It’s difficult to impart the roots-steeped, road-trippin' essence of the Adam Ezra Group (AEG) into a single word, but front man Adam Ezra nonetheless keeps one in mind as something of a mantra: “community”.
To the musicians at the heart of AEG, community is epitomized by a belief they all share, one that has long doubled as a mission statement for the group: namely, that making music together is itself a form of grassroots organizing, capable of nothing less than changing the world.
Such a groundbreaking concept makes all the sense in the world for a musical collective like AEG. After all, as Ezra sees it, the fans are really part of the band, active members of their movement who’ve always exercised a critical role in AEG’s ability to carry out its mission.
