About The Artist
Both producers and lifelong musicians, trumpeter Ivan Jackson and drummer Conor Rayne met while studying jazz at the Manhattan School of Music and immediately bonded over their shared sensibilities, as well as a mutual aversion to conservatory life. The two soon started writing together and in 2014, posted one of their first collaborations to SoundCloud. Despite a lack of promotion on their part, the track quickly took on a life of its own.Within the next few years, Brasstracks collaborated with artists like Anderson .Paak, GoldLink, Khalid, Robert Glasper and Wyclef Jean, performed on é"Saturday Night Liveé" alongside Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, and put out critically praised projects like their 2016 debut EP Good Love and 2018é's For Those Who Know. Proving the power of their DIY ethos, the duo also completed eight tours and took the stage at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre four times before their 2019 headline Vibrant Tour.In early 2019, Brasstracks began the process of bringing their debut album to life, purposely reinforcing their free-thinking approach to songcraft. Brasstracks have received praise from Complex, XXL, VICE, Billboard, Earmilk, The Guardian and more. FADER said, é"Brasstracksé' jazzy horns and mixture of live and programmed percussions [is] a celebration of energy which offersé─Âa unique pleasure all its own.é"
