Adam is happy to announce that he will be continuing with the Steven Wilson band. "The first tour went really well, so it looks like this is turning into a regular thing, at least for now. It's such a great band, and a killer show. I'm especially glad we are going to be doing the US west coast, so all of my friends in California can check it out!" There are also plans for a video shoot on this tour for a live concert DVD. Click here for tour dates and locations.
2011 TOUR WITH STEVEN WILSON - "Grace for Drowning"
excerpt: "If Grace for Drowning has any precedent it's in Lizard-era Crimson, albeit with a new-millennium perspective, and Wilson's choice of band mates for his Fall 2011 tour only made the lineage clearer. His Montreal performance at the Corona Theatre, ...may have been a solo tour on a smaller scale than his Porcupine Tree tours, ...but with a group that included saxophonist/flautist/clarinetist Theo Travis, keyboardist Adam Holzman and drummer Marco Minnemann, the bandleader brought plenty of jazz cred to a powerhouse progressive rock sextet that also included bassist Nick Beggs and guitarist John Wesley, and was an eternity away from the symphonic prog of groups like Transatlantic, The Flower Kings and Agents of Mercy.
