“JENSEN’S WORTHWHILE CHANGE OF COURSE” (Link to article) – By Scott McClennan
Adam Jensen was getting ready to push the second single from his latest E.P. when the unthinkable happened at the Boston Marathon.
So instead of promoting the edgy video he made for “Dead Man Walking,” Jensen returned to “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” a song he had written with Candlebox’s Kevin Martin that seemed far more fitting for the time.
“Kevin and I wrote that in December. It was in the pool of songs for the last record, but was never finished,” Jensen recalls. “Then when everything went down, I just wanted to do something. What could I do?”
100% OF THE PROCEEDS from the sale of this song will go to The One Fund Boston, Inc. to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.
This song was written in November 2012 with my friend Kevin Martin (of Candlebox) but was never recorded. After the events at the marathon on Monday I decided to record the song as a tribute to my home and as a way to help raise money for the victims.
Our hope is to not only raise money for The One Fund, but to celebrate the lives lost in the attacks, honor the innocent who were injured, show thanks to the first responders, the doctors and volunteers, and of course, pay tribute to THE GREAT CITY OF BOSTON.

It has been a long, harrowing journey for Boston and for the nation since the sorrowful events that occurred during the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15. To give the public an avenue to support those affected by this tragedy, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Menino established “One Fund Boston.”
“The One Fund Boston will act as a central fund to receive much needed financial support,” Governor Patrick said, according to One Fund Boston, “At moments like this, we are one state, one city, and one people.”
Boston native Adam Jensen, established recording artist, producer, and songwriter, has dedicated a song to Boston with Kevin Martin of the band, ‘Candlebox.’ Having never recorded the song until shortly after the events of April 15, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone-A Song for Boston’ is a tribute for the purpose of raising funds for One Fund Boston. All proceeds will go to charity.
“My hope is to not only raise money for One Fund Boston, but to celebrate the lives lost in the attacks, honor the innocent who were injured, show thanks to the first responders, the doctors and volunteers, and of course to pay tribute to the great city of Boston,” said Adam.

The Drop List - http://thedroplist.blogspot.com/2013/01/rebooting-mission.html
The band Mission Hill has been a staple on the Boston music scene (and well beyond) for quite some time, and while all it’s members remains intact and continue to tour, performing all the songs that have established them as a band on the cusp of greatness. Only the name of the band has changed.
The new CD is called “Head on a String” by Adam Jensen (front-man for the band). The disc contains five original tracks that have picked up right where the act has left off, it also reinforces and delivers the message that there is no change in Adam’s ability to write insightful and catchy lyrics as well as collaborating with the band when creating all the necessary musical arrangements that have made so many of Adam’s songs in the past radio ready. Head on a String is no exception here.

Adam Jensen - Head On A String (5 tracks)
“I’m completely hooked, dare I say, in love with Adam Jensen’s latest release. What an incredible gem! How is it I had never heard of him? It appears he has toured nationally so I need to get on the ball here. Not to sound all music bizzy but, yes, he’s commercial-sounding (Matchbox 20’s Rob Thomas even co-wrote a tune with him), accessible to those who love catchy roots-infused singer/songwriter style music but from a pure music-loving standpoint, I simply dig every note of it. Without enough room to extol each song, I’ll just state each one’s a winner. This should be all over the radio. More, please! ” (Debbie Catalano)
