Adam & The Flood
Adam has always been caught in the flood. The onslaught of ideas, the rush of sounds, the chaos of creating. From project to project, rapper/singer Adam Arnone has always sought new ways make music. For much of his career, the New Hampshire native went by Adeem, pronounced A-D-M. He has 11 full length albums and 15 years of touring to his credit. Both as a solo artist and as the frontman for the pioneering indie hiphop group Glue, Adam has been pushing his way toward this new project. Now, he’s traded in samplers, records, and turntables for instruments. His sound is humble and aggressive, the music is strong and purposeful. Singing and rapping take turns pushing the point across—calm to beautiful to heavy to raw. His voice reaches through the static of the room as he screams his prayers to the ghost of Muddy Waters. The Flood—a five-piece band that includes guitars, drums, and bass lends depth and texture to Adam’s presence. His music takes questions of loss, love, and life and turns them into a cathartic experience for all who listen, connecting in a personal way that turns strangers into fans. To hear Adam live brings the music to a new level. Live, the recorded material becomes a new animal, something unique that connects and energizes. Adam is guiding himself and those around him toward action, connection, peace, and justice. They released their debut album“Move Toward Life” in the fall of 2017 and are set to release the follow up EP “Never Alone” in 2018.
Recently spreading his wings as a solo artist, Jarv first came to prominence in the VT rap scene with his group Maiden Voyage. He has since shared the stage with the likes of R.A. The Rugged Man A.F.R.O. (All FLows Reach Out), Nappy Roots, Masta Ace, and Blueprint.
