Don’t mistake Stamps for your everyday catchy, contemporary, dance-inspiring pop band. Their mission is a bit deeper than that - “to write music that is fun for people, that helps them get over broken hearts and hard times.” Singer/songwriter Ren Patrick and songwriter/drummer Adam James first bonded three years ago in Los Angeles over their shared passion for music. Ren, a Texas native, studied jazz and musical theater growing up, while Adam, a Chicago transplant, has played with members of OneRepublic and OK Go in the power pop band Debate Team. He is the perfect complement to her powerhouse voice, and together they’ve just embarked on the High School Nation Tour, with Trevor Jackson, Blush and Justine Skye. While you wait for them to come to a city near you, sample their self-titled CD, available on iTunes. When they wrap their tour, they’ll be hitting the studio to work on some new material.
