From the venue:Oftentimes the greatest art is born of the right partnership. Lostboycrow, aka Los Angeles singer- songwriter Chris Blair, found just that while collaborating with producer Chris Chu on his upcoming album Indie Pop. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Blair grew up singing along to his parent's Beatles cassette tapes and watching that thing you do religiously. It was not until high school that he picked up a mic and started performing everywhere he could from showtunes in the gymnasium to pop-punk in a local dive. He later established his genre-fluid style with 2016's Sigh For Me EP, which he followed up with 2017's Traveler EP trilogy, 2019's full-length Santa Fe, and last year's Valleyheart. For Indie Pop, it felt important to Blair that he make Lostboycrow "feel more like a band,"? something Blair had begun to do on Valleyheart but sought to expand when working with Chu. Chris Chu, who performs with Pop Etc (formerly known as The Morning Benders), built his career touring with '00s indie-pop staples like Grizzly Bear, Death Cab For Cutie, Ra Ra Riot, We Are Scientists, and more, so was the perfect person to produce the record. "That's always been what I love,"? Blair explains of his musical history spent listening to decades-spanning pop rock bands like the Beach Boys and Fountains Of Wayne. Through working with one of his musical heroes and good friends, Blair crafted the most expansive, ambitious album of his career.
