Biography

About AM:

The lead singer and founder is “AM” whose moniker is derived from his initials. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana he brings twanging Americana, twinkling folk-rock-pop, caressing Philly soul, and funky R&B whatchacallit to the band’s sound. He has drawn influences from various artists including the Beatles, Badfinger, Curtis Mayfield and Jorge Ben, and demonstrates over and again the simple fact of songwriting life: that imagination and taste is what it’s all about. AM was handpicked by French duo Air to open their U.S., Canadian, and French tour and also toured with Charlotte Gainsbourg in North America in 2010. They have been compared to Wilco, Beck, and Last Shadow Puppets,

“…AM writes literate, emotionally balanced tunes that are infectious without being moronic, hip without being oh so, and pop infected without losing their edge… he is a songwriter ready to be discovered by a wider audience, an audience interested in smart and sincere songs that speak to the vastness of the human spirit.”
