X AMBASSADORS: The Audio and Visual Unification Plan for New York State

>> X Ambassadors are an alternative rock band with an indie twist. The band consists of: Sam Harris (lead vocalist, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, drummer, percussionist), Casey Harris (pianist, keyboardist, backing vocalist), Adam Levin (drummer, percussionist). The band has been on a mission to unite New York State through music. We had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Adam about their first successful Cayuga Music Festival, the pressure to overcome hurdles, and their coffee addiction.

Let’s talk about staying fresh!

X Ambassadors: I try to diet and exercise and to do that on the road, as well. I think it’s good to have a liking for music. I like to play golf. I like to eat, going out and eating...I love food. You know, keeping a balance of normalcy when you can because when you’re out it’s just crazy.

How much energy do you put into the live performances?

X Ambassadors: I burn through a lot man. It’s hard to do every night. Sam especially, he’s really doing a lot more than everyone else. He has a strict diet and works out every day, really works hard to keep in shape and keep his voice healthy. He really is dedicated.
