Con Brio's songs are about love, hope, failure, and political turmoil – life itself. A deeply talented band of seven with a horn section to keep it brassy and sassy, not only does Con Brio possess the funk, but they’ve also got love and passion covered, too. “We don’t want to walk, we don’t want to drive,” band leader Ziek McCarter says. “We want to fly. We want to levitate.” So do we.
Known for their live shows – lively, ass-shaking, throw your hands in the air pure joy, Con Brio's sound is infused with funk-rock psychedelic soul that is reminiscent of Sly and The Family Stone. Fronted by a man some swear is the second coming of none other than James Brown, Ziek McCarter moves like his back ain’t got no bone. Paradise is the name of their 2016 release and paradise is where we’re going with this exuberant band. Watch the live version of their set opener "Paradise" live from Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.
Gary Clark Jr is a mind-blowing guitarist, diverse songwriter, and a singer with power and soul. We were honored to welcome him back to the Colorado mountains for the 23rd Annual Telluride Blues & Brews Festival. Watch the live version of "Our Love" from Saturday night at the 2016 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.
There must be something in the water in Austin, Texas. It is a fertile ground for musicians and from that rich soil of tradition, legend and camaraderie arose Austin native, Gary Clark Jr. His prodigy-level skills on guitar making him welcome on Austin’s storied stages transforming the blues and R&B into rock and roll. Watch him perform "The Healing" live from Telluride Blues & Brews Festival on Saturday, September 19th, 2016.
"Tomorrow Is Another Day" is a previously unreleased song from Anders Osborne that is sad, inquisitive and reassuring. This song feels like it was meant for acoustic, and we are stoked that he decided to debut it with our friends Gondola Sessions - let us know what you think of "Tomorrow Is Another Day" in the comments!
We just can’t get enough of Anders Osborne. He’s appeared at this festival more than any other artist and with good reason. This acoustic version of "Flower Box" is very similar to the album version, though the stripped-down style results in a track that is a minute shorter and really puts the lyrics in your face.
