Announcing "Brown Bare Sessions" with bandmates Andy Suzuki '09 & Kozza Olatunji-Babumba '06!
FIRST IN A SERIES OF STRIPPED-DOWN SESSIONS WITH ALUMNI MUSICIANS
Andy Suzuki '09 and Kozza Olatunji-Babumba '06 (grandson of Grammy award winning Nigerian drummer Babatunde Olatunji) have been making music together since they were Brown classmates. Their NYC-based band, Andy Suzuki & The Method, have gained wide attention with their dynamic live show opening for artists like Ringo Starr, Sister Hazel, Amanda Palmer, and Marc Broussard. They were on a national tour supporting Allen Stone in 2020, and had completed 19 of 34 shows before it was cancelled due to COVID-19. Don't miss this chance to see them in a very intimate, stripped-down, bare-bones performance in our first of "Brown Bare Sessions!"
What do Andy and Kozza sound like? As their website describes it: "Imagine if the Allman Brothers were produced by Diplo. Or if The Black Keys didn't take themselves so seriously." Their early 2019 full-length release, Alibi, is their most cohesive, energetic project to date. (Stream Alibi here.) Their partnership with LA-based producer Juny Mag has infused the songwriting duo's brand of bluesy rock with Juny's signature futuristic production. As performers, they are as fearless as they are fun - their fans have been known to fly across the country to attend Andy Suzuki & The Method shows. In the past few years, they have given a Ted Talk at TEDxMidAtlantic, performed on The Rock Boat, and been featured in a NY Lottery TV commercial.
