If you can get beyond the fact that Adam is almost definitely gonna steal your girlfriend, there's a lot to dig about this skinny, shaggy-haired motherfucker. Rock It Up offers stadium rock savagery, 70s power-pop hooks, handclaps everywhere, and flurries of guitar heroics. Plus a pair of 3D glasses. The record's in 3D man. Deal with it. ” - Sleazegrinder

Video premiere: Adam Bones, ‘Highlights of the Lowlife’ L.A.-based power-popper Adam Bones and his all-female supporting cast of Rikki Styxx, Tracy Lambertucci and Breanna Fields recall the days rock ’n’ roll lived and smiled by the power chord. Bones’ new EP “Rock It Up,” his first outing since 2009′s “Feel For Tomorrow,” is an old-school spine-stiffener that’s equal parts riffage, rhythms and audacity — the last of which is on full display in director Brad “B. Radical” Spencer’s video for “Highlights of the Lowlife.” Here, the show-stealer is Gus, a four-legged fiend who paws his way into the hearts of fans. Cue the punchline about rock being a dog-eat-dog world, and laugh a little. ” - Kevin Bronson

Adam Bones – A Band You’ll Want to See Live! Adam Bones, the band, is comprised of four musicians including front man Adam Bones and his three-piece, all female band members Rikki Styxx, Tracy Lambertucci and Breanna Fields. Together they create music which settles itself somewhere between rock, punk and pop, although the band are far more concerned about creating good music than fitting into any given genre. The recent release of EP Rock It Up gives a glimpse at the varied talents of Adam Bones, though it’s easy to feel that this offering is just a snippet of the musical possibilities of the four-piece. Rock It Up is the kind of recording which makes you want to see a band play live. Bones’ voice jumps from even the poorest of speakers; deep, dark and dangerous with a story to tell. Not over-produced, the music retains an experimental quality and it’s easy to picture Bones and his band jamming in a garage or studio, creating the intricate layers of these tracks and having a great time doing it. There is certainly an energetic undercurrent to this music which suggests the musicians are enjoying playing the music just as much as audiences will enjoy listening to it. The four tracks on Rock It Up are as individual as they are engaging. “Run” and “Rock It Up” assault the ears, in a good way, with the band’s signature mix of heavy guitars, fast-paced lyrics and scrambling tempos. “Highlights of the Lowlife” takes things a bit slower, Bone’s lyrics slowing to a story-telling drawl in some sections, while “Kill Ya, Baby” touches on being almost emotive. All four of the tracks showcase the different talents of the band well, from catchy bass lines to soaring riffs and Bones’ drawling lyrics, the tight percussion drawing the whole lot together. Adam Bones is a group made up of musicians who clearly love to make music – the best commonality a band can share. As an EP, Rock It Up makes a statement attesting to the talents of this four-piece, marking the place in history where this band with a potentially very bright future first started.” - Lauren Sherritt

Adam Bones is aware that what you hear is only half the story. Given that, the first onslaught to the public not only includes the EP Rock It Up, but two simultaneously released videos from the EP designed to win friends and influence people. These videos not only set up the record, but begins to prepare the viewer for the ultimate Adam Bones experience: The Live Show. Rock it Up is only one-half of the story. Because Adam Bones is that rarest of entities: A classic rock ‘n’ roll band, aware that the disc and the concert are two separate theatres. On stage, their spectacular showmanship combines magically with their musicianship to create a total event. You’ll be able to see them soon because the band plays 200 dates a year, taking their music to the streets. And, after all, that’s what rock ‘n’ roll is all about. I’ll be recording a cover song and will be putting that out in the near future that I’m really excited about. I won’t tell you the song yet, but it’s pretty obscure and crosses over into another genre. And then, you know… total world domination. READ THE REST OF THE ARTICLE

“The one word I can use to describe Adam Bones is cool. This was the coolest band at the (KerPUNK) festival. Very focused, very serious, with a Jimi Hendrix iconic style, Adam Bones, lead vocalist, brought the audience punk rock that demanded respect.”” - Melissa Webster

“Adam Bones, soulful power pop/classic rock which is brimming with talent and confidence! Excellent singer/songwriter whose voice is powerful enough to do without a microphone!”” - David Bash, Founder/CEO of International Pop Overthrow
LA based rocker Adam Bones is traditional power pop artists with modern flair and youthful style. Fans of Bleu, Jet and Ok Go will find his debut EP fresh and compelling… Opening with the energetic “I Had You” he vocally reminds me of Elvis Presley’s rich baritone, and combined with those melodic guitar riffs, it’s a winner. He recently finished IPO in LA and after the country-pop of “Shouldn’t Love” I’m sure it was a great show. The gentle ballad “Feel For Tomorrow” is a deceptively simple, but an effective song that builds into an arena rock anthem styled after The Who. The buzzing hooks in “How Hard I Needed You” is another keeper along the lines of Lenny Kravitz, and I can’t wait for the full length album already. If you’re looking for a future power pop star — here he is. 8 out of 10” - Aaron Kupferberg

“What might one expect to see at (an Adam Bones) show, you ask? Rock and roll that’s a little grungy, a little raw, and a whole lot of fun.”” - Kristin Houser

Adam Bones “combines pure rock, melodic pop hooks and raw energy to concoct a lethal brew of rock ‘n’ roll that’ll get your hips shakin’”. He and his cohorts have gone back to basics on their new 5 track EP, “Feel For Tomorrow” - a ‘bare bones’ approach, if you will. If Adam Bones has any skeletons in his closet, they all come out to play on “Feel For Tomorrow”. His influences stretch all the way back to The Who and reach up to today’s modern rock. The sound is fun garage rock, with Adam’s voice strongly reminiscent of Scott Blasey of The Clarks. Bones has a knack for crafting smart pop hooks, but what I enjoy most is that he cranks up the amps and his confidence to deliver the authentic rock sound and attitude sorely missed from today’s music. He proves his versatility on these five tracks, stomping through Kinks territory on the crunchy opener, “I Had You”, while strolling near alt-country terrain on “Shouldn’t Love”, then slipping through some funky sleaze rock on “How Hard I Needed You”. Make no ‘bones’ (ahem) about it, this short and sweet EP is great end of summer music. He reminds me a lot of Eugene Edwards, but I would check this one out if you fancy The Clarks, Gin Blossoms, or OK Go. - Bill’s Music Forum”

Lead singer Adam Bones is a very charismatic guy on stage and off, a very down to earth person that actually took the time to chat with this examiner, take a photo and sign some stuff after the show. Very cool.” - John Tuckness

“Adam Bones charmed the crowd with his power pop tunes and cheerfully self-deprecating banter. By the end of his foot stomp-punctuated set he had the audience cheering his name…””
