The Como Brothers Band, Indie Music Bus™ August Act of the Month

Several months ago, I was presented with a once in a lifetime opportunity by the fine folks over at The Indie Music Bus™. I was named to a panel of judges for their act of the month/year. This panel is made up of music industry professionals... and me! While I'm no expert when it comes to music, I am a fan. And as any of my regular readers of this blog are aware, I give you an honest fan based review of all of the artists that I feature. As part of the judges panel, I have thrown my hat into the ring for rewards for the artists named act of the month with a feature post. So welcome to the first of (hopefully) many posts in support of The Indie Music Bus™ and their act of the month contest!

Long Island, New York natives Andrew and Matt Como grew up in a musical family and were encouraged at an early age to pursue their passion for music, and we get to reap the benefits! Forming the Como Brothers Band in 2010, they have played shows extensively throughout the New York City area and have had their music featured on MTV's The Real World, as well as Keeping Up With the Kardashians on the E! network. I'm sure an even bigger highlight for the band would have to be opening for the Wallflowers!

Their latest EP, Still Waters, was released in March of this year and is primed to catapult this band into a musical stratosphere not seen by many others. A personal favorite from the EP, Bad Karma, has a bluesy, rock funk that gets you out of your seat in a hurry.

The six songs on this EP run the gamut from rock to blues to pop, but it's their latest single, Straight Face, that should make the music industry stand up and take notice of this band.

Make sure you follow this band on their rise up the music ranks. Just yesterday, the band started to put out on social media sites that 10 of their songs were recently crowd reviewed on ReverbNation for an opportunity with CBS radio and were deemed radio worthy! This is a huge opportunity for any indie artist, so congrats are in order for the band. Congrats guys!

But most importantly, congratulations on being named the August 2013 Act of the Month on the Indie Music Bus™. I feel honored to have a seat on the bus alongside such a talented band and look forward to following your rise to the top!
