MORE ABOUT

TRUTH DECAY

Truth Decay covers a broad range of styles, with Adam’s keyboard wizardry leading the charge.

A must-have for progressive rock and jazz-rock fans. In addition to blazing and groundbreaking instrumental tracks, the album also features two vocal tunes, a departure for Adam.

They include the title track, co- written with Nick Beggs (who also did the vocals); and a cover of ‘A House Is Not A Motel,’ from the classic album Forever Changes by the 60’s group Love (featuring vocals by Randy McStine).

THE DEFORM VARIATIONS

Recorded live on tour with Steven Wilson in 2013, The Deform Variations collects the best of Adam Holzman’s remarkable piano improvisations around the theme of the track Deform To Form A Star.

A short piano feature in a progressive rock concert is a bit like a drum solo; you have to cover a lot of ground quickly, and there should probably be some fireworks in there somewhere. This format is not exactly conducive to dreamy pianistic meditations, but it does force the player to compress and economize ideas.

I would like to tip my hat to Jordan Rudess, who performed the original intro for “Deform” on Steven’s Grace For Drowning album. I use that as a starting point. All of these pieces, with the exception of those first few bars, are improvised.’ – Adam Holzman, Bronx, NY, 2014
