Adam Shenk is going to be playing on Tuesday November 30 at Cafe Vivaldi in New York, but if you can't make it to show or aren't local, you can indulge in his video for "Suitcases," which is the title track from his new release. Check out the video now.
With zig-zags shaved into the back of his blonde hair and his '90s R&B inspired music, one would say that performer Adam Shenk is entertaining New York City's hyper-focused '90s nostalgia and that's not a mission that many would easily undertake, unless they were bold.
Though his hair is a throwback, he wears a modern fitted suit and has trained with top New York choreographers to bring the best of the '90s and tangle it with the current, creating a cutting edge contemporary image and sound. Shenk is breaking the barriers of the traditional singer songwriter prototype; he steps out from behind his keyboard and engages the crowd with his dancing and indelible hooks.
Shenk garnered notoriety after landing a spot as a semi-finalist on MTV's Making the Band, performing for Puff Daddy, and working with top choreographer Laurieann Gibson and New Edition/Bell Biv DeVoe member and manager/producer Michael Bivins. Along the way he has been playing shows at top New York clubs including Rockwood Music Hall, Bowery Poetry Club, Bitter End, and he has held a residency at LES hotspot Pianos.
Forget the hipsters. Shenk is the new NYC! Just ask my friend Lily, who happens to work with him.
