Adam

Gottlieb

       &

OneLove

With upbeat music and lyrics directly inspired by current struggles for social justice, Adam Gottlieb & OneLove offer their songs to the soundtrack of a new revolution. Adam Gottlieb (of the Chicago Youth Spoken Word poetry and Hip Hop movement) now writes primarily in the form of songs, brought to life by the incredible band OneLove, made up of Patrick Baranovskis (bass), Tim Williams (drums), and Aimee Bass (percussion). Comfortably rooted in a versatile Reggae-Fusion sound, the band dexterously fuses Folk, Rock, Funk, Blues, Hip Hop, Ska, and more. 

 

Because the message is for everyone, the musical repertoire intentionally crosses over into these and more genres to create eclectic yet cohesive musical experiences, with a little something for everyone. This musical universality is part of how the band stays true to its mission: to unite people around the movement for a new, more just world, using music that expresses the revolutionary spirit of our times.

You can find OneLove's music on Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes, etc.  Follow the band on Facebook and here on our official website: adamgottliebandonelove.com.


Thanks for listening, supporting, reading and singing along, and doing your part to keep the movement moving!

Adam Gottlieb (lead vocals, guitar) has led the project since it began in 2014. He has performed and worked across the Chicago area, the U.S., and even internationally as a poet, emcee, songwriter, and teaching-artist. He is also a community organizer, Curriculum Director for Teen Writers and Artists Project, and writer for the People's Tribune.

Patrick Baranovskis (bass), comrade and friend of Adam's and dedicated supporter/fan of OneLove since the beginning (when he was still in high school), joined the project as bassist and backup vocalist in January 2019. He plays in another local band, the indie/pop project Cider Provider. He is an Environmental Science major at Loyola University with a focus in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems, and also writes for the People's Tribune.

Aimee Bass (percussion), also a long-time supporter and fan of the project, joined OneLove as a multi-percussionist and backup vocalist in 2019. She plays in many projects throughout the city and beyond, including the local Street Glam/Punk Marching Band, Clamor and Lace Noise Brigade.

Tim Williams (drums) has been the teacher of reggae and blues roots in the band since he joined in May 2019. An established musician and producer in his own right, he runs Urban Sound Studios in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago (his hometown), and also leads an Afro-Carribean-Reggae-Funk band, "Urban Rhythm."

Longer Bio:

 

“I’m on a mission to free all of the people / I got a vision of peace on earth” declare Adam Gottlieb & OneLove in tight harmonies in their highly danceable funk anthem “Manifesto.” With upbeat, dynamic music and sharp lyrics directly inspired by current struggles for social justice, Adam Gottlieb & OneLove offer their songs to the soundtrack of a new revolution. The group has formed organically over time, with members coming from a diverse range of musical backgrounds bringing different talents to the project, all united in the cause of making music for the movement.

 

Adam Gottlieb of the Chicago Youth Spoken Word poetry and Hip Hop movement (featured in the 2009 documentary film “Louder Than A Bomb”) now writes primarily in the form of songs. After playing flute in the funk band Bubonic Souls during his college years, then spending a year as an emcee and flautist with Chicago Hip Hop crew The EyeDealists (both of which produced full-length albums), he started putting together his own band in the summer of 2014, in order to realize the potential of the songs he was writing on guitar, and create a musical project more aligned with the political and cultural work he was dedicating more and more time to

 

The songs are brought to life by the incredible band OneLove, made up of Patrick Baranovskis (bass), Tim Williams (drums), Aimee Bass (percussion), and a rotating ensemble of lead instrumentalists.
