“Adam Plomaritas may not know it, but he is an old soul. I'm transported back about thirty years when I hear his songs. His warm voice works well on the ballads as well as the rockers he pens. If there's any justice, his reworking of ‘Hard Way’, which appeared on his debut EP, will score him a radio hit.”
— John Bommarito, ann arbor's 107.1

    Brilliant Michigan songwriting and instrumental artistry in a double bill Ypsilanti songwriter Adam Plomaritas draws on the words of John Coltrane to describe his own art: "My music is the spiritual expression of what I am – My faith, my knowledge, my being ... When you begin to see the possibilities of music, you desire to do something really good for people, to help humanity free itself from its hang-ups ... I want to speak to their souls." He writes about things that happen every day, his family, and the struggle to live a good life. "I tend to think of myself as a rational person, but music is a place where I can feel," he says. "Music can be—should be—emotional. The music I make is about what I love, what I hate, what I enjoy and what I fear. I think that the idea that heaven is a place full of music is a profound one. Music gives us an opportunity to both touch and be touched by something greater than ourselves." Born out of a need for bluegrass in the Chelsea area, and a weekly gig at the Chelsea Alehouse, Thunderwüde (coined by Fred VanReesma) became a band after a series of sessions done by Jason Dennie, George Merkel and West Fritzemeier at the Alehouse. First starting as mostly a traditional bluegrass outfit, it morphed into playing originals from Jason as well as current pop hits in a bluegrass style. The repertoire expanded to range from Bill Monroe to Townes Van Zandt to some choice soundtrack selections from blockbuster hits.

You might say that Mariah Carey, Michael McDonald, and Stevie Wonder all got eaten by a Telecaster-toting grizzly. But perhaps Adam is most aptly described as the most winsome head-snap in the Detroit-metro music scene. His latest release, "The Hard Way", was named #3 album of the year by Ann Arbor Radio's John Bommarito. 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.
