"In 2016, where an always-connected generation screams for attention through new, often contrived definitions of “cool” and surprisingly predictable proclamations of uniqueness, singer and spoken word artist Tony Adamo arrives seemingly from nowhere as a true anachronism: a performer who is authentically “cool” in a timeless, almost reckless way that almost no popular artist today can match."

Music Review on Rain Man By Scott Yanow/Tony Adamo
Tony Roc Adamo is a modern day hipster, talking his lyrics as much as singing them and acting out the words of the stories he creates. He loves to groove and swing in his own way above the instrumentalists. On this version of his “Rain Man,” Adamo is accompanied and inspired by the keyboards and production of Roger Smith (of Tower and Power) and the drumming of Kyron “K-Frost” Kirby.
“Rain Man” deals with the end of a love affair and has a plea for the rainman to make it rain love his way. Over the infectious and funky rhythms, Tony Roc Adamo puts plenty of emotion into the story but there is also a joyful and optimstic feeling. One has little doubt that he will find another love soon.
