Adam writes infectious tunes with pure-hearted lyrics and rhythms that could rile any dance floor. With an arresting, powerhouse vocal delivery, guitar chops no one can argue with, and a seasoned crew of the best accompanying musicians, Adam brings the party. Born, raised, and residing in Ypsilanti, MI, Plomaritas has played the coffee house/bar scene for almost a decade. He has taken the stage with some of the region’s favorite acts: Theo Katzman, Hannah Winkler, Abigail Stauffer, and Wayward Roots, and has even shared the bill with national acts such as The Spring Standards, Switchfoot, and Jason Upton. In March of 2012 he released an EP titled “Leave the Light On”. His first single from the EP, “Hard Way”, has received regular airplay on Ann Arbor radio. Off the momentum of “Leave the Light On”, Plomaritas launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording of a full length album due out this January. The new album is going to be called ‘The Hard Way’ and I’m really proud of it – it is fittingly named”, says Plomaritas. “Not only was the album completely fan funded, we decided to track it almost entirely to analog tape and track everything live, with everybody in the same room, whenever possible. The energy of a real band of people playing instruments in a room together can’t be beat. But it’s tough. All those people have to nail their part to move on to the next tune. To keep that energy high and upbeat at the end of a twelve hour recording session is as rewarding as it is difficult. But when people get the album, they’ll feel the emotion that went into it and I really think they’ll dig it.
