"M Music and Musicians Magazine (National) Review"

The Jason Adamo Band’s latest album bulges with emotive anthems, surging melodies, towering refrains and passionate performances. This is music that would sound just fine on rock radio playlists between mainstays U2, Coldplay and Bruce Springsteen. Transistor bodes well for that possibility, with songs like “Los Angeles,” “Guilty Bystander” and “Far Away From Here” conveying the angst and conviction a stadium-savvy outfit must be able to deliver. Fortunately, the group also knows how to rein it in, as evidenced by the spunky shuffle of “Patricia” and the brittle ballads “Bring It Back” and “Innocent.” Ultimately, Transistor aims high—and happily, hits its mark.

An interesting thing happens when a tight 6-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. Although a native of Raleigh, NC, Adamo is also recognized as a staple in the New York City underground music scene and is featured in writer Heather Jacks’ upcoming book and multimedia project on busking, The Noise Beneath The Apple. Jacks shines light on 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 John Briggs (bass), Doug Casteen (lead guitar), Shedrick Williams (drums), 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.

The JAB now prepares to independently release their new EP Bricks & Mortar on June 5, 2012, following their 2010 full-length Transistor. Recorded at K House Recording Studio in Raleigh, NC, the EP was engineered by K House owner Mark McKee and Derek Olds, and produced by the band’s own John Briggs, who also produced Transistor.
