The first time I saw Adam Ezra play live, he had a cold. I usually feel that a cold ought to keep a singer off the stage until it goes away, but Adam Ezra was somehow able to use it to his advantage; his voice was in tune if a little husky, and he told a few stories and poked some fun at his position.
I was impressed with the way he handled that situation and, after finding out more information about him and his music, I discovered that he’s a pretty impressive guy himself: he spent time volunteering with relief efforts and various causes in different parts of the world, and he started a nonprofit organization that seeks to build community through coordinating musical events.
Throughout all of it, Adam Ezra has kept his positive outlook and general good humor, as is evident on a recent video offering and can be seen in the way in which he interacts with fans. Knowing that a musician loves and is committed to the music always makes for a good performance, which you will be able to see at Infinity Hall on August 30.
Opening for the Adam Ezra Group will be Torrington, CT singer/songwriter Sarah Barrios, who was the first winner of Infinity Hall’s Open Mic Big Stage Competition in May.
