PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
PrettyBird – About Dori Oskowitz, director of the “Never Close Our Eyes” video
Adam Lambert Obsession - JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE - “There isn’t a pro quality recording of Broken English yet so we’re limited to audience videos filmed from mobile phones. What can I say? I’m loving it so far. It’s an atmospheric sexy slow burn with a moody melody. It has a big swelling dramatic production which I can hear as a climactic soundtrack. The vocal is striking and powerful, though a little masked by the backing singers for the highs. The bridge is something else though, as Adam lends a beautiful haunting ghostly wail over frantic drumming. I’m very excited to hear the album version of this and an acoustic arrangement would probably slay me.”
MTV - Star Spotting: Adam Lambert Shares A Dirty Photo (Literally) “We LOVE everything Adam Lambert, like how his hair totally defies gravity and how his falsetto could take down Celine Dion‘s in a heartbeat. We’re even obsessed with everything he’s obsessed with (well, we are now)! So it’s killing us not to be 100 percent on board with what’s happening in this postapocalyptic-Dust Bowl-IDGAF ensemble he’s sporting in a recent photo. What’s with all the dirt, guys?”
Gather - Adam Lambert Talks ‘90s Influence on ‘Trespassing’ (Video) “Adam sat down with Singapore’s The New Paper to talk about his new music and revealed that ”there’s a lot of ’90s influence on this album.”…He explains that it’s “just really kind of a little more of a throwback feel, but I feel like they are produced, and some of the point of view, is current. So it’s updated definitely. But there’s a lot of inspiration from that time period.” Listen to everything Adam had to say about how ’90s music inspired his album”
Adam Lambert Official Unofficial - Jimmy Kimmel Bonus: Carol and Lila Meet Octavia! “Here it is, one week following Adam Lambert’s concert on the Jimmy Kimmel Live series, and I’d like to share some extra moments with you that Lila and I stumbled upon. I’m still so happy from the performance I saw. Adam’s style is truly evolving right before our eyes, and this latest phase is such a statement of his own artistry.”
Gather - Adam Lambert: Another ‘Trespassing’ Bonus Track Unveiled! “What appeals to Glamberts around the world now is the special UK song called “Map,” which at this point is not available anywhere else. Mapwas co-written by Adam Lambert, Oliver Goldstein, Joshua Abraham, Bonnie McKee, and Anne Preven.”
Sauli’s Blog – (PHOTOS) May Day & the Finns! Translated 5/03/2012. “I spent May Day Eve with friends in Anaheim luonna day and May Day celebrated with Bel Air Consul General Kirsti Westphalen, who organized by the party, called Creative Finnish living in California.”
PressParty - Queen say Adam Lambert shows will be “slightly experimental” “Speaking to Billboard, Taylor said the shows will be “slightly experimental”, and he said they will “see how they go, how we get along over the course of a whole show.”"
SauliKoskinen.net - Translation posted on GaleChester’s Facebook: “Happy May Day! I decided to celebrate May Day in this outfit! We spent May Day among the Finns in Anaheim. We had so much fun at an always tax-free celebration for a few days in April. Now we just pull ourselves together and shine! yay!”
Seattle Gay Blog - Adam Lambert interviews with Seattle Gay News “Lambert took time from a hectic schedule to speak with Seattle Gay News recently. In the interview, printing on May 4, the California native speaks candidly about Freddie Mercury, Josh Hutcherson, the city of Seattle, and pop divas (he names a few of his favorites)…Grab a copy of the Seattle Gay News this Friday, or read it online over the weekend at www.sgn.org, for a one-on-one chat with Adam Lambert. ”
Nile Rodgers – Last Minute Out of Control ”I found some behind-the-scenes video of my first few minutes with Adam Lambert. In it, I’m breaking down my initial approach to the guitar parts on his song “Shady.” Adam was late getting to the studio and I had limited time. I’d never seen this footage before because it was shot by my guitar tech. It was in a folder that I didn’t recognize labeled “Last Minute Out Of Control.”
Pressparty - Adam Lambert hailed as one of American Idol’s “best contestants ever” “Trespassing’ superstar Adam Lambert has been praised by American Idol’s very own Randy Jackson (pictured far right) for his phenomenal ability as a singer. Jackson, who is a judge on the popular talent show that helped Lambert on his rise to fame back in 2009, took to social networking site Twitter earlier this evening (April 30) and congratulated the vocal sensation on his recent Jimmy Kimmel performance.”
LOUD - May 1 issue – Adam is on the cover. “It’s the return of Adam Lambert! But he’s not quite what you remembered him to be … Lambert talks about turning down the drama and getting “real” with his music. He also talks performing with Queen and being nervous around producer Pharrell Williams.”
Diva Devotee - Vocal Profile: Adam Lambert Fun to read, a technical analysis of Adam’s strengths and weaknesses as a singer. “The belting range is Adam Lambert’s strongest suit. The voice possesses an elastic quality that allows it to stretch high up into the fifth octave and though the tone is light- when compared to the lower range- it’s resonant, clear, bright and truly impressive.”
CarterMatt.com - ‘American Idol’ notes: Colton Dixon, Adam Lambert, and Haley Reinhart “Adam a slight boost for Kimmel’s ratings – We’re going to stay in the world of late-night for another story here, mostly so that we can take a look at whether or not Adam Lambert’s performance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” actually produced some big numbers for ABC.”
