New Song "This Christmastime" on iTunes! Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Today we released our new song "This Christmastime" on iTunes! We hope you enjoy it - it was a ton of fun to record.  Under the image below you can see the guys that we performed with on the record.  Below are a few fun interview questions about the song and Christmas.  Have a merry Christmas, New Years and we'll be out playing shows all the time.  Check the tour page for dates comobrothersband.com/tour.  See you soon!

1. Take us through the inspiration behind your new single "This Christmastime"

Matt Como: To give you some background on the song I wrote this song while I was in my senior year at college in my dorm room at Loyola University in Maryland.  Finals were over and just about everyone had gone home for Christmas break - I had a final exam on one of the last possible days! I was basically the only one there. It seemed like the campus was totally empty so it gave me a lonely feeling.  At the time I was dating a girl from Loyola and she had just gone home for break which added to that feeling.  I heard some Christmas music playing and being a growing songwriter I thought it would be cool to have my own Christmas song. I remember thinking that I hadn't heard any cool new and 'classic' sounding Christmas songs - everything playing is always all these songs that have been overplayed a million times so I wanted to make a cool new song people could listen to for the holiday season.

So I tried to capture all the positive feelings I have about Christmas -- lights glowing, mistletoe, snowflakes falling, stars in the  midnight sky, the smell of cooking, happiness, singing, family parties, peace, love.  At the same time I was alone on campus so there was a longing in the song to be with that special somebody and there was the acknowledgement that it is hard to be alone during 'this time of year' around the holidays. It was fun to write and I believe it was finished in couple hours that night.

2. What is your favorite holiday tradition?

Matt Como: Andrew and I have family parties every year so I'd say that's my favorite tradition.  It's nice to see our extended family.  We see my Mom's side of the family Christmas day and my Dad's side of the family Christmas eve.  Our Uncle's are all musical and played in bands growing up in Queens in the late 1970's into the 1980's.  So it is cool to catch them up with the music going on in our lives and usually someone breaks out a guitar or piano for a jam.

"This Christmastime" released on 12/16/16. Recorded in LA with Andy Burton on keyboards, Aaron Sterling on percussion, Andrew Como on guitar, and Sean Hurley on Bass. Matt Como singing vocals. Kenta Yonesaka mixed this in NYC at Germano Studios and Herb Powers JR. mastered it in his Florida studio.

Spring Blogging

What is up everyone.  Spring has sprung and we have been SUPER busy this entire year so far playing shows, doing studio time, writing, rehearsing, practicing, singing, etc etc. All of the above - we have been going at it 24/7.

ANNOUNCEMENT: In early April we went to Los Angeles and recorded two new songs! Aaron Sterling was our producer for One and Only and Maybe I'm Just Feeling Lonely. The mixes are finalized and we are getting the songs mastered this week!! We'll be releasing these songs real soon - we're so happy with them. We loved LA and can't wait to go back.

RECENT: We wrote a song with our pal Sam Woolf called "Sunshine".  What a cool tune.  Sam was up hanging with us in NY for the last week and a half.  We played a bunch of shows in the North East US including upstate NY, Long Island and Connecticut.  We also made it into the studio this past week to record Sunshine with Aaron Sterling on drums and Andy Burton on keyboards.  It came out awesome - pumped for everyone to hear it. It just needs to get mixed and mastered.  Mike Watts produced it and Tom Happel engineered it over at VuDu Studios in Port Jeff Long Island NY. 

MORE NEW SONGS! While we were in the studio with Sam we also recorded a new version of Make My Heart Move.  For the first time we were able to record a studio version of our song Magic as well.  Sam is singing all the harmonies in that song in the recording.

Andrew and I have plenty of shows coming up in the North East and we definitely didn't forget about ya'll in Virgina - we definitely want to make our way there and to many other places as soon as we can.

Thanks as always for your continued support - we are looking forward to releasing this new music and to a fun year ahead.  Lots of cool stuff coming!!

-Matt (& Andrew)

New Videos! "Stitches" by Shawn Mendes; "I Don't Like You" Live At 89 North

Hey everyone! More new videos posted in the last couple of weeks!

We did a cover of Shawn Mendes "Stitches".  I first heard this song I believe it was when I went to Taylor Swift's 1989 concert in Philadelphia this past June (2015).  Either that or one of our sisters played it for us. Regardless, we absolutely love this song - Shawn Mendes is an amazing talent with an inspiring voice.  And obviously, a great songwriter.  We also threw in a couple of our other favorite tunes from Ed Sheeran and John Mayer - we know Shawn is a big fan of both of their music as well.  Here is our rendition:

Also - we recently released this video of our song "I Don't Like You" live in concert from June 2015 from our new album, "Live At 89 North!" Aaron Sterling on drums and Andy Burton on keyboards.  What a fun show!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Until next time,

Matt and Andrew

Matt & Andrew

Thank you Taylor Swift

It is a risky and expensive time to be a new artist; we went into debt to record our new album.  But, music is our passion, and we are following our dreams.

Yesterday, Taylor Swift stuck up for new artists who are working hard and many times do not get paid for their efforts.  Taylor stood up for what she believed was right and changed Apple Music's mind.  Now artists will be paid during the listener's free 3-month trial with Apple Music.  This affects us personally, as we are set to release our new EP Imagination on August 10th.

Taylor proved that one voice really can make a difference. People can achieve their dreams AND give a voice to those who feel like they do not have one.  Ordinary people can do extraordinary things. 

Thank you Taylor Swift.

Matt & Andrew Como

Happy New Year! Hello 2015.

Hey all,

We hope you are had a great Christmas and are enjoying the holiday festivities wherever you are.  Andrew and I are enjoying time with family and friends.  We have been writing some new songs that we are excited about and we're going to have fun putting the finishing touches on those songs in the coming month (as well as making some demos).

2014 has been a busy year of hard work for us that opened the door to a lot of new opportunities.  We recorded TWO new records with some of our heroes including drummers Steve Jordan and Aaron Sterling (OUR FAVORITES), as well as a couple times in the studio with AMAZINGLY talented keyboardist Andy Burton. Carlos Rickett's Jr. (look him up - awesome vocalist) was visiting Andy and Aaron in the studio while we were recording our live performance album. We asked him to jump on and sing some harmonies -- you will be able to hear him on two of our upcoming tracks.  We worked at Germano studios for these two records.

Right now we are putting together videos, planning new gigs and getting a lot of cool stuff ready to release in conjunction with the two new records.  2015 looks like it will be really exciting! Expect a lot of this new stuff to be coming out in the Spring.

Happy New Years!

Matt & Andrew
