Lettuce Shares Adam Deitch Episode Of ‘The Krewe’ Documentary Series
Lettuce is currently gearing up to release their highly anticipated sixth studio album Elevate via Regime Music Group. To preview the LP that drops on June 14, the band has developed a new mini-documentary series that highlights each band member. Now, following last week’s episode on Erick “Jesus” Coomes, the funk act has released a new installment focused on drummer Adam Deitch.
To kick off the clip, Deitch notes “it’s always a fun process to write with this band.” Then, he elaborates on the songwriting process, “A lot of the songs we come up with and jam … I’ll take home and flesh it out on ProTools or on the computer and then bring that back to the band. The band will then completely … recreate that idea, which is what makes it totally unique—it’s a band composition.” He adds, “It’s the golden era of the band.” The drummer then speaks on Lettuce’s history and their current shared focus on the funk group.
Later in the video, Deitch shifts gears to speak more directly about Elevate, noting that the 27 songs the group has recorded are a “monumental feat” that “we didn’t expect to happen.” He credits producer Russell Lovato and his “zen-like abilities” for the band’s output, noting that Lovato has a “funk-first attitude” and that they are honored to be working with him. He also speaks about other collaborators he’s grateful for, including Jesus Coomes, noting that he has a painting of the Lettuce bassist in his home studio and dissecting the importance of the rhythm section.
