Musical Background: Howdy fellow musicheads, I’m Adam aka Akwitz and a self-proclaimed music aficionado. I’m a lover and collector of music as well as a musician myself. I’m a classically trained tenor singer, have done my fair share of lyric writing in the past and dabble a bit at guitar. I grew up in Baltimore, which has its own brand of local music scene and lived in NYC for 6 years, two of which I spent working in the music industry at Warner Music Group which only diversified my musical tastes more. I have since moved back to and reside in Baltimore and am an avid concert-goer and record store peruser. I listen to music 24/7 and I am constantly discovering new and up-and-coming music that all I want to do is share with the world; and that is what this blog is all about.
Musical tastes: I like to claim I have a very eclectic musical palette, but tend to stick mostly to music of a rock-based lineage, although I do appreciate other forms and genres. I grew up on a steady dose of The Rolling Stones, U2, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, Traffic, Dire Straits and Classical music if that helps you get a bit of a picture. I also grew up a child of the 90’s, so that musical period has played a heavy influence on my tastes. I have a particular affinity for all things British Invasion, both new and old, and a particular attraction to the music coming out of Scandinavia for whatever reason. My first album I ever bought was The Verve – Urban Hymns and continues to this day to be one of my favorite albums. I have since been exposed to countless varieties of international music, jazz and large selections of “independent and underground” music.
Expect updates from me 2-3x per week, with my weekly “New Music Tuesdays” segment every Tuesday to discuss new music that has released.
