All this waiting…waiting…waiting has Adam fans all over (not just us!) frustrated and going absolutely nutzoid! We’re waiting for news of the single (title? drop date?), news of the CD (title? final playlist?), news of the Special Edition CD (drop date? special content?), and news of the “Time for Miracles” music video (premier date?) – not to mention just waiting for those few dates we *do* know to actually get here!!!
Adam sites everywhere are scrambling to find content to give their fans their daily fix during these long days. Many are taking looks back at Adam’s early career. So today’s fix…er, spotlight is on The Citizen Vein, Adam’s pre-Idol band. The band consisted of Adam, composer/guitarist Monte Pittman, bass player Tommy Victor, and drummer Steve Sidelnyk. Some of the band’s more well-known songs include Beyond the Sky, Rough Trade, Nocturnal By The Moon, The Circle, and Turning On.
Here is a short video of Turning On, from the Pitcher House in Hermosa Beach, CA. The audio isn’t real good, and the band sort of drowns out Adam, but I love Adam’s look in this video!!! Soooo beautiful and sexy I almost don’t mind not being able to hear him.
If you’re interested in downloading the Citizen Vein songs listed above or Adam’s other pre-Idol songs, here’s a great link for you.
Ironically, Dreamsound posted an article about The Citizen Vein way back on March 11th with another nice video. Unfortunately, this website didn’t have the amount of fans it has now, so sadly that article had no comments posted. I remember those early days very well – we couldn’t get a single soul to post comments on the articles! Haha, how things have changed. Anyway,if you’d like to view the video that Dreamsound posted way-back-when, check it out here.
So what do think of The Citizen Vein and their sound? Like it, love it, or not so much? Personally, not my favorite sound.
