Here are some reviews on 2ADAM12

"At the border which separates Funk from Rock, there sit 4 gents who come together and deliver a cross-section of something exciting, fresh, and nourishing to the ears. Their name is 2ADAM12..."
R.E. Cheshire, CT

"...2Adam12 brings the same kind of expertise to their music as the Neville Brothers. Which is to say, everything is focused around the groove, which is the paramount ingredient that makes all the other elements work, no matter how disparate they may appear to be"
-Jay Miller, The Patriot Ledger

"The self-titled debut is a musical manifesto for the band's huge sound... The album features a slew of embellishments that brings each track to its highest level. From the chilling Hammond organ on "Passive Aggression" to the ultra-funky horn ensembles on the "If You Want to Love Me," the album utilizes every available tool to heighten the band's sound. While many tracks features guest spots from outside musicians, most of the band's complexity comes from its core."
-Patrick Walsh, The Vanguard

2ADAM12 was formed when Adam Payne crossed paths with guitarist Adam Dehner at an open mic in Jamaica Plain, MA in 2005. The two struck up a friendship, and began experimenting with some of Payne's songs. A month or so later, drummer Mark Purrington and bass player Mik Mersha were added to the mix, and the ease in which it all came together suprised everyone. They mastered Payne's repertoire of 30+ originals and a select mix of eclectic covers in no time... Obviously the chemistry was working. Their debut at Bentley College in early March as The Adam Payne Project was well received by a large crowd and immediately garnered press. Every show since has seen larger and larger crowds as their fanbase grows and they continue their quest to bring their mix of soul, funk, hip/hop & jam-inspired rock n' roll to the people.

Listen to 2ADAM12


An eight-piece jazz sensation from Lowell, MA, Jen Kearney &
The Lost Onion are the very definition of "music without
barriers." A Soul/Funk/Latin/Rock band, their sound has been
compared to that of 70s Stevie Wonder, Lydia Pense and Cold
Blood with the Latin overtones of the Fania Allstars. With
poignant and intelligent lyrics and a soulful alto voice, Jen
Kearney?s singing and songwriting has stood the test wowing
crowds and packing houses in the Northeast. The music of this
group combines elements of Soul, Jazz, R&B, Latin, Soca and
Reggae and balances variety in a spicy life all its own. You
never know quite what to expect and you can never stop dancing!
