From Small Gigs to Big Stages
In August 2005, one of the five deadliest hurricanes in U.S. history struck the north-central Gulf Coast region destroying much of their home in New Orleans. Through the devastation, Adam’s Attic was forced out of its comfort zone and responded by bonding together and stepping out on a limb. Joe Henry, Adam’s Attic front man, said, “Some of us lost everything we had, with the exception of our music gear and some personal items; all of the venues we played were closed or out of business. Only a week before Katrina, we were given the most amazing opportunity to open for Lifehouse at House of Blues New Orleans. We had to act.”. Leaving behind everything they had built in the hopes of recreating past successes, the musicians moved across the country and settled in California. Adam’s Attic had nothing but their gear and souls brimming with emotions. Relying on each other, they rose to the challenge of continually producing positive and inspirational music for fans. The music is written about the experiences of real life. Although we all have struggles, the hard times are merely a trial by fire; perseverance through adversity creates opportunities for success.
