Gay Pop Singer Adam Shenk at Bitter End Jan. 18th

With zig zags shaved into the back of his blonde hair and his 90’s R&B inspired music, one would say that performer Adam Shenk is entertaining New York City’s hyper-focused 90’s nostalgia.

And you can hear it in his music- in the synth and groove of the song Taste off of his 2010 release Suitcases but you can also hear traces of neo-soul, and jazz. But don’t be fooled- 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 90’s and tangle it with  the current, creating a cutting edge contemporary image and sound.

Gay pop artist Adam 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. And the verdict on the new 90’s boy singer-songwriter hybrid toy? Sugary and sticky hooks, sexy and evocative vocals, and a deliciousness that makes you feel like you are 13 again dancing in front of the mirror.

With an extensive history of studying at renowned music academies, Adam packed his ‘suitcases’ and ventured to New York to express his unique blend of music. Soon thereafter he began gaining notoriety, 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.

With a new video in tow for the title track to his 2010 release ‘Suitcases ’, Shenk is continuing to play in New York and the surrounding areas!
