Album Notes
A linchpin of the Cleveland rock scene since the
turn of the century, americanrockstar operates
under one simple yet effective MO: making music
that connects with its audience. The band’s
knockout combination of shimmering pop hooks
over raw, guitar-driven hard rock creates a vehicle
for listeners to tap into their hearts and embrace the
music. Known for its unforgettable performances,
americanrockstar has earned a large and diverse
fan base throughout Ohio and beyond.

americanrockstar’s new album, “Adapter,” (FlipSide
Records) is a shining example of what the band does
best. Its ten tracks, co-produced by T. Wesley McCraw
and Jason McMahon, take the listener on an active/
reactive journey through the mind of someone just like
them: a soul searching for its own place in this crazy
world; in these crazy times… someone who craves
acceptance, love, forgiveness, and the struggles
involved therein.

americanrockstar’s previous release, “All That’s
Left is All That’s Right,” generated an overwhelming
response from listeners, critics and seasoned industry
professionals alike. Two weeks into its release,
“Holiday” became the most requested song on WSTB
(Independent, Akron/Cleveland). Within one month,
“Holiday” had also become the #4 track on WDUB
Internet Radio’s Top 100 Songs. The album is still a
staple on college and Internet radio stations throughout
the U.S. and abroad, with several tracks also in rotation
on WMMS (ClearChannel, Cleveland) and K-Rock
(Infinity Broadcasting, Cleveland). In addition, “Holiday”,
“Hold Your Own” and “Dead to Me” also became
successes on industry website, each
maintaining a 4 to 5 (out of 5) star rating. “Dead to Me”
currently sits at #20 on their all-time Hard Rock charts
and has garnered nine additional awards.

americanrockstar’s 2000 self-titled debut made an immediate impact, with several tracks achieving noteworthy status. “Poison Summer”
reached #1 and “Crusher” reached #2 on WSTB’s Top 15 Countdown. “Superhero” earned the #30 position on WSTB’s Top 100 Songs and
“Crusher” became #4 on WDUB Internet Radio’s Top 100 Songs. “Okay,” “Superhero” and “Poison Summer” also received airplay on K-Rock.

Additional Accomplishments:
• Showcased at the 2002 EAT’M Conference in Las Vegas, NV.
• Showcased at the 2001 and 2004 2NMC Conferences in Nashville, TN.
• Opened for several national acts, including Trapt, Sponge, Days of the New, 30 Seconds to Mars, Veruca Salt, VAST and the Clarks.
• Regularly headlines Cleveland’s premier concert venues, including the Odeon, Peabody’s, and the Hard Rock Cafe.
• Cleveland’s two largest rock radio stations WMMS and K-Rock frequently sponsor shows and have featured the band as an on-air guest.
