaught of tight, satisfying rock 'n roll, tastefully seasoned with soul and blues. You might say that Mariah Carey, Michael McDonald, and Stevie Wonder were eaten by a Telecaster-toting grizzly. But perhaps Adam is most aptly described as the most winsome head-snap in the Detroit-metro music scene. Adam writes infectious tunes with pure-hearted lyrics and rhythms that could rile any dance floor. With an arresting powerhouse vocal delivery, guitar chops no one can argue with, and a seasoned crew of some of the best accompanying musicians in the area, he can definitely bring the party. Adam has played the coffee house/bar scene for almost a decade and has taken the stage with some of the region's favorite acts including Theo Katzman, Hannah Winkler, Abigail Stauffer, and Wayward Roots. He has also shared bills with national acts The Spring Standards, Switchfoot, and Jason Upton. March 2012 brought Adam's EP release entitled "Leave the Light On." His first single from the EP, "Hard Way," has received regular airplay on Ann Arbor radio. Off of the momentum of that EP, he launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording of his full length album, "The Hard Way," due out this January. "Not only was the album completely fan-funded, we decided to track it almost entirely to analog tape and track everything live, with everybody in the same room, whenever possible. The energy of a real band of people playing instruments in a room together can’t be beat. To keep that energy high and upbeat at the end of a twelve-hour recording session is as rewarding as it is difficult, but when people get the album, they'll feel the emotion that went into it and I really think they'll dig it," Adam says. This "The Hard Way" album release show will include special guest Jason Dennie.
