Adam Seyler digs deep to touch the tender side of love in newest CD, ‘To Be Continued’
The newest CD from a fusion band that features songs written and performed by two Issaquah residents has been released.
“To Be Continued” features eight original tunes written and performed by Adam Seyler, with vocal harmony from his wife Jennifer and occasional percussion accompaniment from his brother Nathan. Thanks to advances in technology, Adam performs the lead vocals and plays saxophone, guitar and the keyboard.
A music critic from Los Angeles said Adamink delivers a sound that is both unique and somehow familiar, with smooth overtones reminiscent of music from Charlie Parker and the Eagles with cutting edge melodies that were influenced by songs from Prince and Soundgarden.
“Music is a huge part of who I am,” Seyler explained. “The words and melody captivate my creativity and give me the freedom to express who I am and who I want to become.”
Jazz great George Clinton heard some of the music from “To Be Continued” last year while the various tracks were being laid in the studio. He compared Seyler’s sax riffs to the legendary Charlie Parker, saying, “He rocks. Adam totally brought funky new layers to the songs of some of the great ones.”
As an avid musician, Seyler takes his saxophone whenever he is away from home to be ready to jam.

Seyler said his music is an extension of the art he expresses through sculpture and murals. His murals decorate the lobby at the corporate offices of Amazon.com in Seattle. His has created commissioned art for private homes and local businesses for more than a decade.
As a true craftsman who communicates his emotions with music, Seyler utilizes his own inspiration to remodel kitchens and bathrooms as the owner of Creative by Design. The company is known for “remodeling kitchens, baths and everything in between.”
Jennifer is his partner in the construction business as well.
