From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Adam Frederic Duritz (August 1, 1964 – ) is a musician and media producer.

Adam Duritz

He was born in Baltimore, Maryland, USA and grew up in Boston, Massachusetts, El Paso, Texas, and, since he was a teen-ager, in Berkeley, California. Duritz has lived in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and, most recently, New York City. He attended the University of California at Berkeley but dropped out before earning a degree.

Adam is lead singer and founding member of the rock band Counting Crows. Before forming Counting Crows, Adam was lead singer for Bay Area band The Himalayans. He was also involved in another San Francisco-based band, Sordid Humor.

He has collaborated with The Wallflowers (led by Bob Dylan's son Jakob Dylan) on album Bringing down the horse (1996), with Ryan Adams on album Gold (2001), and with Live on V (2001).

In addition to his musical pursuits, Adam has had a hand in producing the movies The Locusts (1997) and Burn (1998).

In 1997, he began his own record label, E Pluribus Unum. He signed bands Joe 90, Gigolo Aunts and Neilson Hubbard, all of which he took on the road to open for Counting Crows. In 2000, E Pluribus was put to rest when bought out by Interscope who had no interest in the indie bands that Adam had signed.

Duritz dated actresses Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston and Monica Potter.
