Adam Fredric Duritz (born August 1, 1964) is an American musician, songwriter, record producer, and film producer.
He is best known for his role as frontman and vocalist for the rock band Counting Crows, of which he is a founding member and principal composer of their catalog of songs.
His work scoring music for film has been recognized by the music industry, notably with an award for co-writing the song "Accidentally in Love" for the movie Shrek 2 from BMI.
The reality, as we’ll see, did not quite turn out that way.
Counting Crows are about to embark on their first British tour in four years.
In 1990, Duritz joined with Bryson, and followed his lead in forming the band, The Himalayans.
In the Himalayans, his songwriting talents were beginning to gain recognition from the other musicians and a song, albeit in its infancy, "Round Here" was written at that time.
And what might’ve been quickly dismissed as a hoax was instead confirmed by Duritz, who Instagrammed a screenshot of his Tinder page late last night with the caption “Seriously? It’s my favorite video game…well, that or Floppy Bird.” We assume he meant , unless what he said is some weird sex thing.
Anyhow, according to the Counting Crows’ Twitter, the band is currently in San Diego, so any interested single So Cal ladies should get to Tindering.
Duritz has recorded solo material of his own and has collaborated with other musical acts.
He has branched out as the owner of at least two record labels, acting as his own artists and repertoire (A&R) man.
A year later, while The Himalayans recorded a demo tape for a major record label, Duritz and Bryson independently submitted another demo tape of just the two of them singing stripped-down musical selections, and they called themselves Counting Crows.
After both tapes were listened to, Duritz and Bryson's tape was selected; they were asked to record the song on their debut album as it was.
(He’d be right — the app said back in February that 51% of users are between 18 and 24 and 32% are between 25 and 32.) Duritz goes on to give some relationship advice.
