The mythical figure of Adonis was most beloved by the goddess Aphrodite for his striking beauty. He was elevated to the position of her beloved earthly consort for his visual appeal and the artistic inspiration his form provided. Mocha Kissed songster Adonis is most beloved by his fans for the real beauty he shares-the blessing of musical divinity-a gift only given to those that are meant to move others to artistic inspiration. In an industry polluted with mimics and gimmicks, Adonis comes as a breath of fresh air. Whether strumming his guitar or sitting at a piano, Adonis mesmerizes, if not hypnotizes his audience. "If one desires to know me all one has to do is listen to my music", he shares.
This Texas native has a huge repertoire of music and boast ability to not only sing like a cherubim but to produce and arrange his original music in his underground soul-rock palace the Blue Lounge Studio. Adonis reveals his passionate side on the lovely "Sounds of Pleasure", a song he wrote celebrating the union of woman and man. Glimpses of his consciousness and spirituality can be heard on songs like "Georgia Trees" and the soul stirring "Troubled World" a song inspired by the 9/11 attacks. A look into the perilous side of seeking fame and fortune is given on the driving electric "Jodi" featuring Thomas Bess Jr.
Adonis says "I aim to intoxicate with my musical compositions and sober with my lyrics". He certainly does that in his euphoric paradox "Acoustically Speaking", a 7 song EP he produced, wrote, arranged and recorded himself. He''s a singer, songwriter, a musician, a producer and as one fan hollered at a recent show "fine as wine child!"
Adonis is described by a noted label executive as "a fluid spirit weaver ushering in a renaissance of soul rock." He also has been described as an avant-garde rocker doing for "neo-soul" what Prince did for 80''s Pop/Rock-revolutionizing it. The eccentric Adonis is a potential cultural icon with introspective melodic music expertly designed for listeners with a thirst for pure, painful, unabashed, soul laden, melodic sounds.
Like a hybrid mix of chromosomes from Stevie, Marvin, Curtis, Al and Sam spliced with Jimmy (Hendricks of course) his rhythmic timeless epic is designed to speak to millions for ages to come. The hierarchy of Soul-Rock has been established with Adonis leading the legions. This artist has taken the name of a god''s gorgeous lover not as a vain attempt at false superiority but to move and inspire the world to chisel out their own works of art. Adonis has reincarnated in this charismatic artist. Once again descending from the garden of the gods spinning his sweet nectar through his heavenly vocals.
