Adam's Attic HOB CD Release Party for Can Anybody Hear Me
Adam's Attic celebrates the release of their new album, Can Anybody Hear Me, with a CD Release Party at House of Blues Anaheim on July 27 at 7 p.m.
Concert promoter, Derreck Benoit, says, "Adam's Attic has a history of consistently packing out shows at House of Blues through self-promotion."
Adam's Attic takes the stage at 7:00 p.m. The group's performance will be followed by OKT, Kingston and Vice, and Treetop Flyer.
After the concert, band members will mingle with fans and sign autographs. "You realize the influence and the power behind the music when you watch Adam's Attic interact with fans," Benoit says.
The collection of ten tracks, Can Anybody Hear Me, is set for official release on July 8. Originally hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana, the band now resides in Orange County, California. To promote the upcoming release, the four piece group completed a fifth international tour with stops in Egypt, Jordan, Greece, and Turkey.
For Adam's Attic, it is all about change and taking chances. Love can change a life "in the blink of an eye". Love has taken them on a personal journey farther than they have ever imagined through various "skylines and city lights". In search for the answer to question, "Where is love," Adam's Attic believes that it is pointless to be on a stage if they do not use that power to influence and uplift people. Traveling down the road through natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina, heartache, health scares, the Gulf oil spill, or the search for love has taken them "off the wire" into the unknown. As this journey takes the band to new and exciting international places sharing their music, Adam's Attic asks, "Can anybody hear me?"
Can Anybody Hear Me departs from previous albums. The approach to recording pushes the boundaries of layering tracks of drums, bass, guitar, and vocals as in previous albums, In the Blink of an Eye (2005), Skylines and City Lights (2009), or Where Is Love (2011), and it surpasses the simplicity of the acoustic sessions, Off the Wire (2013). With the alliance of a dynamic Danish duo, Thomas Barsoe and Philip Halloun, as producers, Adam's Attic treats each track individually layering tracks of pop, rock, dance, and sometimes rap interlaced with melodies and lyrics of inspiration.
When the band met Thomas Barsoe in late 2011, a metamorphosis began with collaboration in the songwriting and production of the Off the Wire (2013) and Can Anybody Hear Me (2014). Barsoe, a Danish soul singer/songwriter, is most notably known for hitting the top of the 2005 music charts in Japan, the world's second largest music market. Currently, the Dane has set up shop in Orange County, California, as the founder of the OC Hit Factory, where the Henry brothers of Adam's Attic met him. Through Barsoe's recommendation, the band was introduced to Philip Halloun, and the synergy began.
The album sequence and track lengths are as follows:
"Can Anybody Hear Me" (03:35)
"If It's Not Too Late" (03:35)
"Heart Is on Fire" (03:49)
"Like No One" (03:29)
"Silver Moon" (03:27)
"Sound of Love" (03:09)
"Love Will Be the Way" (02:46)
"Blink of an Eye" (02:56)
"Cold December" (04:14)
Adam's Attic is comprised of Joe Henry (lead vocalist), Derek Henry (bass guitarist/backing vocalist), Scott Boaz (drummer), and Frank DeSalvo (guitarist). Can Anybody Hear Me was co-produced by Adam's Attic and OC Hit Factory producers, Thomas Barsoe and Philip Halloun. When it came to the album artwork, Andrew Geraci's imagination leaped into an atmospheric and mysterious design to represent the collaborative creative passion of the recording. To represent the band, Leigh Anne Langman's eye captured the image inside the cover. Stephanie Escalante edited the band's photo.
