CON BRIO and LYRICS BORN

Con Brio knew they wanted to work with Lyrics Born the moment they shared a stage with him at Ashland, Oregon’s Armory in 2017. The whole night was a party,” drummer Andrew Laubacher explains. “We hung out afterwards and the vibe was great. So we all said ‘Let’s make some music.’ Eventually the stars aligned and we got the chance to work together.”

When the San Francisco septet and the Asian-American MC finally hit Con Brio’s West Oakland rehearsal space to record, they were taken aback by how instant the chemistry between them was. “There are a lot of personalities in our band,” Laubacher says, “which is an asset in so many ways, but can also be a lot to handle. Naturally, we’re always a little bit nervous to add another voice into that process, but there was nothing forced about it. LB was immediately on the same page. No one had an ego — we just pushed each other to be better. And that fun and easygoing spirit we had in the studio ultimately made its way into the songs.”

“Sundown” was a song Con Brio already had in the works, so Lyrics Born simply added a verse, throwing a mischievous and sexy curveball into what was already three thrilling minutes of euphoric romanticism. (“He brought a whole new life to it,” Laubacher notes.) “Mistakes” was a more even collaboration; equal parts punchy and soulful, and, quite ironically, an exploration of what happens when good chemistry goes bad.

With Con Brio still flying high off the release of their uplifting sophomore album, Explorer, last year, and Lyrics Born fresh from much-lauded appearances in the movies Sorry To Bother You and Always Be My Maybe, this 7-date October tour is sure to be a thrill-ride. “At these shows, the entire night is gonna be sweaty, rowdy and fun,” smiles Laubacher. “That much I can promise.”
