"NWI Music - Adam Savage"

Growing up in the Hammond/Hessville area with influences by rap and hip-hop artists such as 2-Pac, Dr. Dre, and Eazy-E, Adam Savage started writing his own lyrics when he was only 13 years old. Even though his influences were mostly Gangster Rap, he developed his own style and concepts to write about.

Adam calls his style club hip-hop. It is more of a Black Eyed Peas inspired uptempo, party music. This year was the first year that Adam started performing live. He has done three shows thus far. Adam’s first was at the Cubby Bear in Chicago, which led to an opening spot at Meyers Castle for Twista, and then he headlined a large show at The Warehouse in Valparaiso.

His success has happened really fast. With only three live shows under his belt, Adam is already in a regular rotation on 103.5 Kiss FM. He contacted Kiss FM and they told him that they had a local music day where you could sit down with the program director and if he liked your music, he would put it on the radio. When Adam sat down, the program director loved his music so much, he set him up with an on-air interview with Ty Bentli, who started playing Adam’s music which led to people calling in and requesting it. He has also been entered into a contest on Kiss FM for a chance to play at the Coca-Cola Lounge for a record contract. This contest started in July, but will continue through August. It goes off of votes, so make sure that you go to www.1035kissfm.com and vote for Adam Savage.

In 1999, Adam released an online and local mixtape titled "Tracks From The Past" which included 20 songs that Adam had worked on in his younger years as an artist. And in May, he released his first full length album titled “Hot Mess”. The theme for Hot Mess is a party scene and he combines house music and techno with hip-hop. Adam is 25 and married, but still likes to have a good time, so every song is a feel good track, but also tells an emotional story about where he is going. You can get Adam’s CD on iTunes.

His ultimate goal is that of most other artists, to get a recording contract, but also to do more shows, and he aspires to be like LMFAO, which is his style of music.

You can check out Adam at www.adamsavagemusic.com and if you want to see him, Adam will be performing live on Saturday August 21st at The Warehouse in Valparaiso.

"Adam Savage brings 'Hot Mess' to the masses"

Region–reared pop newcomer Adam Savage hasn't completely surrendered to the digital download era when it comes to his forthcoming debut, "Hot Mess."

For his upcoming performance with platinum–plus Windy City–bred hip–hop hit maker Twista and region favorites David Costa the Starving Artist, Savage will have hard copies of his songs available to the masses.

"The pros of that is you have a physical copy that you could sell at a venue and present to fans after they hear how you sound after you perform after a show," he said. "The cons are that people download illegal music all the time, and that's not good. I know that it's inevitable."

Performing together Saturday at a 21-and-older show at Meyer's Castle in Dyer, Savage, was reared in Hammond and currently resides in northwest suburban Crystal Lake.

Savage cited hip–hop as his initial musical passion, counting Tupac, Notorious B.I.G amongst his early teenage influences but, in terms of his own music on "Hot Mess," leans toward the pop–minded vibes of the Black Eyed Peas and LMAFO in regard to his own music.

"I like the positivity and energy and party music–type feel," he said. "I think that's where the future of Top 40 type of music is going to."

Savage penned a baker's dozen worth of songs for what would become "Mess" and eventually recorded eight for the set. He began work on "Mess" which was produced by Lansing–based producer Revelation 8:10 at his Lansing–based Eyesee Media recording studio, early last year and put the finishing touches on it last month.

To whittle down the tracks on "Mess" to eight songs, Savage looked to his peers for advice.

"I had groups of friends listen to the songs and feel them out to see which ones were actually going to be strong hits," he said. "I didn't want to put anything on my CD that was filler or was a garbage track, so I had friends and acquaintances feel out the tracks with me."

Chris Figgy, Costa co–vocalist and co–founder of Tri–City–Eye Entertainment, is producing Saturday's concert, which also serves as a record release party for the band's latest effort, "The Starving Artist."

"Twista is the only person that basically shares the same kind of style that we have, except he's more rap and we're more hip–hop with a band," Figgy said.

Twista's latest effort, "Category F5," was released last year. Also scheduled to perform are Aim Tru, Starchild and DJ Navic.

Bio

Adam Savage:

Hammond Indiana is the city where Adam began his music career. At age 13 he became so bound to Hip Hop and Rap that he decided to give it a shot for himself. His influences growing up were 2pac, Snoop Dog, Dr. Dre, Eazy E. Even though his influences were mainly "Gangster Rap", he developed his own style and concepts to write about. In 1999 he released an online and local mixtape entitled "Tracks From The Past" which included 20 songs that Adam had worked on in his younger years as an artist.

In 2010, Adam switched up his style and began creating more uptempo Pop/Club Party music. This move created a buzz about his music and single "Popular Girl", which has landed him a live on air interview with Ty Bentli of Chicago's Kiss 103.5 as well as rotation of the song. His current project is entitled "Hot Mess" and will be available in all online retail markets as well as stores in June of 2010.
