Tuesday, October 1, 2013 – Los Angeles – Days shy of receiving a five star review of their first full-length album “Baby Steps” from Examiner, The Como Brothers Band are set to release their new project on October 1st. The album will be available in select stores in addition to iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby.
Two of the forthcoming album’s singles, “Straight Face” and “Late Nights” were released earlier this summer and have quickly become fan favorites. Written by singer-songwriter brothers Matt and Andrew Como, and produced by Mike Watts and Tom Flynn, “Baby Steps” unveils the work of two talented artists.
Having grown up performing in a Beatles tribute band on Long Island The Como Brothers have proved to be true musicians. Channeling their love of singing and music composition, Matt and Andrew aim to create original music that is fun to groove out to, but at the same time can be relatable and meaningful to fans.
“We wanted to make an album that was as accessible as it was relatable. The topics of the songs are very universal. There’s nothing on there that will cause anyone to say, ‘Well, I really have no idea what they’re trying to tell me.’ Everything is pretty straightforward, and that’s exactly how we wanted it to be. We wanted to write a pop album, but on our own terms.” said guitarist and singer Andrew Como.
The Como Brothers Band will be opening for American Idol’s seventh season winner, rocker David Cook on October 25th at 89 North Music Venue in Patchogue, New York. Tickets for the show are available at: brownpapertickets.com
