When Thievery Corporation’s Eric Hilton and Rob Garza met back in 1995, they instantly bonded over their shared passion for bossa nova. The Washington, D.C.-based duo have spent nearly two decades creating boundary-warping, complexly crafted electronic music partly inspired by bossa nova’s intricate rhythms and lush textures. Now, after spending time over the winter in Jamaica recording their 8th album at Geejam Studios, the group has returned with an energy and passion that can only come from the heart of the Jamaican jungle. Synthesizing a diverse palate of styles and sounds into one cohesive vision, Thievery Corporation, once again, are returning to what has become their second home. Red Rocks shows have such a unique energy and vibe, unlike anywhere else.
Mayer Hawthorne has come a long way since his 2008 debut, and right now, he says, “Life is great.” He’s released three well-received full-length albums, had songs licensed for film and television, and toured the world with Bruno Mars, Foster The People, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, and the late Amy Winehouse. His latest, Where Does This Door Go, features a host of top-flight production work from Pharrell Williams, Greg Wells, Jack Splash, John Hill, and Oak (of Oak & Pop), who contributes the smooth and powerful single “Her Favorite Song.”
