Happy new year!
Hope you've hit the ground running. Thrilled to be officially releasing my first single of the roaring 20's, Everything Looks Different To Me Now, on Friday February 7th.
I'll be at the Hotel Cafe that night for a show on the Second Stage with the magic band - David Immergluck, Michael Jerome, Jon Flaugher and Phil Krohnengold. We hit at 9pm sharp.
Time is Now
Coby Brown's 4th full length, Everything Looks Different To Me Now, was produced by Brown and Justin Stanley (Jamie Lidell, Sheryl Crow, Ryan Bingham) and recorded in Los Angeles at Matter Music and Boulevard Recording. The record features an all star band of Tyler Chester (Andrew Bird, Blake Mills) and John Flaugher (Andra Day, Joseph Arthur) on bass, Aaron Redfield (Hozier, the Bird and the Bee) and Michael Jerome (Richard Thompson, John Cale) on drums, David Immergluck (Counting Crows, Camper Van Beethoven) on guitars and Ollie Krauss (Sia, Tom McRae) arranging strings.
The video for the first single, "Cannonball", featuring Patton Oswalt, premiered via AV Club and was a KCRW song of the day. The video for the second single, "Tokyo", shot on location in Japan, was included on Apple's Best of Japan playlist and if there's a God in Heaven will be the soundtrack to the promos for the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo.
Brown wrote the score for “The Man Who Knew Infinity”, a biopic of the Indian mathematical genius S. K. Ramanujan, starring Jeremy Irons and Dev Patel and recently completed writing the music for KCET's docu-series "Blue Sky Metropolis", directed by Emmy award winning director Peter Jones and part of the PBS "Summer of Space" timed to the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing.
He'll be touring the west coast this September with fellow LA songwriters Brad Byrd and Greg Felden in support of his latest release, "Persephone", an ode to the end of summer and to those places that only come into bloom for a few months a year.
