LAist Interview: Cary Brothers
It’s shaping up to be a busy year for singer-songwriter Cary Brothers. With the fourth annual Hotel Cafe Tour beginning in just a few days and his first full-length CD, Who You Are, getting great reviews, things won’t be slowing down for him anytime soon. Brothers first received nationwide attention when his song “Blue Eyes” was featured on the Garden State soundtrack four years ago, and his fan base has grown with the release of two EPs and the new LP.
LAist was fortunate enough to catch up with this Nashville-raised, LA-based performer last week to get his thoughts on the tour, his CD and life in LA:
LAist: I'm sure you're busy getting ready for the Hotel Cafe Tour. What are you most looking forward to as you embark on tour #4?
Cary Brothers: I'm just looking forward to continuing the experience. The Hotel Cafe Tour, from the perspective of both a musician and (I believe) an audience as well, is a very unique show. The whole idea was to take a couple months away from what can be a lonely journey on the road and instead share that with good friends, experiment with songs, and basically just have a great time. I never get to see my friends anymore with so much touring, and this way I not only get to be on a bus with them, but also play music in a new town every night. That traveling circus camaraderie and energy spills out into the crowd.
